INDIANAPOLIS — With the Indianapolis Colts set to begin training camp soon at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center in Indianapolis, Colts.com previews the team’s linebackers.
Continuity, and solid play, is the theme at linebacker for the Colts in 2020, as all three starters — Darius Leonard (WILL), Anthony Walker (MIKE) and Bobby Okereke (SAM) — are returning, as are key pieces of depth at the position in Matthew Adams, Zaire Franklin and Skai Moore; the team also selected Michigan linebacker/special teams standout Jordan Glasgow in the sixth round of this year’s NFL Draft.
Leonard, a Second-Team All-Pro and Pro Bowl selection in 2019, has established himself as one of the top overall defensive playmakers in the league, while Walker has been a steady and productive leader for the unit as a whole.
Okereke, meanwhile, could make a huge jump after showing plenty of flashes in his first NFL season in 2019, when he was named to Pro Football Focus’ All-Rookie Team.
