OTAs are all about mental preparation and getting an early feel for each players and how they can fit once training camp comes along.

Here are five things that Colts fans should keep their eyes on as OTAs move along.

Outside of Vontae Davis, Greg Toler and Darius Butler, there isn’t much on the Colts' depth chart. It is going to be interesting to see who emerges to take the early lead for that fourth corner spot going into training camp. The battle appears to be between, Qua Cox, Keon Lyn, Kameron Jackson and Darius Polk.

Mewhort played tackle at Ohio State, but don’t expect the rookie to play that in the NFL. He has the ability to play center or guard and the Colts have to be careful not to overwhelm him with information too fast if they want to have him in the starting lineup.

The former rugby star is going to be entering his second year in the NFL. Adongo is a physical freak and according to George Bremer, he has moved his weight from 257 pounds to 282. It is up to the Colts to figure out how to use him and maximize his potential. Seeing how comfortable he is in OTAs could go a long way in seeing how much he can contribute.

After tearing his ACL against the Broncos last year, the veteran wide receiver looks to regain his Pro Bowl form. Don’t expect much participation from Wayne during OTAs, but an update on his health should give Colts fans a better picture of where he is along his recovery.
