What will the Indianapolis Colts' roster look like at the end of training camp? Here is an educated guess on which players will make the roster.

Andrew Luck
Matt Hasselbeck
Chandler Harnish

Unless Luck gets hurt and has to miss time, look for Hasselbeck and Harnish to do a lot of clipboard-holding this season.

Trent Richardson
Ahmad Bradshaw
Dan Herron

A lot can change between now and the end of August, and the team may sign a back waived by another team. For now, Richardson looks to be the No. 1 back unless Bradshaw is lights-out in camp.

Wide receiver (6)

Reggie Wayne
Hakeem Nicks
T.Y. Hilton
Da'Rick Rogers
Griff Whalen
Donte Moncrief

Wayne is the key to how well this lineup does as he returns from knee surgery. Hilton will likely play more on special teams than anywhere else, but don't rule him out catching a few passes.

Coby Fleener
Dwayne Allen
Jack Doyle

Unless Fleener gets hurt, there's no way Luck's former Stanford teammate will miss out on catching passes. The others will be kept around as window dressing or to serve as blockers in needed plays.

Anthony Castonzo (LT)
Joe Reitz (LG)
Khaled Holmes (C)
Jack Mewhort (RG)
Gosder Cherilus (RT)
Ulrich John (LT)
Xavier Nixon (RT)
Josh Walker (LG)
Hugh Thornton (RG)
Jonotthan Harrison (C)

Obviously Castonzo and Cherilus need to guard both ends from opposing defenders, but the reality is that the whole offensive line needed a makeover.

Defensive line (6)

Cory Redding DE
Arthur Jones DE
Josh Chapman NT
Zach Kerr NT
Ricky Jean Francois DT
Jeris Pendleton DT

The Colts grabbed Jones from the Baltimore Ravens in free agency, which should bolster this team immediately at a key position.

Linebacker (7)

Robert Mathis Colts

Robert Mathis OLB
Erik Walden OLB
D'Qwell Jackson ILB
Jerrell Freeman ILB
Bjoern Werner OLB
Mario Harvey ILB
Anthony Studebaker OLB

Mathis will miss the first four games due to a drug-related suspension, but he will bounce back nicely.

Defensive back (8)

LaRon Landry Colts

LaRon Landry SS
Greg Toler CB
Delano Howell FS
Vontae Davis CB
Darius Butler CB
Mike Adams FS
Sergio Brown SS
Josh Gordy CB

No surprise here that Landry and Davis are the two most feared defensive backs on the field.

Special teams (4)

Adam Vinatieri K
Pat McAfee P
T.Y. Hilton KR/PR
Griff Whalen KR/PR

Vinatieri and McAfee are no-brainers on the field at their respective positions, providing much-needed stability.
