The Colts did not have a good preseason game against the Saints on Saturday night, and there is a lot that needs to improve if they want to become a part of the elite in the NFL. However, that doesn’t mean that certain players didn’t stand out and play well.

The undrafted free agent played some time with the first team during the game and held his own. He wasn’t much of a difference maker, but he was able to do his job against the first team offense of the Saints. The Colts need some depth at the nose tackle position behind Josh Chapman, so it was good to see that Kerr could become a part of the defensive line rotation.

Harrison is another undrafted rookie who has played well for the Colts so far in the preseason. Outside of Khaled Holmes the Colts don’t have much options in terms of depth at the center position, but Harrison has quietly done a good job so far. Don’t expect him to start Week 1, but Harrison has shown the coaching staff that he could be a contributor to the team.

The tight end has had a very quiet preseason up until this point, but he played well against the Saints. He was able to score a touchdown in the red zone and showed that he could give linebackers trouble if they are asked to cover him. He should be a complement to Dwayne Allen this year, and hopefully he can build on this strong game going forward.

Toler had a solid game against the Saints on Saturday night as he led the first team defense with five tackles. He was great in coverage and is a perfect fit to be the No. 2 cornerback on the team. Going forward he has to be able to stay healthy or else the Colts could be in trouble.

Herron has played a great preseason so far this year, and last night he managed to lead the team in rushing. He had eight carries for 68 yards and helped the Colts offense move the ball effectively. A case could be made that he should see more time with the starters, but that is doubtful considering how much the Colts invested in Trent Richardson. Nevertheless, Herron has earned a spot on the final roster and proved that he could make an impact.
