Where Phil Costa fits in as a Colt

With Jeff Saturday leaving the Indianapolis Colts in 2012, the search for a comparable center was critical, I mean the center is the only offensive player to touch the ball every play. In the years since, the replacements have fallen short of the benchmark set by the 6 time pro-bowler. Samson Satele, who was the starting center in 2013, was cut last month and with the hopes of making...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers sign C Evan Dietrich-Smith

Evan Dietrich-Smith took over as the starting center from Jeff Saturday late in the 2012 season and played solid in limited action and then graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 8th ranked center in 2013 in his first full season as a starter. He’s still just a one year wonder, but this deal is a steal, getting him for under 4 million dollars per year. I can’t believe the Packers...

Where are they now? Jeff Saturday

Coming into the 1998 Draft ranked as the No. 11 center available, Jeff Saturday was an “undersized” guy who had to work hard to be great. But great he was. Saturday started all 16 regular season games in just his second year with the Colts and every game thereafter for 85 consecutive games. Additionally, Saturday was the anchor of the Colts’ offensive line, which gave up the...

Best center in Indianapolis Colts draft history
