Johnathan Hankins looks like a perfect fit with the Indianapolis Colts.

He’s big enough to stuff the run, versatile enough to play multiple positions along the defensive line and quick enough to harass quarterbacks. At 25, he’s young enough to be a cornerstone for the future and is just brash enough to give this defense some much-needed swagger.Andrew Luck Jersey

Yes, Hankins has all the traits the Colts wanted for their latest revamp, and now they’re about to find out if this rebuilt defense can play up to Hankins’ lofty expectations.

”We’re trying to get the ball in the offense’s hands as much as we can and we want to be one of the dominant defenses in the NFL,” Hankins said.Peyton Manning Jersey

In Indy, it seems like a foreign concept.

Almost from the moment the Colts drafted Peyton Manning in 1998, high-scoring games have been the franchise’s trademark.

The hope in Indy is that this offseason could,Vontae Davis Jersey finally, change that perception.

New general manager Chris Ballard invested most of his money and draft picks on fixing a defense that was ranked No. 30 last season, and it’s given the Colts a whole new look.T.Y. Hilton Jersey

Ballard let four aging starters – safety Mike Adams, defensive tackle Art Jones and linebackers D’Qwell Jackson and Erik Walden – walk away. Outside linebacker Robert Mathis, the Colts’ career sacks leader, also retired.Frank Gore Jersey

The projected replacements include Hankins, 330-pound nose tackle Al Woods, linebackers Jabaal Sheard and John Simon and play-making safety Malik Hooker, Indy’s top draft pick.

But there’s no guarantee the other six starters will keep their jobs.

Safety Clayton Geathers is expected to start the regular season on the physically unable to perform list with a neck injury, and defensive end Kendall Langford remains on PUP with a knee injury.

Cornerback Rashaan Melvin is trying to fend off third-round pick Quincy Wilson, inside linebacker Edwin Jackson is facing competition from three other veterans and nose tackle David Parry has been slowed by an injured groin.
