Colts' Phillip Dorsett has impressed at team OTA's
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Rookie wide receiver Phillip Dorsett is not experiencing any rookie blues early on with the Colts, per

The first-round pick out of the University of Miami wrapped up an impressive week of organized team activities, leaving a good impression on his veteran teammates.

"It's definitely not too big for him," quarterback Andrew Luck said about the receiver. "He fits in very, very well."

Dorsett averaged more than 24 yards per catch during his last season as a Hurricane, a stat that if he maintains as a Colt will get him on the field despite a talented group of receivers.

"I feel like I'm getting it pretty well," he said. "I came from a pro-style offense with a lot of concepts in college. It's basically the same concepts just different names. There's a lot more verbiage and differently terminology. So it's something that you just have to learn and get used to it."

Colts rookie CB D'Joun Smith: 'I'm probably going to be the best'
by Marty Gitlin |

Some rookies might be willing to bide their time and wait for a chance to prove themselves. Colts new cornerback D'Joun Smith is not one of them.

The third-round pick not only seeks playing time, he considers himself potentially the finest at his position in the NFL.

"Under the right tutelage and the right coach that's going to make my technique even better, I'm probably going to be the best cornerback to play the game," Smith told the team website."

Chuck Pagano declined to tone down the rhetoric. In fact, he welcomes the confidence.

"You don't want a meek kind of milk toast type of guy sitting there," he said. "This sucker was on the edge of his seat in his (Combine) interview. When he came in, it was all business. ... This guy truly believes. At the time we asked him who was the best corner in the draft this year, he said, 'It's me.' He plays with a chip on his shoulder. You have to have it to play that position."

It might take a while for Smith to receive the opportunity to prove his assertion. The Colts start veterans Mike Adams, Dwight Lowery, Vontae Davis and Greg Toler in the secondary. They combine for 30 years of NFL experience. Fellow veteran Darius Butler plays the nickel.

Colts newcomers Andre Johnson, Frank Gore fitting in fine
by Marty Gitlin |

Colts skill position newcomers Andre Johnson and Frank Gore have already shown a "relatively smooth" transition to their new team, Chuck Pagano told ESPN.

The wide receiver and running back performed so well in OTA work Wednesday that Pagano claimed that it appeared they had been with the organization for years.

"Pretty seamless," Pagano said about their work. "They don't miss a beat as far as the playbook goes, knowing what to do. Every time I see them in the huddle, break a huddle, to me it looks like they're going the right direction. They're lining up right. They're very talented, talented guys. They fit right into the locker room. They're professionals. ... They're not talkers. They're workers, they're doers."

Both veterans, however, have shown signs that their best days are behind them. The 33-year-old Johnson failed to reach 1,000 yards receiving last season for Houston for the first time in his last seven full seasons. The 32-year-old Gore managed another 1,000-yard performance in 2014, but his total was its lowest of any in a full season since 2008.

Colts move around offensive linemen at OTAs
by Shawn Krest |

The Colts are trying offensive linemen at different positions in the team's offseason workouts. 

Part of the reason for the shuffling is that a pair of linemen, right tackle Gosder Cherilus and right guard Donald Thomas, aren't taking part in OTAs.

Left guard Jack Mewhort filled in at right tackle and newly acquired Todd Herremans was at right guard. 

At center, Jonotthan Harrison appears to have the early edge over Khaled Holmes

"We've got some guys that we're moving around," coach Chuck Pagano said, per ESPN. "Come training camp, still going to be some competition."
