How Stephon Gilmore impacts Colts CB depth chart

The Indianapolis Colts made a big move Friday morning by signing five-time Pro Bowl cornerback Stephon Gilmore to a two-year deal.

Adding the type of talent like Gilmore is a massive upgrade for the Colts cornerback room, which is a position that became a more significant need earlier this offseason when Rock Ya-Sin was traded to the Las Vegas Raiders.

With Gilmore now expected to be in the fold, here’s how the cornerback depth chart looks going into the draft:

CB Stephon Gilmore Isaiah Rodgers Anthony Chesley
Slot CB Kenny Moore II Alexander Myres
CB Brandon Facyson Chris Wilcox Will Redmond

Gilmore dealt with a quad injury for the majority of the 2021 season before he was traded from the New England Patriots to the Carolina Panthers so the Colts must feel confident he will be able to stay healthy.

At 31 years old, Gilmore can still be a major asset to the Colts’ defense, but this may not completely clear them of having a need at the position. It wouldn’t be a surprise at all if Chris Ballard still used a draft pick on a cornerback in two weeks.

Regardless, the Colts have made some big moves this offseason and that narrative only gets pushed further with this signing of Gilmore.
