At center, second-year man Khaled Holmes had only a dozen snaps last season as a rookie with Indianapolis. Now with the decision to release two-year starter Samson Satele and not re-sign McGlynn, Holmes will go into the 2014 season as the team's top option at the center position.
The depth includes a pair of undrafted rookies -- former Florida center Jonathan Harrison and a local product in ex-Indiana State center FN Lutz III. Guard Hugh Thornton could move in to play the position if needed and another guard, Donald Thomas (who is recovering from injuries suffered early last season), has limited experience at center.
Meanwhile, cornerback Qua Cox, an undrafted rookie from Jackson State made a quick impression on the coaching staff this spring. The 6-foot, 185-pound native of Tuskegee, Ala., intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown in the team's rookie minicamp. He played well when given the opportunity during OTAs. On a team needing to improve its depth at the cornerback position, Cox has a real chance to make the Colts' 53-man roster if he continues to perform at that level.
