It's no secret that, when healthy, the Colts have one of if not the best starting safety tandems in the league, featuring SS Bob Sanders and FS Antoine Bethea. SS Mevlin Bullitt, who has started 21 games the past two seasons in place of the oft-injured Sanders, also has shown that he is fully capable of making big plays. The way we hear it, another safety has impressed the Colts this summer — undrafted rookie Mike Newton. At 5-10, 197 pounds, the University of Buffalo product is undersized, but has a nose for the football, as witnessed by his three picks in the first scrimmage of training camp. After spending most of his time playing free safety in college, Newton has done a nice job thus far at strong safety with the Colts. Although he is young and inexperienced, Newton has been in the right place more often than not, and appears to be the leading candidate to be the team's fourth safety.
