No active players can be on this list. I know it says Indianapolis Colts players, but Baltimore Colts players will also be included on this list as it’s an all-time Colts list. If you want to bet on the games check out our list of best bookmakers!

10)Jeff Saturday

Saturday was a team leader and was the best player on an offensive line that kept Peyton Manning clean. Saturday’s contribution in Indianapolis sometimes gets sold short by people who are not Colts fans, but true Colts fans know just how important Saturday was to the franchise’s success.

9)Art Donovan

Donovan was the first player in franchise history to be inducted into the Hall of Fame and made it to five straight Pro-Bowls during his 9-year tenure with the franchise. He was one of the greatest tackles in NFL history.

8)Raymond Berry

Berry is still third all-time in receiving yards in franchise history after spending his entire 12-year career with the organization. He was not a burner but his dedication to running perfect routes and catching the ball is unequaled. Berry makes this list because of his work ethic and determination.

7)Lenny Moore

Moore’s 111 total touchdowns are second-most in franchise history, trailing just Marvin Harrison. Moore was one of the first dual-threat running backs and the Colts would line him up anywhere on the field to create a mismatch. Moore would have been more valuable had he played in this day and age where more value is placed on running backs with his abilities.

6)Marvin Harrison

To this day, he still ranks 5th all-time in receiving touchdowns and leads the franchise in that category as well as receiving yards. Moreover, he received 114 touchdown passes from Peyton Manning, which is the most among a quarterback-receiver duo. He scored touchdowns and he scored a lot of them and was the most dominant receiver in Colts history.

5)John Mackey

Mackey’s combination of speed, raw power, and athleticism made him a huge threat in the open field, as he proved by averaging 15.8 yards per reception throughout his career. He was one of the first tight ends that could cause huge matchup problems and could even stretch the field. Take a look at our list of best new sportsbooks!

4)Edgerrin James

As of today, James still holds the record for most rushing touchdowns (64) in franchise history despite only playing there for 6 years. He posted back-to-back 1,500 rushing yards seasons as well. James for my money is the greatest running back in Colts history.

3)Gino Marchetti

One of the greatest defenders in NFL history was an 11-time Pro Bowl player and while the NFL did not keep stats like sacks when Marchetti played ask anybody that lined up against him how could Gino was.

2)Peyton Manning

Manning is the greatest quarterback in NFL history if you base it just off regular-season statistics. What happens to the Colts franchise if they do not end up getting Manning? Manning saved the franchise in Indianapolis and was a dominant Quarterback for well over a decade in Indianapolis.

1)Johnny Unitas

Why Unitas and not Manning at number 1? Unitas won 4 of the Colts 5 World Championships. He was the first quarterback to ever throw 30+ passes in a season as well as the first to throw for over 40,000 career yards and held the record for most consecutive games with a touchdown (47) for more than 50 years. Unitas quite simply is the man here as he revolutionized the position of Quarterback and Johnny U is the first person I think of when I hear somebody refer to the Colts.
