    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>Under a new coach, we don't yet know if or how the defense of the <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ind" target="_new">Indianapolis Colts</a> will be reshaped.</p> <p>But given a chance to add any player in the NFL to their roster, perhaps a big defensive tackle would be the way to go. Indy's small, fast defense could surely learn to work around an <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3543" target="_new">Albert Haynesworth</a>.</p> <p>Where else to look with such a selection?</p> <p>The Colts always find linebackers who can play as they like, and the secondary is in reasonable shape, particularly when strong safety <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5569" target="_new">Bob Sanders</a> is healthy.</p> <p>The team could well be preparing to draft another wide receiver -- and a <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=5528" target="_new">Larry Fitzgerald</a> or <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4461" target="_new">Andre Johnson</a> would make for a nice replacement for <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=939" target="_new">Marvin Harrison</a> to pair with <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2578" target="_new">Reggie Wayne</a>. Or should it be a building-block left tackle who is quick but more physical than <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10486" target="_new">Tony Ugoh</a>?</p> <p>If <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9616" target="_new">Joseph Addai</a> had more troubles beyond just injuries last year, what if the Colts put a premier one-cut running back behind <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1428" target="_new">Peyton Manning</a>?</p> <p>I invite you to chime in -- with comments here or <a href="http://proxy.espn.go.com/chat/mailbagESPN?event_id=21417" target="_blank">notes to the mailbag</a>. After I see what you have to say, I will make a plus-one selection for the Colts by week's end.</p>
