The Colts do a pretty decent job looking within their own state for talent. So, it is not surprise that Ray Fisher is someone likely on the Colts radar. According to National Football Post (who we are now partnered with; yay!), Fisher is expected to meet with the Colts in the next view days.
Fisher is a converted wide receiver who had tremendous success as a special teams returner in college. He led the nation in kick-off return average and set a Big Ten single-season record. Fisher scored two TDs on 18 returns for 650 yards. He also averaged 9.7 a return on punts.
As a wideout, Fisher was certainly no slouch, catching 118 passes for 1,070 yards and nine touchdowns in 19 starts. However, at 5'8, 171 pounds, that ain't going to cut it as a WR in the pros for very long. Converted WRs can make good corners (see Kelvin Hayden).
With this news, we've updated our Draft Interests page, which lists all the players the Colts have shown an interest in heading into the 2010 NFL Draft.
