UConn OLB Trevardo Williams Visits the Colts

Michael Ivins-US Presswire

Here is a bit of news from Aaron Wilson at Scout.com that should make Stampede Blue writer and all-around awesome dude Josh Wilson a very happy man today:

University of Connecticut outside linebacker Trevardo Williams has visited the Indianapolis Colts, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

At the NFL scouting combine, Williams ran the 40-yard dash in 4.57 seconds and bench pressed 225 pounds 30 times. He recorded a 38-inch vertical leap and a 10-4 broad jump.

Due to an ankle injury incurred during his second 40-yard dash attempt, he didn't do the three-cone drill or 20-yard shuttle, but had a 4.35 20-yard shuttle at his campus Pro Day workout and a 7.24 in the three-cone drill.

Last weeks, Josh was fully on the Williams-to-Indy bandwagon, stating that:

The bottom line is that the outside linebacker position must be addressed with a pass rusher. The thing is, it doesn't have to be addressed in the first round. In fact, the player whom I want the Colts to draft could probably be had in the third round. Meet Trevardo Williams, a defensive end out of the University of Connecticut.

It looks like Josh and Colts G.M. Ryan Grigson are of like minds.

Williams had 30 sacks and 134 tackles in 50 games over four seasons at Connecticut. Watching tape on him, he seems much faster off the line in a stand-up position rather than with his hand on the ground.

For a more detailed scouting report, check out this strong piece of work from Mr. Matt Grecco.

The Colts also hosted Georgia linebacker Jarvis James this week in addition to signing Army pass rusher Josh McNary. I think it's safe to say that pass rusher is a spot the Colts are (THANKFULLY) looking to improve upon in the 2013 NFL Draft.
