It looks like the Colts are very serious about finding a legit punt and kick returner in the draft this year. A few weeks ago, we posted a link from our partners at National Football Post about the Colts scheduling a visit with Indiana University kick returner and defensive back Ray Fisher.
Well, a few days ago, Fisher did indeed visit the Colts.
Indiana University cornerback and kick returner Ray Fisher visited the Indianapolis Colts today and Tuesday, according to a source close to the program.
Fisher was given a physical and a magnetic resonance imaging exam on his knee, per our source.
Fisher has also conducted a private workout for the New York Jets.
Fisher is a converted wide receiver who ran the 40-yard dash unofficially in the low 4.3 range at his Pro Day workout.
Interesting that they gave him an MRI. Sometimes, visits are conducted not because the team is interested in drafting a guy, but because they want to cross him off their list.If Fisher failed the team's physical, or his knee was to up to snuff, Polian would knock Fisher off his board and be done with it.
However, since Fisher played in (practically) the Colts back yard down in Bloomington, IN, they likely have seen him in person before. So, for me, this visit and the physicals and whatnot suggest that the Colts like Fisher.
Indy is also set to have South Dakota linebacker Danny Batten in for a visit soon. We've updated the Colts Draft Interest page with Batten and a few other players. Check it out for up-to-date info on who the Colts are interested in potentially drafting.
