As we noted yesterday, just because a player meets with a team at the NFL Combine this week doesn't mean that he will be drafted by that team.  There are a lot of meetings that go on, and so when we hear of players meeting with teams we must be cautious to keep that in mind.

With that said, however, one player that a number of Colts fans will be especially interested in has already met with the Colts and expects to do so again.  According to the Anderson Herald Bulletin's George Bremer, Indiana University running back Tevin Coleman said that he met with the team last night and expects to meet with them again today.

Coleman receives a lot of attention from Colts fans purely because he played college football not to far from Indianapolis in Bloomington, but in addition running back is a position that the Colts need to address this offseason.  While it's not likely that the team will spend a first round pick on a running back, it's certainly possible that the Colts will address the position with a second round pick or later.  One very intriguing option there is Tevin Coleman.

Coleman rushed for 2,036 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2014, averaging 7.5 yards per carry.  He will not work out at the Combine due to a foot injury but will be ready to go at IU's Pro Day.  NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock praised the running back on a conference call earlier this week and said that he has a second round grade on Coleman, adding that if he's there "I think he makes a lot of sense" for the Colts in the second round.

According to Scout.com's Phillip B. Wilson, Coleman added that, "I'd love to stay in Indiana."
