The Indianapolis Colts might be looking for a cornerback in the upcoming NFL Draft after they let Josh Gordy walk in free agency, as they're likely going to be looking for an upgrade at the fourth cornerback spot. We've already heard a report recently that the Colts visited with and worked out potential a late-round cornerback prospect in Marshall's Darryl Roberts, and now we've got another report of the Colts visiting with and working out a potential late-round cornerback prospect: Memphis' Bobby McCain.
This report comes from the National Football Post's Aaron Wilson, who says that McCain has visited with the Colts and will meet with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as well, and that the Colts and Patriots have also privately worked him out.
In four seasons at Memphis, McCain (5-9, 195 pounds) played in 45 career games, totaling 136 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble, three fumble recoveries, 15 passes defensed, and 12 interceptions (including 11 over the past two seasons). He also added a 61 yard reception in his career and proved to be a capable kick returner, returning 42 career kicks and averaging 25.3 yards per return.
For the Colts, McCain would likely step in and compete for the fourth or fifth cornerback spot in training camp, and he would also provide potential as a returner - something the Colts also might have interest in adding. He's expected to be a day three draft pick, and he could be an intriguing option for the Colts there. He's undersized and needs some work, but he has the talent and instincts that might appeal to Chuck Pagano, a former defensive backs coach who has done a good job with the Colts' corners since arriving. As a mid-to-late draft pick, McCain would be worth looking into for the Colts as a developmental corner who could come in and compete for a spot in camp. The Colts are looking into him more, as they both worked him out and visited with him.
