One of the Colts' biggest needs this offseason is offensive line, and the team's biggest need along the offensive line is the center position.  The 2016 NFL Draft is filled with several intriguing options, including Alabama's Ryan Kelly, Notre Dame's Nick Martin, and Michigan State's Jack Allen.

The team is considering their options at center, however, and last Friday was at Oregon State's pro day looking at Isaac Seumalo.  According to Oregon Live's Gina Mizell, the Colts worked out Seumalo "fairly extensively" last week at his pro day.  The Colts worked Seumalo out at center and perhaps other spots along the line too.

Seumalo is a very versatile offensive lineman, possessing the ability to play anywhere along the offensive line.  He started 37 career games at Oregon State and started all over.  He made 23 starts at center, nine at right guard, three at left tackle, and two at right tackle, making left guard the only spot along the line that he didn't play.  He declared for the NFL Draft after the 2015 season and is projected by CBS Sports to be a fifth-round pick.

The biggest thing that Seumalo has going for him is the versatility that he can provide, as he can play at any of the positions up front and is a solid player.  He would be a potential mid-round option for the Colts, depending on how things go in the first few rounds.  They need to address the interior of their line, and perhaps Seumalo would be a fit there.  Either way, however, the Colts are doing their homework on the Oregon State offensive lineman.
