As the Indianapolis Colts continue to look into pass rushers in the upcoming NFL Draft, they met with NC State's Mike Rose at his pro day earlier this week, according to the National Football Post's Aaron Wilson.

Wilson notes that Rose met individually with several teams, as in addition to the Colts Rose met with the San Diego Chargers, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Francisco 49ers, and Denver Broncos.

Rose, a 6-2, 261 pound pass rusher, impressed at his pro day after not being invited to the NFL Scouting Combine (he did participate in the East-West Shrine Game, however).  During his senior season at NC State, he started all 13 games and recorded 51 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 10.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, and a pass defensed.  He proved to be a productive pass rusher during his collegiate career, and in 2015 he led the team in both sacks and tackles for loss.  CBS Sports doesn't project him getting drafted, but it's possible he could sneak into the draft as a late round prospect.

The Colts are a team that desperately needs pass rush help, and they're looking all over the place to scout the upcoming draft class in an effort to find players that could be able to help them.  That's a good thing, and the Colts have met with a number of individuals who they could be considering adding in the upcoming draft.  One fo those players could be Mike Rose, as the team talked with him at his pro day earlier this week  It wouldn't be a bad addition, either, as the Colts could do a lot worse than taking a late-round or undrafted free agent flier on a guy who could give them some pass rush help.
