It's that time of year for draft visits, and we've been hearing about a number of them - something that will surely continue for the next month.  The National Football Post's Aaron Wilson has been on top of several of them, and he added another one to the list for the Coltsaccording to Wilson, Incarnate Word linebacker Myke Tavarres will visit the Colts on April 7.

Tavarres began his collegiate career at the College of the Siskiyous in California, where he was a two-time All-Conference selection.  During his time there, he recorded 136 tackles, 25 tackles for loss, seven sacks, three interceptions, nine passes defensed, two fumble recoveries, and a forced fumble.  He then transferred to Arkansas, where he spent the 2013 season, and then transferred again to Incarnate Word.  In 2015, he recorded 110 tackles, 22.5 tackles for loss, and 8.5 sacks at Incarnate Word.  He is projected to be an undrafted outside linebacker by CBS Sports.

There's not a ton of information avaialble on Tavarres, making it unclear exactly what position he would play with the Colts (whether outside or inside linebacker).  His production in college, however, is noteworthy, and it would make sense for a team to take a look at all areas.  The Colts have shown the tendency to look all over for prospects, and Myke Tavarres is no different.  This might be as simple as the Colts keeping tabs on players who they could be able to sign as undrafted free agents or putting their foot in the door should Tavarres become a free agent and have a choice of teams, but either way the Colts are looking all over to try to find talent, which should be encouraging.
