We can add another player to the list of those who the Colts have met with as they prepare for the NFL Draft, as on Saturday WGN's Adam Hoge reported that Northwestern defensive lineman Dean Lowry would visit the Colts on Sunday.  Hoge also noted that Lowry visited the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday.

Lowry played in 48 games while at Northwestern, recording 134 tackles, 31.5 tackles for loss, 12.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, 21 passes defensed, three interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), and a blocked kick.  He was named a second-team Big Ten honoree for his play during his senior season in 2015, as he recorded 46 tackles and 13.5 tackles for loss, as well as three sacks.

An effort player, Lowry had a productive collegiate career at Northwestern that should garner him some consideration from NFL teams.  He's projected to be a late round pick, and he could compete for a depth spot for a number of teams.  One such team is the Indianapolis Colts, as they have a very solid defensive line but could always stand to add depth.  Henry Anderson, Kendall Langford, David Parry, Arthur Jones, and Zach Kerr are all notable players along the defensive line for Indy, but Dean Lowry would be another player who could step in and provide some depth and compete.
