Earlier today, the National Football Post's Aaron Wilson reported a wide receiver that the Indianapolis Colts have worked out during the draft process, Cal's Kenny Lawler.  Later in the day, Wilson added another one as he reported that the Colts worked out Jacksonville University wide receiver Andy Jones this week.  Wilson notes that Jones has also visited the Arizona Cardinals and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Jones played in 41 games over the past four years at Jacksonville University, recording 144 receptions for 2,120 yards and 17 touchdowns while averaging 14.7 yards per catch.  During his senior season in 2015, he played in ten games and caught 60 passes for 890 yards and eight scores (14.8 yards per catch).  At Jacksonville University's pro day, he ran a 4.5 40-yard dash and had a 41.5 inch vertical jump - a mark that would have tied for the best at the NFL Combine with cornerback Jalen Ramsey.  Wilson also reports that Jones was asked by the Baltimore Ravens to go through defensive back drills at the University of Florida's pro day and that Jones did "exceptionally well."

With the Colts, there's always the chance that Andy Jones could be moved to defensive back, but it seems more likely at this point to think that he'd be a wide receiver (especially if he's an undrafted free agent, where he might choose to sign with a team that would play him at wideout).  The Colts have shown interest in plenty of receivers throughout the draft process, so it wouldn't be at all surprising to see the Colts add a player at the position at some point.  Jones will likely be a late-round pick if he is drafted and otherwise would be an undrafted free agent, but regardless the Colts will likely be looking to add help at the position and Andy Jones could present an interesting option for them.
