The Indianapolis Colts will meet with Georgia Southern safety Antonio Glover, according to Walter Football's Tony Pauline

Pauline noted that Glover met with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday night and then met with the Detroit Lions on Wednesday morning before then working out at his pro day on Wednesday.  Glover is then flying to visit the Colts "on an official '30' visit."

Glover played in 35 games during his time at Georgia Southern, starting 27 of them.  He recorded 140 tackles, eight tackles for loss, 15 passes defensed, seven interceptions, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery.  For his performance in his senior season in 2015, he was named a first-team All-Sun Belt Conference selection.  He is likely to be a guy who is either a late-round pick or an undrafted free agent.

The Colts have been looking into several different safety prospects in this year's draft, which makes a lot of sense.  Mike Adams is 35 years old and the team will need to think about the replacement plan there - much like they did with the drafting of Clayton Geathers last year, who will now step in and take Dwight Lowery's starting spot.  It wouldn't be a surprise to see the Colts grab a safety at some point in the draft (or at least bring in a couple as undrafted free agents) to look for the player they could develop to take Adams' spot.  Whether or not Antonio Glover could have a role for the Colts in the future is unclear, but that's likely why they want to visit with him as they learn more about him.
