The pre-draft visit process continues, as all 32 teams are busy bringing in up to 30 players for visits.

The Indianapolis Colts are certainly taking part in this, and one player they recently had in for a visit is Michigan cornerback Jourdan Lewis. Lewis revealed that news last night on Sirius XM NFL Radio, also mentioning that he’ll have visits with the Seahawks and Steelers.

It shouldn’t really be a surprise that Jourdan Lewis is one of the players the Colts have chosen to bring in for a pre-draft visit, as there are likely questions they have for him. Earlier this offseason he was involved in an alleged domestic violence incident that won’t be resolved until after the draft, so the Colts likely want to talk with him about that.

On-the-field, Lewis is expected to be an early round pick, going on either day one or two. During his career at Michigan, he played in 48 games and started 30 of them, recording 133 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, a sack, six interceptions, and 45 passes defensed. In 2016 he was named an All-American and was a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award. He would be a nice fit for a Colts team that will be looking for cornerback help and he might be an option for them if he falls to their pick in the second round.

This pre-draft visit was likely so that the team could get to know him better and get any lingering questions answered as we get closer to the draft. Either way, Jourdan Lewis might be a name to keep an eye on at cornerback for the Colts.
