According to The Draft Network’s Justin Melo, the Indianapolis Colts are among the teams that have recently spoken with Army linebacker Jon Rhattigan ahead of the NFL Draft:

The 6’1”, 245 pound senior linebacker recorded 78 tackles (33 solo), 9.0 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, 2 interceptions, 2 interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), 2 passes defensed, and 2 fumble recoveries during 11 starts in 2020—earning 2nd-Team All-American (USA TODAY Sports) and PFF 3rd-Team All-American honors.

He was a semi-finalist for the Chuck Bednarik Award this past season, given annually to the best defensive player collegiately in the country.

As noted, Rhattigan also participated in this year’s Hula Bowl.

Here’s what they’re saying on Rhattigan:

Rhattigan appears to be a late bloomer at the linebacker position, who really broke out during his senior season for Army as a full-time starter—featuring tackling, toughness, and a nose for finding the football.

The Colts are facing a tough decision regarding free agent starting linebacker Anthony Walker and could look to bolster the team’s depth at the position all together.

Currently, Rhattigan projects to be a Day 3 pick or a UDFA priority signing before the NFL Draft.
