Colts Bring in Memphis Cornerback Bobby McCain for Workout


As we continue the painfully slow march to the NFL Draft, the Indianapolis Colts have been working out more potential picks. Today, the team is reportedly working out Memphis cornerback Bobby McCain.

Aaron Wilson first reported the news at National Football Post. McCain is also working out with the Patriots and Buccaneers.

McCain measured in at 5-foot-9 and 195 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine. He also ran a 4.5 40-yard dash but was one of the best CBs in the broad jump, three-cone drill, and the 20- and 60-yard shuttles.

McCain played in 45 games at Memphis over four years. He recorded 136 tackles, 16 passes defensed, and 12 interceptions. He returned four of those picks for touchdowns and had a fumble recovery for  TD as well.

While McCain is projected as a late round pick, he could be a versatile player due to his experience as a returner. He returned kickoffs, at least partially, for three years and averaged 25.3 yards on 42 attempts.

The Colts are in the market for a quality returner as there are concerns surrounding Joshua Cribbs (namely his health but also ). The team also desperately needs depth at the corner after letting Josh Gordy go in free agency.

McCain is a talented player but likely will be limited to being a slot corner due to his size. Its hard to argue with his production while at Memphis, but he’ll have to find a scheme that fits his style in the NFL. Chuck Pagano knows how to get the most out of cornerbacks and McCain seems like the kind of player that would fit Pagano’s mold.

McCain could be a value pick late in the draft that can fill two needs for the Colts. If he happens to go undrafted, he’d certainly be worth bringing in for training camp.
