Analysis: The 5’11”, 194 pound Celiscar could be a candidate to play either cornerback or safety for the Colts. Last season for the Broncos, Celiscar had 63 tackles and 4 interceptions in 13 games, in addition to his 17 passes deflected which led the nation. Like Bennett before, he was also one of Gil Brandt’s top undrafted free agents.

Celiscar is described as a “ball-hawking” defensive back, who is at his best in bump and run coverage, and had a lot of success playing man coverage for Western Michigan’s defense. However, he’s described as just an average athlete and may not have the elite athleticism to remain as a cornerback at the NFL level.

While the Colts already took cornerback D’Joun Smith in Round 3 and safety Clayton Geathers in Round 4, Celiscar could make the team as the 5th cornerback or even as another backup safety, with both spots certainly being up for grabs at this point further down on the depth chart.

Via his Draft Profile:

"BOTTOM LINE Physical, ball-hawking cornerback who is at his best in bump and run coverage. Celiscar allowed just 35.7 percent of passes his way to be completed in 2014 and posted 33 passes defensed and seven interceptions over last two seasons. His ball skills are no fluke, but his lack of deep speed and fluidity could limit his draft standing and force him into a zone-based defense. It’s hard to get a read on his open-field instincts, but it wouldn’t surprise to see a team consider him at safety in the pros."
