According to DraftInsider.net Tony Pauline, the Indianapolis Colts were among the teams that expressed interest in Colorado cornerback DeAndre Elliott, as well as Colorado Mesa offensive tackle Zeth Ramsay at their respective Pro Days on Wednesday:

The 6’0, 188 pound cornerback started 11 games for the Rams as a senior, recording 32 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 4 pass breakups.

Elliott also recently stood out at the NFL Combine:

"“CSU’s DeAndre Elliott was one of the top performers among cornerbacks in several physical tests Monday at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.Elliott, 6-foot-1 and 188 pounds, had the second-best vertical leap of 41 inches, just a half-inch below Florida State’s Jalen Ramsey.He also finished second among the 37 cornerbacks participating in the combine in the 20-yard shuttle run with a time of 3.93 seconds – just a hundredth of a second slower than Temple’s Tavon Young.Elliott also turned in top-10 performances in the standing broad jump, finishing sixth at 10 feet, 3 inches, and in the three-cone drill, finishing eighth in 6.93 seconds.Television coverage of the event on the NFL Network showed Elliott running his 40-yard dashes in 4.54 and 4.44 seconds, but his official time went down as 4.55 – 23rd among the cornerbacks.”"

Meanwhile, the 6’6″, 280 pound Ramsay started all 11 games at right tackle for the Mavericks becoming an All-RMAC Second Team selection. He started all 11 games at right guard a season prior.

The Colts could use some additional depth at both cornerback and right tackle, so both prospects make sense from a positional standpoint.
