According to NFLDraftBible.com’s Christian Shanafelt, the Indianapolis Colts were among the teams that met with Lindenwood University wide receiver Greg Coble following his pro day workout:

As shown above, 6’0″, 190 pound wide receiver posted some impressive measures including a ridiculous 43 inch vertical.

The former Lions standout is coming off a productive season in which he recorded 39 receptions for 644 receiving yards and 4 receiving touchdowns in 11 games.

Coble began his collegiate career at Murray State before transferring before the 2013 season, in which he redshirted.

Possessing impressive physical ability, Coble could be a potential diamond in the rough for the Colts later on in the draft or as a priority undrafted free agent.

He may not have the name brand recognition that some of his other wide receiver counterparts have enjoyed in this year’s draft class–playing for a smaller football program.

However, neither did a former Colts wide receiver like Pierre Garcon once upon a time, when he was drafted in the 6th round in 2008 out of Mount Union.

That’s not saying Coble will be the next Garcon, but at the same time, one can’t discount an unheralded draft prospect just because the player happens to play at a small football program.

Just look at last year’s 7th round pick Denzelle Good out of Mars Hill, who ended up making 4 starts at right tackle and by all indications, could end up as next year’s opening game starter.

While the Colts are set atop their wide receiver depth chart with T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, and Phillip Dorsett, the offense could use some additional depth lower on the depth chart:

An athletic wide receiver prospect like Coble could make quite a deal of sense as a developmental project a little lower on the depth chart given his apparent exceptional athletic ability.
