A recap of what wide receivers and tight ends impressed enough at the NFL Combine to be on the radar of the Indianapolis Colts.
The 2022 NFL Scouting Combine is behind us and impressive is an understatement for the prospects as that hope to hear their names called on draft day later in April.
In what might be the last Combine hosting for the City of Indianapolis, this year was the fastest, regarding 40-yard dash times, for an entire draft class as a whole.
Lots of players made their mark on their draft status, and others not so much. Although some big names did not participate in drills, they still have collegiate Pro Days to get their reps in. We’ll get to that in due time.
What can Colts take away from the Combine?
It’s paramount the Indianapolis Colts do their due diligence as we enter the next stage of the offseason in Free Agency. It’s equally an important feat the Colts hit on the players in the draft they got to see over the four days at the combine. Especially the offensive players that took the field.
If you haven’t heard by now, you probably won’t ever catch on but Indy is in dire need of some threats to add to the offense, specifically at wide receiver. Finding the successor to T.Y. Hilton and someone who can be more consistent than Parris Campbell just may be in this draft class.
The news of Jack Doyle’s retirement from the NFL opens the Colts’ future at tight end as well. That’s a position also in need of a revamp with fellow TE Mo Alie-Cox on the roster bubble heading into free agency.
Let’s take a look at some impressive standouts and some players that could be available later in the draft after boosting their value at the combine.
