Colts fans far and wide should be ecstatic if Indianapolis walks away from the draft with either of the South Carolina cornerbacks. With that being said, Darius Rush is one of the most underrated players regardless of position. The two-year starter for the Gamecocks will make any team that selects him very happy.

When it comes to production, Rush can do just a little bit of everything. He's a willing tackler who can disrupt plays from behind the line of scrimmage. This is evident by his five tackles for a loss (one of those being a sack) and one forced fumble over the course of his two years as a starter.

Rush played on the opposite side of Cam Smith so he wasn't typically lined up on the opposing offense's number one wide receiver, however, he never backed down from the challenge and more often than not came out on top in said matchups. He's certainly more of a zone coverage corner than a man-oriented one which bodes well for his hypothetical fit for DC Gus Bradley's defensive scheme.

The South Carolina stud is one who warrants understandable concern but is far more polished than evaluators give him credit for. With his combination of length and ball skills, he's worthy of a latter half Day 2 (Rounds 2-3) selection if you ask me, though Indy may be able to snag him in the early portion of Day 3.
