Indianapolis Colts wide receivers coach Charlie Williams was among the representatives from 26 teams on hand for Colorado’s pro day March 12. Seven players worked out indoors on FieldTurf. Most were on hand to see wide receiver Paul Richardson, who was measured at 6-foot, 170 pounds. Richardson posted a 37 1/2-inch vertical jump and ran a 4.23 short shuttle and 6.98 three-cone drill. He stood on the rest of his combine numbers. The concern with Richardson has always been his slight frame and if he’ll have durability issues in the NFL. I spoke with him this morning and was told he now weighs 180 pounds, which is significant. What you don’t know now, however, is how those 10 extra pounds will affect […]

In today’s Three and Out: Trent Richardson is eyeing “bell cow” status in Indianapolis; the Texans could be eyeing WR help.
Representatives from 17 NFL teams — including tight end coaches from the Arizona Cardinals, Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars — were present at McNeese State’s pro day on Monday, when eight players worked out outdoors on FieldTurf. The top attraction for those coaches was tight end Nic Jacobs (6-foot-5, 265 pounds), who was at the NFL Scouting Combine. Jacobs ran the 40-yard dash in 4.78 and 4.87 seconds. He had a 35-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-9 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.68 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.47 seconds. He hadn’t been in an offseason training program that is specific to preparing for a pro-day workout, so he didn’t run as well as he probably could. […]

Representatives from all 32 NFL teams — including seven offensive line coaches and Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano – were present for USC’s pro day on March 12, when 17 Trojans players worked out outdoors on FieldTurf. Dion Bailey, SS (5-foot-11 5/8, 211 pounds) — Bailey had a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-6 broad jump. He performed 14 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. He then stood on his times in the runs from the NFL Scouting Combine (he was a top performer in his position group in the three-cone drill, short shuttle and 60-yard shuttle). Bailey is a quality player who had a solid field pro-day workout. He’ll probably be a third-day (Rounds 4-7) […]
Wide receiver John Brown drew representatives from seven NFL teams — including a wide receivers coach from the New Orleans Saints, and special teams coaches from the Cincinnati Bengals and Indianapolis Colts — to Pittsburg State’s pro day in Pittsburg, Kansas, on March 18. The workout was held outdoors and run on FieldTurf. The weather conditions featured 20-30 mile per hour wind gusts, 50-degree temperatures and sunshine. Brown (5-foot-10, 172 pounds) stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine, which were impressive (he posted the second-fastest 40-yard dash time — 4.34 seconds — among wide receivers). Brown — who has 8 1/8-inch hands — did do eight lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press at Pittsburg State’s pro […]

Da’Rick Rogers came out of nowhere for the Indianapolis Colts to score two touchdowns and win the Week 14 That Helps No One award.
Tavon Austin had a KABOOM!-worthy day in the ST. Louis Rams upset win over the Indianapolis Colts, but he also earned the That Helps No One award as he was started in approximately zero fantasy leagues.
Reggie Wayne has played at an elite level since coming into the league as a rookie. A brief rundown of his résumé highlights: he helped the Colts win a Super Bowl, he made the Pro Bowl six times, he was an All-Pro three times, he led the NFL in receiving yards in 2007, and he’s also the Miami Hurricanes’ career receptions leader with 173. Pretty impressive feat since more than a few good NFL WRs spent their college days at the U. But his 2013 season came to a premature end as he suffered a torn ACL during Week 7 against the Broncos. Wayne haden’t posted enormous fantasy stats this season like he did in the past, but he has […]
The Cleveland Browns have traded running back Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. Marcas Grant says that does a lot to boost the star rusher’s value.

In today’s Three and Out: A swap of former first-round picks could lead to big fantasy opportunities for both … if they can take advantage.
