Brockington Visits Indy

ColtPower has learned that running back Cornell Brockington has already completed a visit with the Colts.

According to Darin Morgan, the agent for Cornell Brockington out of Connecticut, the former Huskies running back visited the Colts more than a week ago.

Brockington is drawing interest from all over the NFL after putting on good performances at a pair of Pro Days.

Roughly a dozen teams showed up for his Pro Day on March 23rd at the University of Connecticut, including the Colts. And about twenty have requested game film on the 6-foot, 203-pound running back. He also participated in nearby Villanova's Pro Day on March 17th to increase the number of scouts who would see him.

After a 1,218-yard season in 2004, tops in the Big East, he got just two starts the following year after Terry Caulley -- the nation's leading rusher through four games in 2003 -- returned to the Huskies lineup. Caulley suffered a major knee injury against Virginia Tech in late September of that year.

The coaches' decision to give more carries to Caulley after Brockington's proven success over the course of an entire season was puzzling at best. And the result didn't pay off for Connecticut either. Caulley finished the season with a 4.7 rushing average, 659 yards and 6 touchdowns as the team turned to a running back by committee approach, using three different running backs to carry the load in 2005.

Brockington played in 33 career games with 12 starts. Over that stretch, he gained 2,198 career yards rushing (4.8 average) with 25 touchdowns. He also caught 42 passes 299 yards and a two touchdowns.
