Corey Roberts, TE
Sam Houston State
2005 stats: 42-485-5 receiving/4 assisted tackles
The player: It astounds me how the Colts seem to find and sign guys like Roberts every year. A moderately successful wide receiver, Roberts outgrew the position and morphed into a highly productive tight end who also lined up at H-back, in the slot and even in the backfield. Blessed with exceptional hands and vision, Roberts is still learning his new positions, but is already adept at crossing patterns and can lay a nasty block on the move. He's not really much of a in-line blocker and would be better suited as a motion man in the pros. Despite being the Bearkats' top offensive threat, he was also a significant special-teams player.
How he fits: Although the Colts are very deep at tight end, Roberts' hands and ability to contribute at different positions could help him push his way onto the roster.
