The Hot List

During interviews with NFL prospects and direct contact with NFL sources, I was able to compile this list of players who either visited with the team, worked out for them or interviewed with them. Will some of them get picked up by the Colts this weekend? We'll have to wait and see...

Over the last few months, I was able to learn directly from players and other NFL sources that the Colts had contact with the following players:
