The Indianapolis Colts will be meeting virtually with several prospects throughout the coming months as they prepare for the 2021 NFL draft and its arrival at the end of April.

Among those players the Colts have met with reportedly is former NC State defensive tackle Alim McNeill, per Justin Melo of Draft Wire.

McNeill is a powerful interior defensive lineman who will work mostly as a one-technique in an even front and a zero-technique in odd fronts. The junior out of NC State recorded 4.5 tackles for loss and 1.0 sack in 2020.

The Colts are pretty set on the interior but we know how much Chris Ballard likes to buildup the defensive line. With Grover Stewart under contract for the next three seasons after signing an extension, Indy could be looking for some depth behind him. They also re-signed Taylor Stallworth earlier in this offseason after he had a solid showing in a limited role in 2020.

Regardless, the Colts could be eying McNeill at some point during the draft, and it will be interesting to see if they are the ones to grab him at the end of April.
