The Indianapolis Colts reportedly hosted Fresno State CB DaRon Bland for a visit ahead of the 2022 NFL draft, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported Wednesday.

Bland, who is projected to be a late Day 3 or priority free agent, didn’t attend the NFL combine but put up some impressive numbers at his pro day this offseason. He also participated in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

This is likely considered a top-30 visit because Pelissero reported that the Colts brought him in to the facility.

Bland spent his first three collegiate seasons at Sacramento State (2017-2019) before his 2020 season was cancelled due to COVID-19. He then transferred to Fresno State for his final season in 2021.

Bland measured in at 6-foot-2 and 197 pounds with 32-inch arms at his pro day. He posted a 4.46 in the 40-yard dash and a 35.5-inch vertical jump.

While he’s certainly a project to develop, his athletic measureables make him an intriguing addition for the Colts late on Day 3 or following the draft when they sign their undrafted free agents.
