INDIANAPOLIS — Whomever the Indianapolis Colts end up selecting with the 15th-overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, it appears they will be getting quite the athlete.

With the annual NFL Scouting Combine in town the past week, more than 300 of the best college prospects were seen filing in and out of Lucas Oil Stadium and the Indiana Convention Center to show their stuff in a variety of tests — whether they're on-field drills or more mental tests like team and media interviews — and, for the most part, this crop has proven itself to be very deep in terms of talent.

The Colts and new general manager Chris Ballard certainly have a multitude of options when they get on the clock at No. 15 overall. While the team has plenty of perceived "needs," oftentimes a general manager and his staff will stay true to their specific board, and pick the best-overall player remaining.

And, like every year, there's all kinds of experts and pundits weighing in with what they feel the Colts and every other team should do with their picks.

** denotes prospect was reportedly sent home from the Combine after an alleged incident with medical personnel prior to participating drills.

*So who stood out in the workouts?

Well, obviously, some guys chose to do most, if not all of the events, while some chose to do just one or two — which is perfectly fine. Prospects will also have a chance to either improve upon their Combine results — or establish new marks — at their respective pro days coming up in recent weeks, while others might have injury concerns that limit which workouts they can perform.

But, just looking at this list, Barnett finished fifth among defensive linemen in the 3-cone drill, McKinley finished third among defensive linemen in the 40-yard dash, Cook finished fourth among running backs in the bench press, while Lattimore finished third among cornerbacks in the 40-yard dash, third among corners in the vertical jump, and had the second best broad jump of any player at his position.*
