Draft Analysis:

Colbert posted strong pro day numbers, including a pair of 4.40-second 40-yard dashes. He will have a shot at earning a special teams role in camp. --Mark Dulgerian

  • 6'0" Height
  • 200LBS. Weight



Impressed scouts with two 4.40-second 40-yard dashes at his pro day. Good combination of size and speed. May get a shot as a cornerback on the next level due to his physical traits. Was a core special teams talent while at University of Texas previously and has plenty of special teams tackles to his name.


Might not offer enough value as a defensive back to warrant a roster spot. Has registered very few starts at either Texas or Miami. When he’s played, has an alarming amount of missed tackles because he fails to gather his weight and center his targets. Needs to improve his overall strength.

Bottom Line

Issues as a tackler could plague his attempt to make the pros as a core special teams talent. Has the size and speed to interest defensive backs coaches, but his lack of starting experience and production may foreshadow his inability to contribute in coverage if he were to be called on. Colbert will have to make a roster based on his ability to shine on special teams.
