PLAYER PROFILE: The Indianapolis Colts have been impressed with second-round WR Parris Campbell’s speed and versatility.
Colts HC Frank Reich had this to say regarding Campbell’s potential: “(Campbell) has got this football aptitude. He understands it. Sometimes you explain something to somebody and you know how when you explain it, they just get it and you can tell that they get it? He is that guy. You just see how easy he adapts on the field to little coaching points. He can run all the routes. He has got to develop. He has got a ways to go but I just think he can play every (wide receiver) position on the field and make big plays from all over the field, but that is going to be a process. That is going to be a process. It is going to take time. I am sure with his athleticism and how smart he is, he is going to show flashes. But we just have to – Nick (Sirianni) and I and everybody else – make sure that we just bring him along at the right pace, let him shine, let him learn and grow and then just gradually work him in,” Reich said.
Colts area scout Chad Henry said Campbell’s speed jumped out to him during the pre-draft process: “With apologies to my mother, kids and pastor, basically, it was this guy was really ‘bleep, bleep, bleep, bleep, bleep fast. The very end of my e-mail was, ‘We have to get this guy on our team,” Henry said via 1070TheFan’s Kevin Bowen. “His run after catch is exceptional. He’s a high school running back and you see that. He’s really natural with the ball in his hands. There’s some plays that you turn on over the last two years and it’s like, ‘Holy cow.’ The key thing for us was his speed and you can really feel it,” Henry said.
