Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni gushed about rookie wide receiver Deon Cain on Wednesday.
“Deon is built like you want a wide receiver to be built. He runs how you want a wide receiver to run. What’s impressive about him is he can really get out of breaks. To me, that’s what separates really good receivers in this league. He can separate at the top, which combined with the other two things I said, can really make him a person that we think can develop.”
T.Y. Hilton is a lock as the team's top wide receiver, but the second spot is wide open in a passing game that looks even more appealing with Andrew Luck on the mend. The sixth-rounder Cain will compete with veterans Chester Rogers and Ryan Grant, as well as fellow rookie Daurice Fountain (fifth round).
