Report: Redskins Host Arjen Colquhoun For A Visit


The Washington Redskins continued their draft process of hosting prospects, as the team had Michigan State cornerback Arjen Colquhoun in for a visit.

The Washington Redskins on Tuesday hosted 2016 NFL Draft prospect Arjen Colquhoun for a visit according to ESPN’s John Keim.

Colquhoun, a cornerback out of Michigan State, was the second reported visitor for the Redskins on Tuesday, as Keim also tweeted that the Redskins had Eastern Kentucky pass rusher Noah Spence in for a visit.

In four seasons with the Spartans, Colquhoun appeared in 40 games, racking up 62 tackles with 15 passes defensed and three interceptions.

After redshirting the 2011 season, Colquhoun received his first collegiate action in 2012, appearing in five games.

As a sophomore in 2013, he was a key special teams contributor while providing depth at both cornerback and safety, tallying five tackles in 10 games.

During the 2014 season, the Windsor, Ontario, native appeared in 11 games, totaling 12 tackles and his first career interception against Rutgers.

In a Cotton Bowl Classic victory over then-No. 4 Baylor, Colquhoun recorded three tackles.

Colquhoun's best production came as a senior in 2015, as he appeared in 11 games with four starts, totaling 45 tackles while finishing seventh in the Big Ten Conference in pass breakups with 10.

The 6-foot-1, 202 pounder would nab two interceptions during the season, too.

During Michigan State's pro day last month, Colquhoun reportedly ran the 40-yard dash in 4.57 seconds while also recording a 37-inch vertical leap and a 121-inch broad jump.

The Redskins could be seeking to add young quality depth and production to their cornerbacks group.

While the team already has Will Blackmon, Bashaud Breeland, Chris Culliver and Quinton Dunbar under contract among others, the draft remains an option to bulk up the position.

The team is also reportedly hosting veteran cornerback Greg Toler for a visiting on Wednesday.
