Former UConn football offensive lineman Ryan Van Demark signed with the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent on Saturday night, per his agent.
The offensive tackle’s deal included $175,000 of guaranteed money.
Van Demark has good measurables at 6-foot-7, and moved onto draft boards after a good pro day. He played 36 games in a UConn uniform over his four years on campus, making nine starts as a freshman in 2017 and failing to miss a start in the three remaining years of his career.
The significant signing bonus suggests that Van Demark has a good chance making the roster, if not the practice squad. He’ll have plenty of competition in camp after the Colts drafted offensive tackle Bernhard Raimann in the third round.
