Nate Hairston was drafted in the fifth round – as the 158th pick overall in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts.

The 6’3”, 195 lb. Hairston, a cornerback, from Temple University has the capacity to make great defensive plays for the Colts as evidenced by his stats thus far after three games: eight solo tackles and one sack.

During two of his four at seasons at Temple, Hairston played on the offensive side of the ball as well. He played wide receiver and showed some success with 20 receptions for 150 yards. On the defensive side of the ball he had 40 tackles (31 solo) and six passes defensed and two interceptions during his four-season college career.

Hairston’s favorite athlete outside of football is LeBron James and the one thing Nate can’t live without is “football”. I’m thinking we will be very glad is loves football because at this pace this rookie is on pace to show us why the Colts drafted him.

One question I’d like to know is “Nate: can you be more specific about liking to ride bikes with pedals and all?” Define all please.
