Roosevelt Nix isn't the only former member of the Kent State defense to sign as an undrafted free agent this year. Former Golden Flashes cornerback Darius Polk inked a deal with the Indianapolis Colts.

The 2013 second-team All-MAC corner was a key player in the Flashes secondary over the past two seasons, even earning the MAC Championship East MVP for his big game in a loss to NIU in 2012. He recorded 10 tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and recovered a fumble in that game.
The 5-foot-11, 189 pound corner isn't exceptionally fast (4.52 40), but there's no denying he was an effective corner at Kent State. In two seasons as a starting corner he totaled 118 tackles, and six interceptions.
Polk joins a pair of former MAC running backs, CMU's Zurlon Tipton and Buffalo's Bo Oliver, in Indianapolis as undrafted free agent signings.
