With the 114th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars selected Aaron Colvin out of the University of Oklahoma.
After aggressively addressing the offensive side of the ball in rounds 1,2 and 3 on Thursday and Friday, general manager David Caldwell went ahead and switched to the defensive side of the ball. Despite selecting 5 defensive backs in the 2013 NFL Draft, Caldwell couldn’t pass up the potential of a guy like Aaron Colvin.
If not for a torn ACL at the Senior Bowl, Aaron Colvin likely would have come off the board much earlier than here in the 4th round. Completely a “value” pick, Colvin likely won’t have much of an impact early in the season. When he does get healthy, he probably will come in and play in the slot with Alan Ball and Dwayne Gratz on the outside.
If Colvin can get healthy and back to his form from before the Senior Bowl, he could be a key piece of the secondary for years to come.
