Sixth Round: Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma
This is one of those picks that is geared towards the future. Colvin tore his ACL early this year during Senior Bowl practices, but before then he was considered a potential early round prospect. He certainly wouldn’t be able to contribute much if anything in 2014, but standing at 6’0, he is the type of tall, lanky corner that fits the mold of what Bradley likes in a defensive back. Getting a potential future starter in the sixth, even coming off injury, is hard to find.

Jerick McKinnon, RB, Georgia Southern
This is a pick based purely on athletic ability and college production. You never want to become a “box score scout” who looks at the numbers only, but there is no denying what McKinnon was able to do at Georgia Southern. He finished 3rd all time on the school’s career rushing list with 3,899 yards and tied for 6th all time with 42 career rushing TDs.
At the combine, McKinnon ran a 4.41 40 yard dash and put up an impressive 32 reps on the bench press. Combine that with a 40.5 inch vertical, and McKinnon is looking like a pretty good selection in the 6th round.
