Aaron Colvin is prospect for the future, not the present

Oklahoma CB Aaron Colvin

Oklahoma CB Aaron Colvin

INDIANAPOLIS–Talk isn’t cheap for Aaron Colvin. It’s his only reason for attending the scouting combine.

The Oklahoma cornerback sustained a torn ACL at the Senior Bowl that canceled Colvin’s plans for proving he was worthy of a first-round draft pick.

“It was simple one-on-ones. The receiver was running a dig route. I heard a pop,” Colvin said of the injury.

“I felt like I was a first-round corner. I still feel like I’m a first-round corner,” he said.

Colvin is absolutely not a first-round corner now. The injury guarantees as much.  The issue now is how far will Colvin fall? Will he be drafted at all?

“I do feel I’m worth the wait. I feel like I’m going to come back faster than anybody expects,” Colvin said.

The team that picks Colvin will be picking him as a futures player. Three weeks out of knee surgery, Colvin can’t do anything more this weekend than interview with interested teams. Colvin said he has an interview scheduled with the Chargers.

“I wanted to go (to the Senior Bowl) to prove I’m a first-round corner. I felt like I was doing that,” he said.

Now Colvin wants to convince someone he’s worth the wait.

    not even mid-to-late rounds? that seems like it would be a mistake!

    i watched him at Oklahoma a great cover corner and a great pick in the 5th-6th round would be one of the best choices you could make

    When it comes to trying to figure T.T . future draft picks you all are just peeing in the wind. I have to admit it is fun to watch.

    Ask yourself this: Would you trade a current 5th or 6th round pick for a 1st round pick next year? Or even for a 2nd round pick? If you feel he will recover fully and has 1st round talent, then that is the question you are asking.

    Seems like a great late round investment for the future. Most rookies aren’t going to pay off in year 1 anyway. I would like to see the Packers pick up a player with high round talent in the later rounds. Also, can’t have too many good corners
