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.
