Player News
05/12/2014 - Did the Jaguars reach or steal in the fourth round of the draft when they selected Aaron Colvin for defensive secondary help? It's a question that won't be answered for probably a year or two, depending what the former Oklahoma Sooner does in his first couple of years in the NFL. Colvin had been a highly regarded defensive back who had been projected as a possible second-round pick. That, however, was before suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in a Senior Bowl practice last January. The 5-foot-11, 186-pound Colvin had performed well prior to the injury. The Jaguars' coaching staff, on hand to coach the South roster, had been impressed with Colvin prior to the Jan. 21 injury.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley talked to Colvin at the NFL Scouting Combine a month later and told him the Jaguars still had a strong interest and if he was available at the right time, they would select him. That came about with the team's first of two selections in the fourth round. "This was always a plan to target him with our second fourth-round pick throughout the draft, barring the medical stuff would check out up to date, and to date it has been," Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell said. "He's on schedule with his rehab and our doctors feel good about it. ACLs nowadays are a situation that when they're fixed and they're fixed right, we should be good to go there." Caldwell did indicate that Colvin would likely start the season on physically unable to perform, meaning the Jaguars will be without him for at least the first six weeks of the season. - The Sports Xchange
