Jaguars sign fourth-rounder Aaron Colvin

Cornerback Aaron Colvin is the third member of the Jaguars’ draft class to sign a contract with the team.

Unlike the others, signed or unsigned, Colvin may not wind up helping the Jaguars at all this season.

Colvin tore his ACL at the Senior Bowl, which likely knocked him down a bit in the draft but didn’t stop the Jaguars from drafting him and using his rookie season as a redshirt year if necessary. Colvin made two All-Big 12 teams while at Oklahoma and played both safety and corner at different times for the Sooners. He’s almost certainly going to start the season on the physically unable to perform list and may wind up missing the whole season as he recovers.

If he makes a full recovery, Colvin can be a versatile piece for coach Gus Bradley to use as he tries to build the Jaguars into a consistent winner over the next few years.

    Steal. Was supposed to be one of the top 3 corners taken. (Most had him 1 or 2)

    A great player. Looked awesome against Alabama (as did most of the defense). Red shirts his first year and will be a big time player for the Jaguars.

    Jags fans should really like this pick.

    This is some serious long-term vision for GM Dave Caldwell. This player was slated by many to go in the 2nd round before the Senior Bowl injury. In a year or two, he could be a starting CB and was snagged with a 4th round pick! Awesome!
