Some very unfortunate news is coming out of Mobile, Alabama at the Senior Bowl. Oklahoma Sooners cornerback Aaron Colvin came into this week as a likely Day 2 prospect, but was hoping to boost his stock with a solid week of practice and a good showing in Saturday’s game, and the Cincinnati Bengals were undoubtedly interested in watching him.

With a need at defensive back, Colvin was someone who the Bengals probably planned to scout and even interview in the coming moths, but that may be put on hold after Colvin was injured today.

It appears he tore his ACL today during a Senior Bowl practice, according to NFL Network Reporter Albert Breer:

 

 

 

He suffered the injury while in coverage during team drills, and he immediately went to the ground in pain and had to be helped off the field.

Colvin finished his career with five interceptions and 234 tackles while playing both cornerback and strong safety.


Colvin ended his collegiate career with six tackles in Oklahoma’s upset victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.

If the injury is indeed a torn ACL as it’s being reported, that means Colvin’s rookie year is already in jeopardy before he’s even drafted.
