Depth. Depth. Depth. That's what the seventh round is all about. Aaron Colvin wouldn't be here had he been 100 percent healthy and may not even be here when draft day rolls around. However, in this mock draft, he was continually passed up because of the ACL injury suffered at the Senior Bowl.
The Falcons would be OK with him sitting for a season as the fourth cornerback and a special teams talent. In 2015, he'd have to compete for the nickelback role. That or he'll have to show enough in 2014 that the Falcons can just let Robert McClain walk after his restricted tender year.
The value here for Colvin would be exceptional, though. The seventh round is about finding guys who can be true steals. He has the potential to be a starting cornerback in the NFL if a team gives him a chance to earn the job. Getting him for depth would be a coup for the Falcons.
