Before Colvin's injury, ESPN NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. ranked Colvin as the fourth-best cornerback coming out on the 2014 NFL Draft. According to one NFL scout, it is hard to find good cornerbacks in the NFL Draft and he is certain one team will take him. That same scout said he would be angry if he team doesn't take him if given the chance.

After the injury, Aaron Colvin said he was crushed. He said he didn't know what happened, and now all he could think about was his lifelong dream to play ball. He also said he was tired of his family always struggling and wanted to make good for them.

According to defensive backs' coach Clayton Lopez, Colvin looked like the best cornerback at the 2014 Senior Bowl.

Aaron Colvin seemed to be more positive later that night, when he took to Twitter. Colvin sent out a message to his friends by saying that he could an "unfortunate break" but he is certain there must be a good reason for it. He said he will work hard to come back and told people to mark his words, he would be the most dominant defensive back in the NFL.

From the sound of it, an NFL team will draft him for the future, and from the sounds of it, Aaron Colvin has something to prove.
