JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A month after cornerback Aaron Colvin tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley pulled him the aside at the NFL combine and said, ''We still love you. I'm going to come get you. You can bank on that.''
Colvin forgot about the conversation - until the Jaguars called and selected him in the fourth round of the NFL draft Saturday.
Jacksonville used the 114th overall selection on Colvin, who had been projected as a first- or second-round pick before his knee injury in January.
Colvin blew out his knee during the second day of Senior Bowl practice. Bradley and the Jaguars coached the former Oklahoma standout for the South team and had seen enough to keep him on the radar for five months.
