The Jacksonville Jaguars will activate rookie corner Aaron Colvin this week, the team announced on Tuesday. Colvin has been on the Jaguars reserve/non-football injury list because he had a knee injury when the team drafted him. Coincidentally, Colvin injured his knee in the Senior Bowl as a member of the team that the Jaguars coached.

At 6', 186 pounds, Colvin is far from a huge cornerback, but he does have the type of length that Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley covets. He will likely fit in well as a press-type cornerback who thrives in the style of defense that Jacksonville is still in the process of implementing.

It's more likely however that Colvin begins inside at the nickel corner position, especially with Will Blackmon out for the season. This means that when the Jaguars return from the bye week to face the Indianapolis Colts, Colvin could be at the nickel spot instead of Sherrod Martin, a safety, manning the role.
