Jacksonville Jaguars rookie cornerback Aaron Colvin only started his NFL career a few weeks ago, but he's turned in back-to-back positive performances against the New York Giants and Houston Texans that have ranked him in the top 10 of cornerbacks.

According to Pro Football Focus, Colvin struggled in his first game against the Indianapolis Colts, but rebounded the past two games for a combined overall grade of +3.7, which ties him for 10th with Buffalo Bills cornerback Corey Graham. That puts him ahead of the likes of Dallas Cowboys cornerback Sterling Moore and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Byron Maxwell.

In the last two weeks, Colvin has showed balance in his game, allowing just seven receptions for 23 yards to opposing receivers, while also making five solo tackles. Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley made a point to say after the Giants game that Colvin is making a remarkable amount of plays for the nickelback position he's being put into.

Let's see what Colvin can do against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
