Aaron Colvin tears ACL during Senior Bowl practice

Considering our history with gimp blue chippers?! Just do it already. They 49ers have the luxury of not moving guys like this down their boards because of their depth and overall roster quality. Its pretty darn unique and its a nice problem to have. If we rate him a 2nd or 3rd rounder and the other teams drop him lower or off their boards we are currently in the position to trade back, pick up extra picks like we have been doing and still get the guy we had rated a 2nd/3rd rounder. They he gets his "redshirt" year like Lattimore, Tank, etc.

7th round pick?

That would be great.

With a comp pick? He's been a day 2 prospect all year, wouldn't be surprised if he is even undrafted now

Really? Most things I have seen are late 1st early 2nd, and he was getting rave reviews recently.

Yea going off of last year he was and likely 2nd rounder IMO but he played through injuries this year and I heard analysts say during games that he was a 3rd rounder if he really shaped it up. Then he tears his ACL, nfldraftscout has him as the 30th best CB, hopefully this is after the injury.

It's okay. We can draft him in the 4th-5th and let him rehab and learn the playbook and how to play d for the best team in the league. Silver linings...

4th or 5th? He was mid second to mid third, this might put him into the undrafted column completely. The 49ers could use one of their 5 trillion 7th rounders, red shirt him for a season and see what he's got afterwards.

From reports and a lot of you guys know better, but he seems to fit the 9ers CB style at 6' and is aggressive tackler who plays a lot of man D. Honestly can't see how the 9ers don't do this if he is available in the 7th round. The team is too stacked to keep 13 rookies and he could be this year's Marcus Cooper, who they won't have to cut since he will be on the IR.

Him and Spencer Long are two guys the 49ers could put on the shelf and let them recover for a whole season and wind up with two big steals. I wouldn't even be upset if the 49ers used a 6th round pick on him. Most of those picks don't pan out and anyways and if you can get premium level talent, even if you have to wait a year, then you do it, and thus have two less guys you have to worry about cutting or trading later on.
Sounds like a perfect pick for the Niners.

Actually he weighed in way smaller than listed, barely 5'11 and like 175lbs or something. But yes not taking him with one of our 7ths if he's there would be stupid

He would be a perfect late round stash for the 49ers. Good size and physical. They could draft a CB high and then draft him late.

Agree

use a 5th or 6th on a guy who will start in a couple years
Why not? Drafting him in say the 6th or 7th seems like a no brainer.

Colvin is rated by many as a 6th-7th round projection right now due to the injury. Before the injury, I was seeing a 3rd round grade. I would be perfectly fine taking him with a 6th, maybe a 5th.
