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 San Francisco 49ers are a team that has the luxury of having a stacked roster and an abundance of draft picks in the 2014 NFL Draft. This is similar to last year when they packaged picks to move up and grab some players that they targeted. Another thing that the San Francisco 49ers did was utilize a different draft strategy that I can the draft and stash strategy. This involves...

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Pierre Desir long ago became resigned to the likelihood that his lifelong NFL dream might not come true.
The 6-foot-1, 198-pound cornerback had greater responsibilities than impressing a bunch of football scouts. He worked his way through a growing Division II college in St. Charles, Mo. With no athletic scholarship, he supported a wife and two children by devoting...

Oklahoma Sooners (10-2) vs. Alabama Crimson Tide (11-1)
Thursday, Jan. 2, 8:30 p.m. EST, ESPN
Line: Alabama by 14.5
How Oklahoma got here: It wasn’t always easy, but the Sooners did what it took early in the season and looked good at 5-0. Then a shocking 36-20 loss to rival Texas made everyone take another look at Boob Stoops’ squad. OU rebounded to win five of its final...
Oklahoma State's loss to West Virginia just appears more inexplicable in retrospect. And it was bad enough at the time that the Cowboys' Big 12 title hopes appeared over.
But the No. 6 Cowboys (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) responded by winning seven straight, including a dominant 49-17 blowout over then-No. 3 Baylor Nov. 23, and now have just one more obstacle to overcome before claiming their...

But Colvin doesn't regret - not for a second...
