As a senior, in football, he was a first-team All-State pick, an All Marion County Player, an All-Metro player and the Indianapolis News Defensive Player of the Year after having a school-record 219 tackles (126 solo tackles, 93 assisted tackles).

Colvin played at Purdue University. He worked at a concession stand at the RCA Dome in Indianapolis before the Chicago Bears selected him in the fourth round of the 1999 NFL draft. After playing for the Bears, Colvin was picked up by the New England Patriots, where he is presently a starting linebacker. Early in his first season with New England, Colvin suffered a career-threatening injury: a shattered socket in his right hip. It took Colvin a year to recover, while the Patriots won back-to-back Super Bowls. Colvin finally started again in 2005, and in 2006, he was a full-time starter at outside linebacker for the Patriots. He was placed on injured reserve by the Patriots on November 27, 2007.
