CORNER BACKS

1) Justin Gilbert, OK State

I don't like to buy into combine performances, but Justin Gilbert's was amazing. He was quick, his hips were fluid in drills, and he just looked the part. I wish he would play a little meaner, but he is the cleanest corner prospect in the draft.

2) Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State

I don't love this draft class, but I do like Dennard. He can be overly aggressive, and can only be drafted as a press corner, but he's a good one.


3) Bradley Roby, OSU

I think it really falls off at this point. Roby is a fine corner, but he would be a 3rd round pick in some other drafts.

4) Jason Verrett, TCU

He's short. That's about the only flaw in his game.

5) Kyle Fuller, VT



Safety

1) Ha Ha Clinton Dix, Alabama

Clinton-Dix has become the best safety in the class by default. He is the best coverage safety in the draft, and could do some major good for a team.

1B) Calvin Pryor, Louisville

Don't be surprised if Pryor goes in the top-10. He is a hard hitting safety that has a nose for the ball, and he fits the Seattle DB style.

3) Deone Bucannon, Washington State

If Bucannon was a stronger tackler then he would be a 1st round pick. He is a hard hitter with good size, and can play very well in pass support, but will miss some tackles in run support.

4) Jimmie Ward, NIU

Ward missed out on the combine which could hurt his stock. He isn't elite in any aspect, but he has shown the ability to blanket defenses.
