3 Jeff Okudah 1 Ohio St   6013 205 1

Combine: Forty: 4.48...Wing: 78.6...BP: 11...
VJ: 41.0... BJ: 135.0...3C: NA...20S: NA...60S: NA

Charlie Campbell - In 2019, Okudah was phenomenal in pass coverage to run the route and prevent separation. Nice combination of size, speed, athleticism and instincts. Importantly, his ball production was vastly improved over his 2018 season. Totaled 35 tackles with nine passes broken up and three interceptions on the year. Saw some brief action as a freshman, recording 17 tackles and a breakup before playing more as a sophomore. In 2018, he had 32 tackles with eight breakups. Has yet to record an interception, but has the skill-set with upside to develop in this area.

PFF - "Okudah has pretty much only shown out as a man corner at this point, but that’s where you’d like to see corners win. His blend of size, length and athleticism is rare at the position."

Lindy's - "Rates among the best QB prospects in the past decade.....elite athleticism immediately jumps off the tape...Light feet and loose hips...Expected to be one of the fastest players in the draft...aggressive at POA...Possesses the football IQ to handle zone coverages and late switch-ons showing the route anticipation and gambling mentality to drop his primary assignment and make plays on the ball...Does not back down from the challenge of bigger receivers... aggressive nature in coverage will draw an occasional penalty......shows explosive leaping ability and good timing to challenge at the highest point...Won't wow you with his physicality...a bit of a duck and swipe tackler...Comp: Darrius Slay..."

McShay - "...Okudah has the size, versatility, quickness and athleticism to be a No. 1 corner in the NFL. ..."

Kristian Fulton
7 LSU   5116 197 1

Combine: Forty: 4.46...Wing: 71.8...BP: NA
VJ: 35.5... BJ: 123.0...3C: 6.94...20S: 4.36...60S: NA

Charlie Campbell - One of the top recruits in the nation coming out of high school in 2016. Has excellent size to go along with speed and cover skills. He has a ton of upside and could be one of the top cornerbacks in college football in 2019. Served as a backup as a freshman before being suspended for the 2017 season by the NCAA after using another player's urine for a drug test. Hailing from one of the best schools for defensive back talent, he was impressive in coverage during the 2018 season despite not putting together a big stat line. Had 17 tackles with one forced fumble, one interception and seven passes broken up on the year. Could be even better in 2019 now that he has more experience. Had 32 tackles with 13 passes defensed and an interception in 2019. Had a mixed game against Texas with some nice plays, but also gave up a touchdown and was flagged by pass interference. Good at running with receivers and preventing separation, but he needs to improve his discipline and also could stand to do a better job of defending the ball on 50-50 plays. His Texas tape looks more like something out of a second-day pick rather than a true first-rounder. Sources from three different teams said they had Fulton graded in the second round, but they wouldn't be surprised if he was a late first-round pick.

Lindy's - "Lack of picks during his career is mitigated by the fact that he simply did not get many opportunities as QB's generally avoided his side of the field...Classic cover corner with springs in his legs...can turn and run with yhe swiftest of receivers...Composed and confident when lined up in press coverage...Good size to handle bigger receivers...does not back down from a physical challenge...good but not elite size...average tackler - More of an ankle swiper, jersey grabber than hitter...Does occasionally misstime his leaps in jump ball situations....Suspended for 2017 season for attempting to use someone else's urinw for a PED test...Comp: Marcus Peters...

PFF - "Fulton graded better than his teammate Greedy Williams on the LSU defense last season. He’s as sticky in man coverage as any defensive back in the country and is a complete corner."

16 CJ Henderson 2 Florida   6008 204 1

Combine: Forty: 4.39...Wing: 75.8...BP: 20.
VJ: 37.5...
BJ: 127.0...3C: NA...20S: NA...60S: NA
4th fastest CB in forty...8th best BP...Tied for 9th in VJ and 15th in BJ.

Charlie Campbell - Really impressive as a freshman, displaying excellent coverage skills with ball skills. He totaled four interceptions with four passes broken up and 22 tackles that season. Had 11 passes broken up and 33 tackles in 2019. Some team sources say Henderson reminds them of Marcus Peters. Covered well against Miami and Auburn, showing natural ability to run with receivers and prevent separation. However, his tackling was terrible and is a big negative with team evaluators. Missed games against Kentucky, Tennessee and Towson with a leg injury. Since coming back from the injury, Henderson had poor performances against LSU and Georgia. Has been playing soft coverage, allowing a number of receptions and not being as aggressive with his technique in past seasons. (He might be protecting himself and trying not to get hurt, but he's producing some disappointing tape for pro evaluators). Sources say he still could end up going in the first round because of his rare combination of size, speed, and ability to run the route to prevent separation.

Lindy's - "Long levered, highly athletic cover corner...Prototypical height, arm length, quickness, agility and accelleration....At his best locked up in one-on-one coverage...shows light feet and good knee bend...Good length and strength for the jam...can run with the speediest of receivers...Terrific balance and accelleration...Trustworthy tackler but very willing to let his teammates do trhe dirty mop-up work...Failed to record an interception in 2019...Comp: Joe Haden..."

PFF - "Henderson locked down his side of the field last year as well as any corner in the country. He’s above average in pretty much every aspect of the position you could ask for."

McShay - "...Henderson broke up 11 passes for Florida this past season, ..."

USA Today - Forty and agility drills should confirm his first-rate closing aspeed and quickness... 545 lb squat and 380 BP scores should validate unexpected power...

60 Bryce Hall 8 Virginia   6015 202 1

Combine: Forty: NA...Wing: 78.5...BP: 11
VJ: NA... BJ: NA...3C: NA...20S: NA...60S: NA

Charlie Campbell - A big, physical and aggressive corner, but has some limitations for the NFL. Had gotten some media hype heading into his senior year, (and that is understandable as he led the nation in passes broken up in 2018 with 24).Also totaled 62 tackles, two forced fumbles and two interceptions...In his sophomore campaign, he had 47 tackles with one interception and one forced fumble. Pro evaluators will want to see Hall turn more passes-defensed into interceptions and will question why teams were throwing at him so much. Totaled 20 tackles with four passes broken up in his injury-shortened 2019 season.Really struggled with the quick-twitch suddenness of Florida State wide receiver Tamorrion Terry, with the big wideout consistently generating separation coming out of breaks. Looks stiff-hipped and not that twitchy. Only a good fit for a press-man scheme and could play some in a zone scheme. There are concerns about Hall's speed and athleticism matching up against NFL receivers. On top of that, he suffered an injured ankle and was out for the season.

Lindy's - "Experienced in a variety of coverage techniques...locates the ball quickly and shows no panic timing his leap and snaking his long arms into those of the intended receiver...Savvy defender who uses his length and route anticipation to choke passing angles...High character player...Only average twitch and straight-line speed...A bit reliant on reading and rerouting receivers...lacks the wheels to recover if his instincts are wrong..While generally a reliable tackler, will duck his head on impact on occasion and fail to wrap securely....Comp: Ahkello Witherspoon..."

PFF - "Hall has incredible ball skills that saw him be the top graded returning corner in the country last year. Press Cover-3 teams are going to love his skillset.

USA Today - Broken leg and dislocated anklemight rule out key Combine workouts...Medical diagnostics may go a long way toward determining whether he stays up around a Day 2 grade or whether he drops.

39 Trevon Diggs 3 Alabama   6015 205 1

Combine: Forty: NA...Wing: 78.5....BP: NA
VJ: NA...BJ: NA...3C: NA...20S: NA...60S: NA

Charlie Campbell - Possesses excellent speed and athleticism for size. Altogether, he looks to have huge upside for the NFL. In 2019, Diggs had 37 tackles, three interceptions and eight passes defended. He was a solid cover corner for Alabama. Has some rawness to him. That's understandable given his injury history and playing WR early on at Alabama. Diggs has above-average instincts but not natural. He's late getting his head around to track the ball in flight and bites on double moves. Still, he's big and can run so he projects to being a starting corner on the outside. Took his game to another level in 2018 before going down with a foot injury that ended his season. Had flashed in 2017, but he still was developing at cornerback after starting his career playing both offense and defense..In 2018, Diggs totaled 20 tackles with six passes broken up, one forced fumble and one interception, but he was also blanketing receivers. (Note - As a freshman wide receiver, Diggs had 11 receptions for 88 yards and a touchdown. He moved to CB in his sophomore year and totaled 13 tackles with five breakups and an interception. Was buried on the depth chart behind Anthony Averett, Levi Wallace and Tony Brown that year).. Also brings added value as a punt and kick returner.

Lindy's - Considered one of Alabmas's top overall athletes...Impressive ball skills, vision and athletitism make him a threat to turn turnovers into TDs...Looks the part of a modern press corner...has loose hips to turn and go with receivers...able to punch or harass receivers at the snap to disrupt timing...Generally reliable tackler whose long arms aid him greatly in tripping up ball carriers...Ascending talent whose best football is ahead of him...Inexperience shows at times...Focuses too much at times on receivers adjusting to the ball rather than turning toward the action...Broken foot in 2018...Comp: Xavier Rhodes..."

67 AJ Terrell 9 Clemson   6012 195 1

Combine: Forty: 4.42...Wing: 75.6...BP: 15.
VJ: 34.5...BJ: 129.0...3C: NA...20S: NA...60S: NA

Charlie Campbell - Terrell has a good skill set and showed a lot of upside in his first season as a starter in 2018. ...Has been solid but unspectacular As a sophomore, he helped Clemson win a National Championship as the other starting outside corner opposite Trayvon Mullen. Terrell produced well for the Tigers in 2018 with 54 tackles, three passes broken up and three interceptions. Also flashed as a freshman backup with an interception and seven breakups. Terrell has a lot of talent and could rise over the coming season.

Lindy's - Five star recruit out of Georgia...Far from "just" a cover corner...Built and moves like a point guard...Long gangly frame with eye-popping natural athleticisim...At his best in press-man coverage...Possesses the straight line speed to cover receivers deep and shows good route awareness....Gets his head around when the ball is in the air...Physical in run support...Can be a bit sticky coming out of his breaks...A bit robotic in zone coverage...isn't as qiuick to close dowwnhill on underneath routes...surrenders inside releases too easily, trusting his make-up speed and length to slap away quick slants. Comp: Xavier Rhodes..."

127 Lamar Jackson 10 Nebraska   6020 208 2

Combine: Forty: 4.58...Wing: 77.8....BP: 10
VJ: 36.5...BJ: 122.0...3C: NA...20S: NA...60S: NA

Charlie Campbell - As a senior, Jackson totaled 40 tackles with three interceptions, one sack, two forced fumbles and 12 passes defended. In 2018, he had 28 stops with two picks ands seven breakups. Jackson is a big cornerback who is a good athlete, but he is soft versus the run and not really a playmaker in coverage. Given his soft play, he isn't a candidate to move to safety - only fit might come as a press-man corner in a Seahawks-style scheme.

Lindy's - Generated buzz at the Senior Bowl with his length and improved ball skills...Long levered press corner with the height, arm length, physicality and awareness of the ball in flight to project as an NFL starter...Good speed to handle outside duties deep downfield....Accomplished blitzer...lacks elite fluidity...too often arrives late, surrendering easy receptions...Comp: Ahkello Witherspoon...""

x Paulson Adebo 15 Stanford   6010 190 2

Not on Combine List

Charlie Campbell - A big corner who has cover skills and a tremendous ability to play the ball. He also has good instincts and superb technique. Has the size to match up with big wideouts plus the speed to carry verticals. In the 2019 season opener, Adebo picked up where he left off in 2018, collecting five tackles with two passes batted and an interception against Northwestern. However, he had an ugly game against Central Florida, getting roasted on some double moves. An aggressive corner who will have to learn to play with more discipline. Had a bounce-back game against Washington with four breakups. In 2019, he had 33 tackles with four interceptions and 10 passes broken up. Was held out against Notre Dame, Washington State, and California with an undisclosed injury. In 2018, Adebo totaled 64 tackles with 20 passes broken up and four interceptions.Lindy's -

PFF - "Adebo has ball skills like that of a wide receiver. He’s more likely to come down with jump down the field than the receiver he’s guarding. His stiffness likely limits him scheme and versatility wise, though."

41 Cameron Dantzler 4 Mississippi St   6023 198 3

Combine: Forty: 4.64...Wing: 72.4...BP: NA
VJ: 34.5...BJ: NA...3C: NA...20S: NA...60S: NA

Lindy's - "Very good size that jumps off the screen...Can match up well with bigger receivers...Plays a lot of off-coverage, which may give him some position-versatility...Footwork can be a struggle at times...Good player with the ball in the air, but needs to focus on finishing...struggles to rush with power....Comp: Josh Jackson..."...

Charlie Campbell - In 2019, Dantzler recorded 40 tackles with two interceptions, eight passes broken up, one forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He is a solid corner who is big and physical, but his speed and athleticism make him more of a second-day prospect. ...Team sources have said that Dantzler was a player who jumped out at them in 2018 despite them not watching him closely because he was yet to be draft eligible. The sophomore totaled 43 tackles with nine passes broken up and two interceptions for 2018. Dantzler has good size, and the questions will be how well he runs and if he is fluid enough to maintain coverage and prevent separation.

44 Harrison Hand 5 Temple   5112 197 3

Combine: Forty: 4.31*...Wing: 76.4...BP: 14
VJ: 41.0...BJ: 133.0....3C: 7.15...20S: 4.27 ...60S: NA

*Discrepancy between Feldman's reported 4.31 Combine forty time and nflcom's 4.53.

Lindy's - "NJ native who followed his college coach to Baylor and then Temple...Looks and plays bigger than his listed size...Sets the tone with a highly physical brand of FB...could lead some to project him at safety...Among players listed on Bruce Feldman's annual Freaks list with a 40 VJ and 4.31 forty...Once established at Baylor, opponents rarely challenged him on deep throws....appeared most comfortable in zone coverage...is one of the fiercest hitters at his position in the draft...Plays fast due to his awareness and confidence...Seems more interested in physically intimidating receivers than he does stealing the ball... Comp: Eric Rowe..."

Combine: Forty: 4.48...Wing: 75.2...BP: 15
VJ: 37.0...
BJ: 128.0...3C: NA...20S: NA...60S: NA

Lindy's - Four star wide receiver who was asked in 2018 to switch to CB...Compact and competitive with springs for his feet and swivel hips...An exciting talent who seems to be just scratching the surface of his potential...At his best in the face of the receiver in press-man...Has such bounce in his legs that he rarely bothers with extending an arm to jam receivers....Some positional versatility...Has short, stubby frame....One of those eleite athletes who may have never switched to CB if he had shown more consistency...Comp: Chidobe Awuzie..."

McShay - "...Igbinoghene might not have had any picks of his own this past season, but he's instinctive and fast..."

51 Tony Pride Jr 6 Notre Dame   5115 193 x

VJ: 35.5...BJ: 119.0...3C: 6.94...20S: 4.26...60S: NA

Lindy's - "Looked phenominal at the Senior Bowl with his ability to stay in the play while trailing receivers...Not the strongest guy, but knows when to bring his hands into the mix...Accurate and consisistent tackler...Doesn't aalways move like he's supposed to ....Undersized...may be relegated to playing inside...size does lead to some missed tackles, but it's not due to lack of effort...Poor ball tracker...Comp: Devin McCourty..."

USA Today - Flew under most radar screens until Senior Bowl week where he "flustered" most opponents. Write-up suggests more of a technician than lights-out size, speed and ball skills.
