  1. Iman Marshall, CB, USC
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.53.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-2.

    8/22/17: The talented Marshall became a starter as a freshman with an impressive debut in 2015. He had 67 tackles with eight passes broken up and three interceptions, including a two-interception game victimizing UCLA star quarterback Josh Rosen for those picks. Marshall stayed consistent as a sophomore with eight breakups, three interceptions and 51 tackles.

    Marshall's pass coverage is a very good fit for the NFL. He has the size to battle big receivers and the ability to play a variety of techniques. Marshall has played a lot of press-man coverage and shows the skill to turn and run with receivers. He also has played off-man and zone coverage, showing nice flexibility with quick feet to be smooth in off-man situations. Marshall plays the ball extremely well and is adept to defend the 50-50 jump balls and back-shoulder throws that are en vogue in the NFL. Marshall also is an aggressive, hard-hitting run defender. He looks like a first-round prospect who should be a future NFL starter and a potential No. 1 corner for a pro defense.


  2. Kevin Toliver II, CB, LSU
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 193.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-2.

    8/22/17: Toliver impressed as a freshman and sophomore. Considering the amount of talent the Tigers' secondary has produced, it is a serious statement that he played immediately at LSU. In 2015, Toliver had 35 tackles with five breakups and an interception. As a sophomore, he totaled 21 tackles with one breakup across seven games.

    The 6-foot-2, 193-pounder is a big corner who can run. Team sources have said Toliver has a first-round skill set.






  3. Tarvarus McFadden, CB, Florida State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 198.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-2.

    8/22/17: McFadden was up and down in 2016, but he has a ton of talent to grow into a better player. He looked great at times last year, but other times, he seemed lost and gave up some big plays. McFadden still tied for the nation's lead in interceptions with eight in 2016, but part of that total was teams were picking on him and throwing the ball a lot in his direction. He also recorded 20 tackles and six passes broken up.

    McFadden has great size, but he also has some limitations. McFadden should fit best as a press-man corner in a Seahawks-style defense.


  4. Adonis Alexander, CB, Virginia Tech
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 193.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-2.

    8/22/17: In 2016, Alexander recorded 44 tackles with seven passes broken up and two interceptions. He was extremely impressive as a freshman with 55 tackles, four interceptions and six passes broken up. Alexander has a lot of size and length to battle big receivers.


  5. Jaire Alexander, CB, Louisville
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 188.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.42.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-3.

    8/22/17: Alexander was very good for Louisville in 2016, racking up 39 tackles with nine passes broken up and five interceptions. He also was a dangerous punt returner. There is a lot of upside for Alexander to develop.




  6. Chauncey Gardner Jr.*, CB, Florida
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 207.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-3.



  7. Carlton Davis, CB, Auburn
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 195.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.53.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-3.





  8. Quenton Meeks, CB, Stanford
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 195.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.53.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-4.
