  1. Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 201. Arm: 30.88. Hand: 8.63.
    40 Time: 4.64.
    Projected Round (2020): 1-2.

    4/22/20: Late in the process, McKinney slid after a disappointing combine with a slow 40 time. He also is undersized, so there are concerns about him holding up in the NFL. Aside from that, McKinney is the top consensus safety across the league. He probably will get selected late in the first round, but he has an outside chance of slipping into the early second round.

    McKinney had 95 tackles with three interceptions, three sacks, five passes defended and four forced fumbles in 2019. He was a steady and good safety for Alabama, displaying his versatility. McKinney showed the ability to be a jack-of-all-trades in the secondary, as he is able to contribute in man coverage on tight ends and wide receivers, can play deep zone free safety, also has the strength to tackle and can be the eighth man in the box. McKinney has size, speed, athleticism and upside for the NFL.

    6/22/19: McKinney broke out in 2018 as Alabama's best defensive back. He totaled 73 tackles with 10 breakups, two interceptions and one forced fumble on the year. McKinney played strong safety in 2018, but he is versatile and could play more free safety in 2019 with Deionte Thompson in the NFL.




  2. Kyle Dugger, S, Lenoir-Rhyne
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 217. Arm: 32.75. Hand: 10.13.
    40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-3.

    4/22/20: Teams have Dugger as a consensus second-day pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Team sources say Dugger has a great skill set as he is big, fast and athletic. That superb skill set was given proof at the combine, where Dugger was excellent.

    Dugger put his name on the map in 2019, with high-level scouts like directors of college scouting going to watch him. On the year, he totaled 31 tackles with two interceptions and four passes broken up. His best fit would be as a strong safety in the NFL.

    6/22/19: Dugger is a small-school prospect who made it onto NFL teams' preseason watch list. He has a skill set with some size and quickness for the next level. In 2018, Dugger totaled 76 tackles with 13 passes defended and three interceptions. He had 87 tackles with seven breakups and an interception in 2017 over 10 games. Going to a top all-star game and performing well there is important for Dugger's draft grade.


  3. Jeremy Chinn, S, Southern Illinois
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 219. Arm: 32. Hand: 9.5.
    40 Time: 4.45.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-3.

    4/22/20: Chinn totaled 71 tackles, four interceptions and three passes broken up in 2019. He had a solid week at the Senior Bowl and interviewed well with teams. Chinn then had a superb combine to help his draft stock. Teams feel Chinn could be a riser during the process, because he could likely serve as a hybrid linebacker and safety who is used in a variety of ways.

    6/22/19: Chinn totaled 55 tackles with three interceptions, two forced fumbles and seven passes defended in 2018. He had 66 and 51 tackles during the previous two seasons, respectively. In all three seasons of his college career, Chinn recorded three interceptions. His steady play earned him a spot on NFL teams' preseason watch list, with some teams projecting him as having potential to the back half of the 2020 NFL Draft.


  4. Grant Delpit*, S, LSU
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 213. Arm: 30.38. Hand: 9.13.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-3.

    4/22/20: In 2019, Delpit recorded 59 tackles, two interceptions, one sack and seven passes broken up. He did not play as well as a junior as he did as in 2018, with some missed tackles and some issues in pass coverage. LSU used him in a variety of ways, having played coverage downfield as a single high free safety, having displayed man-coverage skills on tight ends, and having served as an eighth man in the box. For the NFL, Delpit would probably be best continuing to gain weight and be a strong safety. He definitely has to improve his tackling for that role.

    6/22/19: Delpit was a very productive for LSU in 2018, collecting 74 tackles, 9.5 tackle for a loss, five sacks, nine passes batted and five interceptions. The 6-foot-3, 208-pounder has excellent instincts to go along with a good combination of size and speed. As a freshman, Delpit totaled 60 tackles with eight passes broken up and an interception.




  5. Antoine Winfield, S, Minnesota
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 203. Arm: 30.13. Hand: 9.5.
    40 Time: 4.45.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-3.

    4/22/20: Winfield was a ballhawk for the Gophers in 2019, totaling seven interceptions while also contributing 85 tackles, three sacks and a pass broken up. He showed some solid instincts with a knack for big plays, and also contributed on special teams. Winfield helped himself with a fast 40 at the combine, but has some serious size and length limitations for the NFL.

    In pass coverage, Winfield is a dangerous play-maker who has good instincts and covers a lot of ground on the back end. He is a true ballhawk who is a threat to create turnovers for his defense. Winfield plays the ball well and shows very good field vision. He is a disciplined defender on the back end and doesn't take false steps in coverage. With his speed, Winfield is a rangy safety who can get from the middle of the field to the sideline and is able to pick up speed receivers downfield.

    Winfield is a willing tackler in the ground game, and there are times where he dishes out some hits that are surprising for a defender of his size. Winfield shows nice technique as a tackler and wraps up ball-carriers. In the NFL, Winfield does not have the size to be the eighth man in the box and take on big backs. He should be a free safety who lines up downfield.


  6. Ashtyn Davis, S, California
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 195. Arm: 31.38. Hand: 9.25.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Projected Round (2020): 3-5.

    4/22/20: Some in the media have pushed Davis as a high pick, but multiple team sources called that too rich to them. They didn't see a first-rounder on tape Davis has some upside. In 2019, he recorded 55 tackles with two interceptions, four passes defended and a forced fumble.

    Some team sources said they graded Davis in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. They feel he is not strong or physical enough for the NFL because he missed a ton of tackles. Some say he doesn't appear to have the desire to tackle and label some of his lack of physicality as criminal. They think he is going to get run over and blocked out of plays consistently at the next level. They also note Davis is athletic, but does not have the instincts of a rangy centerfielder. Some sources compare Davis to Chris Conte.

    6/22/19: In 2018, Davis had 36 tackles with four interceptions and five passes broken up. He also competes on California's track and field team.


  7. J.R. Reed, S, Georgia
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 202. Arm: 32.5. Hand: 9.88.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2020): 3-5.

    4/22/20: In 2019, Reed had 54 tackles with an interception and seven passes broken up. He was a solid and dependable safety for Georgia. Reed is smart and reliable defender who would be drafted higher if he had a better skill set.

    6/22/19: Reed totaled 66 tackles with two passes broken up and two interceptions in 2018. He was a quality run defender for Georgia in 2017, chipping in 79 tackles with five for a loss. In coverage, he made two interceptions with five passes broken up. Reed could use more weight on his frame.




  8. Darnay Holmes, S/CB, UCLA
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 192. Arm: 30.63. Hand: 9.13.
    40 Time: 4.48.
    Projected Round (2020): 3-5.

    4/22/20: Holmes was a late addition to the Senior Bowl after having a strong 2019 that likely improved his draft standing. He recorded 33 tackles with two interceptions and six passes defended on the year.

    In the NFL, Holmes would probably fit best as a nickel corner. He could have transferred or returned to UCLA, but decided to make the move to the next level. Holmes had 49 tackles with three interceptions and eight passes defended in 2018. In his redshirt freshman season, he notched 39 tackles with three picks and three breakups.

    Team source say that Holmes has some physical limitations for the NFL and is undersized. They also say that his tape was not as good as his Senior Bowl performance.


  9. Terrell Burgess, S, Utah
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 202. Arm: 30. Hand 9.25.
    40 Time: 4.46.
    Projected Round (2020): 4-6.

    4/22/20: Burgess was the other piece of a tough safety duo for the Utes, and like Julian Blackmon, Burgess made the trip to Mobile for the Senior Bowl. As the Utes' strong safety, Burgess was a tough defender in the middle of the field. In 2019, Burgess had 81 tackles with one interception and five passes defended. He could stand to get stronger to tackle NFL backs, but he helped himself with a fast 40 at the combine.


  10. Antoine Brooks Jr., S, Maryland
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 213. Arm: 31.75. Hand: 8.38.
    40 Time: 4.64.
    Projected Round (2020): 4-6.

    4/22/20: Brooks had a productive senior year as a run stopper, making 85 tackles. He had one interception and five passes defended as well. Brooks also contributed as a junior with 68 tackles and 77 in his sophomore campaign. He totaled four passes defended and one interception over those two years.




  11. Khaleke Hudson, S, Michigan
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 218. Arm: 30. Hand: 10.
    40 Time: 4.56.
    Projected Round (2020): 4-6.

    4/22/20: Hudson totaled 102 tackles, three passes defended and two sacks in 2019. He is a solid run defender who could stand to improve his pass coverage for the NFL.

    6/22/19: In 2018, Hudson had 45 tackles with two sacks and one pass broken up. He needs to improve his pass coverage as a senior. After serving as a backup during his freshman campaign, Hudson broke out in 2017. The first-year starter made 83 tackles with 18.5 tackles for a loss, eight sacks, nine passes broken up and two interceptions on the year. Hudson is an excellent blitzer with the upside to develop more coverage skills. He will be an interesting prospect to watch and has the potential to rise.


  12. Jordan Fuller, S, Ohio State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 203. Arm: 31. Hand: 9.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.67.
    Projected Round (2020): 4-6.

    4/22/20: Fuller recorded 62 tackles with two interceptions and four passes broken up in 2019. He was a solid, if unspectacular, defender for Ohio State as a senior. Fuller has some limitations for the NFL, and that was illustrated at the combine, as he is not a big safety in terms of weight and ran a slow 40.

    6/22/19: Fuller totaled 81 tackles with four breakups and an interception in 2018. The senior could rise over the course of 2019. He has the upside to evolve into a better player now that he has some experience. In his first year as a starter, Fuller totaled 70 tackles with two breakups and two interceptions.


  13. Jalen Elliott, S, Notre Dame
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 205. Arm: 32. Hand: 9.13.
    40 Time: 4.80.
    Projected Round (2020): 4-6.

    4/22/20: In 2019, Elliott had 49 tackles with two interceptions and two passes defended. He did not impress at the Senior Bowl, and had an awful 40 time at the combine.

    6/22/19: Elliott broke into the starting lineup as a sophomore and has been a solid defender for Notre Dame. In his debut season, he totaled 43 tackles with two breakups, and showed a lot of improvement as a junior. For 2018, Elliott totaled 63 tackles with four interceptions and six passes broken up. If the senior can continue to improve, he could be a riser during the 2020 NFL Draft process.




  14. Reggie Floyd, S, Virginia Tech
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 222.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.61.
    Projected Round (2020): 4-6.

    4/22/20: In 2019, Floyd collected 69 tackles with eight passes broken up.

    6/22/19: Floyd is a strong safety type for the NFL, and he was a tough defender for the Hokies in 2018. With 88 tackles, 9.5 for a loss, two interceptions, and a pass broken up last season, Floyd was a steady presence for Virginia Tech. In 2017, he collected 72 tackles with three interceptions. Floyd could fit as a strong safety and dime linebacker type for the NFL.


  15. Julian Blackmon, S, Utah
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 187. Arm: 31. Hand: 9.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.60.
    Projected Round (2020): 4-6.

    4/22/20: Blackmon is a converted cornerback who was moved to free safety for his senior season and was a solid defender for the Utes. In 2019, he totaled 60 tackles with 1.5 sacks, four interceptions and four passes defended. Blackmon had an excellent game against UCLA with 12 tackles and an interception. He had a quality debut at corner in 2017 with four interceptions and 10 passes broken up, and he followed that up with 10 breakups as a junior. Blackmon needs to get stronger to tackle in the NFL. He could be a developmental project from the third day of the 2020 NFL Draft.


  16. K'Von Wallace, S, Clemson
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 199. Arm: 31.88. Hand: 9.
    40 Time: 4.53.
    Projected Round (2020): 4-6.

    4/22/20: Wallace was a star defender who provided a steady presence on the back end for Clemson. The senior notched two interceptions with 63 tackles, two interceptions, two sacks and 10 passes broken up in 2019. In 2018, he had 52 stops with an interception and three passes defended. Wallace has some size limitations for the NFL, which again showed at the Senior Bowl. For the next level, Wallace looks like a backup and special teams competitor.




  17. Kamren Curl, S, Arkansas
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 206. Arm: 32.63. Hand: 8.5.
    40 Time: 4.60.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: Some team sources said they gave Curl grades for Day 3 of the 2020 NFL Draft. He recorded 76 tackles with two sacks, two forced fumbles, two interceptions and two passes defended in 2019. Over his freshman and sophomore seasons, he totaled 99 tackles with 13 passes broken up. Curl could compete to be a backup and special teams contributor.


  18. Brandon Jones, S, Texas
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 210. Arm: 30.13. Hand: 8.75.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: Jones collected 86 tackles, one sack, two interceptions and four passes defended in 2019. He is a fast defender, but he is an undersized strong safety who struggles in coverage and lacks strength and explosion as a tackler. For the NFL, Jones is more of a backup safety and special teams contributor.

    6/22/19: Jones had a quality junior season for the Longhorns, totaling 70 tackles with two interceptions and three passes broken up over 10 games. A high ankle sprain also hindered Jones for a lot of last season, and he had surgery on the ankle in February of 2019. Jones is expected to be ready for the 2019 season.


  19. Geno Stone*, S, Iowa
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 207. Arm: 29.25. Hand: 9.13.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: Stone was a solid defender for Iowa in 2019, totaling 70 tackles with three forced fumbles, an interception and four passes defended. He is strong for his size, but he has length and height limitations for the NFL. As a sophomore, Stone had 39 tackles with four interceptions and three passes broken up.




  20. Jared Mayden, S, Alabama
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 201. Arm: 31.88. Hand: 8.63.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: It took some time for Mayden to earn playing time because of Alabama's loaded secondary, but he became a starter as a senior and totaled 59 tackles with four interceptions and three passes broken up. Mayden would fit best as a strong safety in the NFL and could compete to be a backup and special teams contributor. Mayden did not impress at the Senior Bowl.


  21. Alohi Gilman, S, Notre Dame
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 202. Arm: 32. Hand 9.13.
    40 Time: 4.60.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: Gilman collected 74 tackles with three forced fumbles, an interception, one sack and two passes broken up in 2019. He did not impress at the Senior Bowl.

    6/22/19: Gilman was a good run defender for the Fighting Irish in 2018, knocking out 95 tackles with three forced fumbles. He also had three interceptions and five passes broken up. Gilman previously sat out 2017 after transferring. He played his freshman year at Navy, where he collected 76 tackles.


  22. Jeremiah Dinson, S, Auburn
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 191.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: In 2019, Dinson had 88 tackles with two interceptions and a pass defended. He was a solid defender for Auburn.

    6/22/19: In 2018, Dinson had 64 tackles with three passes broke up and two interceptions. He totaled 47 stops and four breakups in 2017. Dinson could form a good safety tandem with Daniel Thomas for the Tigers, and both of them were placed on NFL teams' preseason watch list.




  23. David Dowell, S, Michigan State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 191.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: In 2019, Dowell recorded 55 tackles, an interception and two passes broken up. He didn't produce many big plays for the Spartans.

    6/22/19: Dowell totaled 55 tackles with two interceptions and two passes broken up in 2018. As a first-year starter in 2017, Dowell was impressive with five interceptions, four passes broken up and 52 tackles. Adding some strength to his frame to tackle for the NFL will be necessary for him as a senior.


  24. Josh Metellus, S, Michigan
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 209. Arm: 32.25. Hand: 10.25.
    40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: Metellus had 74 tackles with two interceptions and five passes broken up in 2019.

    6/22/19: In 2018, Metullus was part of a tough safety tandem for the Wolverines. He had 48 tackles with three interceptions and nine passes defended on the year. In 2017, Metullus totaled 50 tackles with five passes batted. The senior was selected to be on NFL teams' preseason watch list, and some have projected him to have potential for the back half of the 2020 NFL Draft.


  25. Damar Hamlin, S, Pittsburgh
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 195.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: For 2019, Hamlin totaled 84 tackles with 10 passes broken up and an interception.

    6/22/19: Hamlin was a solid defender for the Panthers in 2018, totaling two interceptions, four passes broken up and 90 tackles. It was a big improvement over his sophomore year, when he had one pick and 41 tackles in nine games. Hamlin was selected to NFL teams' preseason watch list.


  26. Daniel Thomas, S, Auburn
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 215. Arm: 31.64.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: Thomas collected 74 tackles with a forced fumble and one passes broken up in 2019. He looks like a backup safety and special teams competitor for the next level.

    6/22/19: Thomas is a thickly built strong safety type who had a solid 2018 season for Auburn. He had two interceptions with three breakups to go along with 74 tackles on the year. Thomas has upside to improve as a senior.




  27. Brian Cole II, S, Mississippi State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 205. Arm: 32. Hand: 10.
    40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: Cole had 67 tackles, two passes broken up, one forced fumble, one interception and a sack in 2019. He did enough in practice to get NFL scouts to put him on their 2019 preseason watch list given that he had only 11 tackles in 2018.


  28. Marcelino Ball, S, Indiana
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 219.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: Ball had 47 tackles with one pass broken up and two sacks in 2019.

    6/22/19: Ball was selected for NFL teams' preseason watch list, and some advance scouts projected him as having the potential to get selected in the top half of the 2020 NFL Draft. In 2018, Ball totaled 59 tackles with four passes broken up, one interception, 7.5 tackles for a loss, and 2.5 sacks. As a freshman in 2016, he had 75 tackles with 10 passes defended and two interceptions. A knee injury limited him to only three games in 2017.


  29. JaQuarius Landrews, S, Mississippi State
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 195.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: For 2019, Landrews totaled 77 tackles with 13 passes broken up and one interception.

    6/22/19: Landrews started out his collegiate career in the junior college ranks before landing at Mississippi State. In 2018, his first season with the Bulldogs, Landrews had 21 tackles with five passes broken up. He missed three games in November. Some advance scouts gave Landrews a projection of having the potential to go in the top half of the 2020 NFL Draft.


  30. Xavier Lewis, S, Southeastern Louisiana
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: In 2019, Lewis totaled 59 tackles with three interceptions, three sacks and two passes broken up.

    6/22/19: Lewis played well enough in 2018 to get selected for NFL teams' preseason watch list, and some projected him to having potential for the back half of the 2020 NFL Draft. Lewis produced well for Southeastern Louisiana in 2018, recording 66 tackles with 7.5 for a loss, two sacks, three forced fumbles, and three passes broken up. Going to a top all-star game and playing well there is important for Lewis' draft grade.




  31. Rodney Clemons, S, SMU
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.60.
    Projected Round (2020): 5-7.

    4/22/20: Clemons had 78 tackles, four interceptions and nine passes defended in 2019.

    6/22/19: In 2018, Clemons totaled 72 tackles with four passes defended, and one interception and one forced fumble. He was pretty consistent with his sophomore production of 68 tackles, 10 passes broken up, and an interception. Clemons earned a spot on NFL teams' preseason watch list, and some put him down as a potential pick for the back half of the 2020 NFL Draft.


  32. Shyheim Carter, S/CB, Alabama
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 194. Arm: 29.63. Hand: 9.5.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2020): 6-FA.

    4/22/20: Carter had 43 tackles with seven passes broken up and an interception in 2019. He was a solid player for Alabama with slot corner and has safety potential, but he has some skill-set limitations for the NFL. He had a solid week at the East-West Shrine but is on the small side and not fast.

    6/22/19: Carter was very good for Alabama during the 2018 season and played better than his stats illustrated. He took over the star position that had previously been played by Minkah Fitzpatrick. Like Fitzpatrick, Carter showed an ability to play safety and slot cornerback. He totaled two interceptions, 10 breakups, one forced fumble and 27 tackles on the year. Carter could be even better in 2019 with his increased experience and development from the Crimson Tide coaching staff.


  33. Tanner Muse, S, Clemson
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 227. Arm: 31.5. Hand: 9.
    40 Time: 4.41.
    Projected Round (2020): 6-FA.

    4/22/20: In 2019, Muse recorded 50 tackles with four interceptions and three passes broken up. He was a good college player, but he has some limitations for the NFL that could be seen in an ugly performance in the ACC Championship Game versus Virginia. Muse helped himself by running fast at the combine.

    6/22/19: Muse notched 53 tackles, two interceptions and four breakups in 2018. He is a competent strong safety for the college game, but he may not translate as well to the NFL. Muse totaled 57 tackles with five passes broken up in 2017. He is a strong safety type who has coverage limitations.


  34. Jaylinn Hawkins, S, California
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 208. Arm: 31.75. Hand: 9.5.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2020): 6-FA.

    4/22/20: Hawkins totaled 53 tackles with two passes defended, two interceptions and two sacks in 2019.

    6/22/19: Hawkins was one of the most dangerous ballhawks in college football in 2018, snatching six interceptions. He also had nine passes defended. Some advance scouts project Hawkins as having potential to be picked in the back half of the draft.




  35. Myles Dorn, S, North Carolina
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.56.
    Projected Round (2020): 6-FA.

    4/22/20: Dorn totaled 83 tackles with two interceptions and six passes broken up in 2019.

    6/22/19: Dorn was a solid defender for North Carolina over the past two seasons. He nabbed two interceptions in each of the past two years, atop 55 tackles as a junior and 71 as a sophomore. Dorn collected eight passes broken up over that time. The senior could help himself by showing more cover skills in 2019.


  36. Taylor Robinson, S, North Texas
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 187.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2020): 6-FA.

    4/22/20: Robinson recorded 63 tackles with seven passes broken up, an interception and a forced fumble in 2019.

    6/22/19: Robinson is part of a safety tandem that landed on NFL teams' preseason watch list that includes a surprising total of seven prospects from the Mean Green. In 2018, he totaled 58 tackles with 2.5 tackles for a loss, two interceptions and two passes broken up. Robinson is undersized for the NFL and will need to get stronger to tackle NFL running backs, wide receivers and tight ends.


  37. DanQuarian Fields, S, Grambling State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.60.
    Projected Round (2020): 7-FA.

    4/22/20: For 2019, Fields totaled 18 tackles with an interception.

    6/22/19: In 2018, Fields had 59 tackles with a breakup and an interception over nine games. He totaled 30 tackles over the previous two seasons, but his junior year was impressive enough to NFL advance scouts that he was given a place on their preseason watch list for the 2020 NFL Draft.


  38. Khairi Muhammed, S, North Texas
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 188.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2020): 7-FA.

    4/22/20: Muhammed recorded 68 tackles with four breakups and an interception in 2019.

    6/22/19: Muhammed recorded 67 tackles with four interceptions and five passes broken up in 2018. He is undersized for safety in the NFL and will need to add weight and strength. Muhammed also created a controversy for himself by posting a video of animal cruelty on snapchat.


  39. Grayland Arnold*, S, Baylor
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 186. Arm: 29. Hand: 9.13.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.60.
    Projected Round (2020): FA.

    4/22/20: Arnold notched 46 tackles with six interceptions and two passes defended in 2019. He could have returned to Baylor, but he decided to skip his final season of eligibility. Team sources say Arnold is small and not all that fast, but he is a decent athlete with instincts. They say he has good hands and ball skills and passes seemed to find him, but he lacks the physical tools for the NFL. Some graded him as priority free agent.
