  1. Shaun Wade*, CB, Ohio State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 194.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Projected Round (2021): .
    View Ranking History


    8/19/19: Wade had 25 tackles with eight passes broken up, an interception and two sacks in 2019. He made some impressive plays for the Buckeyes and was a bigger presence than the numbers indicate. During the fall, I reported that team sources said they believed Wade was likely to go back to Ohio State for 2020, which is what happened.

    Wade has a good skill set to develop with a ton of upside. He had a strong debut for the Buckeyes in 2018, totaling 31 tackles, three interceptions, seven passes defended and one forced fumble on the year. Even though Wade has the size to line up on the outside, Ohio State played him mostly at slot cornerback in 2018 and 2019, and he did well there. With Jeff Okudah and Damon Arnette moving on to the NFL, Wade could move to the outside in 2020, and it would help his draft grade if he plays well there as it would demonstrate the versatility to be effective at numerous spots in coverage. Wade also played some safety. The Jacksonville, Florida product missed the 2017 season because of abdominal surgery.

  2. Patrick Surtain II*, CB, Alabama
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 194.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Projected Round (2021): .
    View Ranking History


    8/19/19: With Alabama consistently featuring a loaded secondary, it can be hard for young players to see the field. Surtain, however, was the exception, as the star recruit got a lot of playing time for a freshman under Nick Saban. Surtain played well in 2018, recording 28 tackles with an interception, seven passes defended and one forced fumble. He looked like he was just scratching the surface of his potential. As a sophomore in 2019, Surtain had 42 tackles with two interceptions, three forced fumbles and eight passes broken up in 2019. Surtain has good size and tons of upside.


  3. Paulson Adebo*, CB, Stanford
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 194.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Projected Round (2021): .
    View Ranking History


    1/11/20: 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. He had a bounce-back game against Washington with four breakups. Adebo totaled 33 tackles with four interceptions and 10 passes broken up on the year, but he 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.

    Adebo is a big corner who has cover skills and a tremendous ability to play the ball. He also has good instincts and good technique. Adebo shows the size to match up with big wideouts and the speed to carry verticals. He just has to get more disciplined and improve his ability to handle double moves.

  4. Israel Mukuamu*, CB, South Carolina
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 194.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Projected Round (2021): .
    View Ranking History


    8/19/19: Mukuamu was very good in 2019, producing four interceptions, nine passes broken up and 59 tackles. The sophomore put together a huge game against Georgia, shutting down the Bulldogs' passing attack to lead the Gamecocks to a huge upset win. Mukuamu is a big corner who fights and competes. The question to get answered during his junior year will be if he has enough speed to be an early-rounder.

    8/19/19: In 2019, Campbell had 15 tackles with four passes broken up. Campbell has ability, which he flashed for Georgia during 2018. Campbell was a streaky player with some ups and downs, but showed that he has plenty of upside to develop. He totaled 29 tackles with one forced fumble and one pass broken up that season.
