  1. Andre Cisco*, S, Syracuse
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 203.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.

    2/17/20: Over his first two seasons in college football, Cisco was a pure ball hawk for Syracuse. In 2019, Cisco had 65 tackles with five interceptions and five passes broken up. He put together a huge 2018 season with seven interceptions, 18 passes broken up, one forced fumble and 60 tackles. The instinctive free safety could have a hard time repeating his production, but if he continues to play well, those tapes will help him to be an early-rounder.




  2. Richard LeCounte, S, Georgia
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.

    2/17/20: Team sources have told me that LeCounte has stood out to them at times for being a gifted player with upside. He totaled 61 tackles with four interceptions, three passes defended and two forced fumbles in 2019. For 2018, he had 74 tackles with two forced fumbles, an interception and three passes defended.


  3. Caden Sterns*, S, Texas
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-4.

    2/17/20: Sterns had an excellent 2018 season with four interceptions, four passes broken up and 62 tackles. The freshman looked like he could end up being a star, but his sophomore season was mildly disappointing with just 59 tackles, one pass defended and zero interceptions. It will be interesting to see which version of Sterns shows up as a junior.


  4. Richie Grant, S, Central Florida
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 194.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.56.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-4.

    2/17/20: Grant jumped out with a massive 2018 season, totaling 108 tackles with six interceptions, two forced fumbles and three passes broken up. He looked like he could be a first-round pick with a huge presence all over the field. In 2019 though, Grant came down to earth with 78 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble.




  5. Donovan Stiner*, S, Florida
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 203.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.56.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-5.

    2/17/20: Stiner could be a riser if he gets more consistent in run defense and pass coverage as he showed a knack for creating big plays during the 2019 season. As a sophomore, he had four interceptions with 30 tackles and a pass broken up.


  6. Jeawon Taylor, S, Florida
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 206.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-5.

  7. Aashari Crosswell, S, Arizona State
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-5.



  8. James Wiggins, S, Cincinnati
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-5.

  9. J.R. Pace, S, Northwestern
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2021): 5-7.

  10. Prudy Calderon*, S, Rice
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.

  11. Talanoa Hufanga*, S, USC
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.
