Height: 5-11. Weight: 183.

Projected Round (2024): 1-2

8/8/22: Witherspoon has impressed preseason evaluators for having serious speed to go along with adequate size. Advance scouts like his cover ability, and they say he has the speed and athleticism to run the route to prevent separation. However, NFL sources don't like the lack of ball skills and ball production.

Witherspoon notched zero interceptions in 2021 after recording two in 2020 and zero in 2019. He recorded 52 tackles and nine passes defended in 2021. He had 33 tackles in each of the prior two seasons and two passes broken up over that time. If Witherspoon increases his ball production, he could be a riser for the 2023 NFL Draft.





Previous Seasons

  • '22 - Derek Stingley, LSU
  • '21 - Patrick Surtain, Alabama
2. Mississippi State image Emmanuel Forbes, CB, Mississippi State
Height: 6-0. Weight: 180.
Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
Projected Round (2024): 1-2
View Ranking History

8/8/22: Forbes is an interesting corner who has produced a lot of splash plays for the Bulldogs. He needs to become more consistent on a down-by-down basis and be less of a feast-or-famine player. In 2021, Forbes collected 59 tackles, three interceptions and five passes broken up. The previous season, he had 44 tackles, five interceptions, three returned for touchdowns and six passes broken up. Forbes needs to fill out his frame for the NFL.



Previous Seasons

  • '22 - Trent McDuffie, Washington
  • '21 - Caleb Farley, Virginia Tech
3. Alabama image Brian Branch, CB/DB, Alabama
Height: 6-0. Weight: 190.
Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
Projected Round (2024): 1-2
View Ranking History

8/8/22: Alabama has had a lot of first-round cornerbacks under Nick Saban, and the 2023 NFL Draft could see a few more. Branch played well in 2021, showing size and cover skills while recording 55 tackles and nine passes broken up. In 2020, he collected 27 tackles, two interceptions and seven breakups. It would help Branch to generate more interception production as a junior.



Previous Seasons

  • '22 - Daxton Hill, Michigan
  • '21 - Tyson Campbell, Georgia
4. Alabama image Eli Ricks, CB, Alabama
Height: 6-2. Weight: 195.
Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
Projected Round (2024): 1-2
View Ranking History

8/8/22: Ricks has transferred to Alabama and could be a breakout star for the Crimson Tide in 2022. He is a big corner with ball skills. Ricks started out his collegiate career at LSU and had an excellent debut in 2020 with four interceptions, five passes broken up and 20 tackles. He notched 11 tackles and an interception for the Tigers in 2021.





Previous Seasons

  • '22 - Andrew Booth Jr., Clemson
  • '21 - Aaron Robinson, Central Florida
5. Georgia image Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia
Height: 6-2. Weight: 205.
Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
Projected Round (2024): 1-2
View Ranking History

8/8/22: In 2021, Ringo had 34 tackles, two interceptions and eight passes broken up. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder is a big cornerback who possesses a lot of upside. Ringo played well in 2021 as one of the replacements for Tyson Campbell. Ringo could end up being a riser for the 2023 NFL Draft.
