Previous Seasons

Height: 6-0. Weight: 202.
Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
Projected Round (2024): 1-2
View Ranking History

8/9/22: Florida fired Dan Mullen in large part because the Gators had not recruited good talent, as evidenced by their pathetic defense in 2021. The one exception was Torrence. He was very impressive, doing a good job in coverage, putting up quality run defense, and showing solid instincts. Torrence notched 87 tackles, three interceptions and two passes defended in 2021. He is a versatile safety who has upside.





Previous Seasons

  • '22 - Lewis Cine, Georgia
  • '21 - Jevon Holland, Oregon
2. Alabama image Malachi Moore, S/CB, Alabama
Height: 6-0. Weight: 4.48.
Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
Projected Round (2024): 1-3
View Ranking History

8/9/22: Moore is a versatile defensive back who plays the STAR position that was previously manned by the likes of Minkah Fitzpatrick and Xavier McKinney. Moore has quality size to go with speed and instincts.

Moore had a phenomenal freshman season in 2020, totaling 44 tackles, one forced fumble, three interceptions and six passes broken up. Moore recorded 16 tackles and an interception in 2021, but he also missed the final four games with an injury.



Previous Seasons

  • '22 - Daxton Hill, Michigan
  • '21 - Andre Cisco, Syracuse
3. Florida State image Akeem Dent, S, Florida State
Height: 6-1. Weight: 203.
Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
Projected Round (2024): 2-3
View Ranking History

8/9/22: Dent (6-1, 203) really came on in the back half of the 2021 season, showing improved tackling to go with solid pass-coverage skills. In 2021, he collected 44 tackles, an interception and four passes defended. He recorded 35 tackles and seven breakups in 2019. For the Seminoles, he's played both cornerback and safety, but the latter looks like his best position for the next level.



Previous Seasons

  • '22 - Jaquan Brisker, Penn State
  • '21 - Richie Grant, Central Florida
4. Utah image Cole Bishop*, S, Utah
Height: 6-2. Weight: 205.
Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
Projected Round (2024): 3-4
View Ranking History

8/9/22: Bishop only started half the 2021 season, but he played really well for the Utes with 54 tackles, three sacks and five passes broken up. If Bishop builds on his performance as a sophomore and junior, he could definitely rise for the 2024 NFL Draft.





Previous Seasons

  • '22 - Nick Cross, Maryland
  • '21 - Joshuah Bledsoe, Missouri
5. Clemson image Andrew Mukuba*, S, Clemson
Height: 6-0. Weight: 185.
Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
Projected Round (2024): 3-5
View Ranking History

8/9/22: Mukuba had a solid freshman season with 47 tackles and six passes broken up. He needs to build on that performance and show more coverage ability as he gains experience. For the NFL, Mukuba will need to gain strength and fill out his frame to tackle.



Previous Seasons

  • '22 - Jalen Pitre, Baylor
  • '21 - Talanoa Hufanga, USC
