1. Greedy Williams
Height: 6’2″, Weight: 185
Greedy Williams can be a tough cornerback to judge. He’s great in pass coverage and is rarely beaten. But he tends to fade as games went on and there are serious questions about his toughness. If he can find the motivation, he has the potential to be the next shutdown corner in the NFL.
2. Deandre Baker
Height: 5’11”, Weight: 193
A tough and physical corner, Deandre Baker is a well-rounded corner. He’s tight in coverage and comfortable handfighting with receivers. His closing speed is great and Baker does a phenomenal job of watching the quarterback. Baker was also a solid tackler.
3. Joejuan Williams
Height: 6’4″, Weight: 211
One of my favorite corners to watch this year. Joejuan Williams will have to improve on his consistency but he has the tools to be an excellent corner in the NFL. Williams has fantastic size and is a physical corner. He’s a great tackler and is excellent in positioning himself on throws. His lack of speed has the potential to limit him in the NFL.
4. Byron Murphy
Height: 5’11”, Weight: 190
Byron Murphy is a great coverage corner who needs to improve his physicality. He often struggled to shed blockers and his tackling wasn’t great. But, in pass coverage he’s fantastic. He’s comfortable watching the quarterback and was ballhawk who’s dangerous in the open field. Murphy stepped up often on 3rd downs and late in games as well.
5. Trayvon Mullen
Height: 6’1″, Weight: 199
A corner with good size, Trayvon Mullen is frequently step-for-step with opposing receivers. He displayed great closing speed and was also used as a blitzer at Clemson. Mullen’s instincts can be improved, he fell victim often to quick breaks from receivers and back shoulder throws.
