The Tigers defensive back is one of the most boom-or-bust players in this year's draft class. He has the physical tools and mindset to be dominant in press coverage, but he is also prone to mistakes that lead to big receptions and penalties.
The Sun Devils star has tantalizing speed and obvious open-field talent once he gets the ball in his hands. He also has a complete inability to defeat press coverage, a weakness that will render him a project in the NFL.
Patrick Queen isn't the only star on the Tigers defense. Grant Delpit offers unusual speed, coverage ability, and playmaking instincts in the backfield. His tackling ability is also unusual ... for all the wrong reasons.
The Tigers' defensive star is undersized, and his tackling is less than ideal. But his sideline-to-sideline range and intuitive playmaking instincts should make him the first linebacker off the board in the NFL draft.
The Aggies' passer has tremendous physical gifts that cannot be taught, and those traits will make him enticing to NFL teams. But he also made a lot of mistakes in college, mistakes that would only be more common against complex NFL schemes.

From the same Buckeyes team that brought you Marshon Lattimore and Denzel Ward comes the latest cornerback likely to be the first player drafted at his position in April. Derrik Klassen shows why Okudah would be an asset for any defense in the league.
A year ago, the Crimson Tide signal-caller was considered a lock to be the top pick in the 2020 draft. That's no longer the case, but how far down the board will Tagovailoa fall? What weaknesses did he show in Tuscaloosa, and how will his hip injury affect his NFL prospects?

Linebacker, edge rusher, nickelback, corner, safety -- Clemson's Swiss Army knife played all over the field for the Tigers. His best fit in the NFL won't be determined for a while, but most any defense could use a player such as this somewhere.
