With this year's cornerback class not looking particularly impressive, there's plenty of room for some of the mid-round picks to make a name for themselves. That's what cornerbacks like Miami's Brandon McGee are hoping for as the draft period now looms just nine days away.
McGee is rated as the 18th-best cornerback in the 2013 draft by nfldraftscout.com and is currently projected to go in the fourth round. He's building on some positive momentum from the combine, which saw him do well by running the eighth-fastest 40-yard dash time and also lifting an impressive 14 reps.
McGee's recent resurgence doesn't appear to make him another fluky "combine warrior." A brief look back at his career with the Hurricanes shows an intense player who has the ability start at the cornerback position in the NFL. Here are some of the best plays from McGee's college career.
