CB Jeff Okudah, Ohio State
—Picture-perfect cornerback prospect with height (6'1"), weight (205 lbs) and instincts to become a top-level NFL starter early in his career.
—Battle-tested in the Big Ten and didn't skip a beat; was too big, too smart and too technically sound to be beaten.
—Ideal short-area quickness, agility and balance; able to flip his hips either direction and shows exceptional click-and-close ability.
—Feet like Darrelle Revis; might not be the fastest player, but he will put himself in position to erase wide receivers.
—Can lock down one side of the field in man coverage; big enough to play in press duties.
—Fluid mover who has the size, short-area quickness and awareness to excel in zone coverage.
—Shuts down opposing receivers and has the perfect blend of size, athleticism and football IQ to be a CB1.

—Only had three interceptions in college; opposing quarterbacks didn't throw his way often, but that low of a number points to some issues with ball-tracking.
—Handsy and physical at the route stem, which could lead to pass interference calls in the NFL.
Okudah is the best cornerback prospect we've evaluated since Jalen Ramsey left Florida State. Unlike many top cornerbacks in recent years, Okudah has no injury history and has the NFL size to match up with any type of receiver he faces. He grades out at an All-Pro level, and he should become a top player at his position within his first few seasons.
