Go ahead and add Jeffrey Okudah to the list of prospects putting their name in the 2020 NFL Draft hat. In a move that didn’t surprise the staff here, the Ohio State defensive back has officially declared. We have seen a record number of underclassmen declare for the draft. With the momentum behind Okudah’s draft stock, this decision seemed inevitable.

We have Jeffrey Okudah listed as the top cornerback prospect in the 2020 class. In my opinion, his man coverage abilities at this stage in his career are some of the best that I’ve seen. At the very least, Okudah is a pro-ready defensive prospect that will be able to contribute to a team from day one.
I currently have a mid-first round grade on Okudah. Although, that could change as we get into the meat of the NFL Draft season with the NFL Combine and the Ohio State Pro Day. We have plenty of mock drafts available on the website, with archives available HERE. I invite you to check them out and let us all know what you think.
