After months of anticipation, the NFL Draft is less than a week away. This upcoming class promises to be one of the most polarizing in a long time. This is of course due to the quarterback talent.

NOTE: These rankings do not...

Excellent in zone coverage as he reads the QB’s eyes very well. Similar to his father, Samuel does a fantastic job of attacking the ball in this aspect as well. Moves very well.
I really do not like him in man coverage...
