    1. Janoris Jenkins: North Alabama (5-10, 182)
    If he can put it all together off the field, he's got the ability to develop into a very good cover man in the NFL and despite his size he's going to be a really tough guy to separate from in just about any scheme he plays in.

    ICONFrom a talent perspective, there isn't anything Norman can't do.

    2. Josh Norman: Coastal Carolina (6-0, 190)
    Talent says he's a top-60 pick, but there are some character concerns that could cause him to fall. Either way he has the talent to quickly match-up with NFL receiver at the next level.
    Grade: 6.8 C

    3. Trumaine Johnson: Montana (6-2, 204)
    A talented kid who physically/athletic reminds me a lot of Jimmy Smith (Baltimore Ravens). Now, he's not as experienced as a pressman as Smith was, but has the same type of upside and can be a similar player if he commits himself fully to the game at the next.

    Trumaine Johnson is intriguing. I think if you are looking for a tall guy with coverage skills, he is the man to get. The rap on him is that he lacks speed and isn't as fluid, so he might transition to safety in the NFL.

    Why does everyone seem to think it is so easy to transition from Corner to Safety?

    It's not easy, but it does happen from time to time.

    I really like Josh Norman. Good size and plays tough.

    I agree, Trumaine Johnson is intriguing. Not sure what round he comes off the board though.
