LSU's Jalen Collins, Michigan State's Trae Waynes, and UConn's Byron Jones could all benefit from the "several teams picking between No. 11 and No. 26 overall that could use a corner, including the Vikings, Saints and Ravens," according to ESPN's Todd McShay.
"Given the influx of talented receivers last year, and with another good class on the way, teams are starving for cornerbacks -- especially ones with size," McShay wrote. "Teams simply have to find guys with length and speed to match up with some of these guys, and they might be more inclined than in past years to take a chance on a corner early who might not have the polish and technique they're looking for, but who does have the natural tools needed to develop into a good NFL cornerback." As for Collins, he put himself firmly in the Round 1 discussion by clocking a 4.48 40-yard dash in Indy (9th amongst CBs), a 6.77 seconds in the 3-cone drill (2nd), a 10’4" broad jump (9th), and a 36" vertical (13th).
