Michigan State junior CB Trae Waynes had two interceptions in Saturday's win against Nebraska.
Waynes is one of the nation's hottest prospects at the moment. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote last week that Warnes could "make it back-to-back years for Michigan State corners drafted among the top -32 picks if he leaves early," an allusion to the matching of Darqueze Dennard's accomplishment. The 6-foot-1, 178-pound Waynes was an honorable mention All-Big Ten pick in 2013, collecting three interceptions, eight passes defended, and 50 tackles, including 1.5 for loss. Oct 6 - 6:52 PM

Michigan State junior CB Trae Waynes "has a chance to make it back-to-back years for Michigan State corners drafted among the top-32 picks."

"The Spartans have had 26 defensive backs drafted over the past 50 years, but Darqueze Dennard was the only first rounder of that group. And Waynes has a chance to make it back-to-back years for Michigan State corners drafted among the top -32 picks if he leaves early," Brugler wrote. Although Waynes has a tendency to "freelance, creating wasted movement and false steps," Brugler likes that "he is tall, long and fast with ballskills and ball awareness to make plays at the catch point."

CBS Sports Dane Brugler notes "as a sophomore, junior CB Trae Waynes played like a young Kyle Fuller."

"As a sophomore, Waynes played like a young Kyle Fuller and if he can introduce more discipline to his game moving forward, he will have bright future in East Lansing and the NFL," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-1, 178 pound Waynes was an honorable mention All-Big Ten pick in 2013, starting in all 14 games for the Spartans. As a first-time starter, Waynes finished with 3 interceptions and 8 passes defended, with 50 tackles, including 1.5 for losses. Now that CB Darqueze Dennard is off to the NFL, Waynes is now the top cornerback on the Spartan's roster.

Michigan State coaches are excited about new starting sophomore CB Trae Waynes.

"You look at Trae Waynes and say, 'Where are you compared to where Trae Waynes was a year ago?' Trae obviously just didn't overnight become this great player," defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi said. "Trae's to the point right now where you don't want to take Trae off the field." Waynes will start opposite talented senior Darqueze Dennard.
