Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Alabama 6-1.3 208 4.58 Not as physical as Pryor but mechanics are solid and he's better in coverage and as a ball athlete.

Jimmie Ward, NIU 5-10.6 197 4.48 Lacks ideal size and strength but is a willing tackler with a burst in coverage.

Deone Bucannon, Washington State 6-1.0 211 4.49 Very good size-speed combo; aggressive run defender who had 15 career INTs.

Dez Southward, Wisconsin 6-0.2 211 4.41 Elite size-speed project whose production on the field falls short of workout-warrior numbers.

Brock Vereen, Minnesota 5-11.5 199 4.47 Lacks some size as a safety but has the fluidity and cover skills to project to nickel CB.

Craig Loston, LSU 6-0.5 217 4.64 Smart and tough, physical hitter who is more effective in the box than in coverage.

Terrence Brooks, Florida State 5-10.7 198 4.42

Has the speed and movement skills to cover WRs but lacking as a ball athlete.

Maurice Alexander, Utah State 6-1.2 220 4.54 Converted LB who will be limited to in-the-box role. Deficient in coverage but has S-T potential.

Ahmad Dixon, Baylor 6-0.0 212 4.64 Lacks coverage skills and will be limited to playing in the box and special teams.

Note: Number following the period under "Ht." refers to eighths of an inch.
