2020 NFL Draft: Initial List of Cornerback Prospects

2020 NFL Draft Bryce Hall

This post will serve as the initial list of Cornerback prospects that I will be watching for the 2020 NFL Draft. I do not have a great feel for this position group outside a couple of the top guys.

The players listed below are posted in no particular order. They are broken down by class. As posted in the DFD State of the Union, I will only initially be watching 300 total prospects in the fall. These are the 30 cornerbacks I am watching during the 2019 season. There are 21 seniors and 9 juniors.

If another cornerback jumps out to me in the lead up to the 2019 season (or during), I will replace one on this list. I have an initial production score for each player on this list. As I watch the tape, on each this summer (or fall), the initial rankings will come together.

Throughout the next week, I will be posting each position’s initial rankings.

Initial prospect rankings: QB, RB, WR, TE, OT, IOL, EDGE, DL, LB
