1. Sauce Gardner, Cincinnati   

This is a tough call at the top, but I’m going with Gardner because of his talent and productivity.

2. Derek Stingley Jr., LSU  

Stingley Jr. could end up being No. 1 after the combine because I expect him to test well, but he was last seen as elite in his freshman season.

3. Trent McDuffie, Washington  

UDub does a great job developing corners (see below), and McDuffie is a scrapper.

4. Andrew Booth, Clemson

He stepped up his game big-time this past season and seemed to get a half step quicker in reaction.

5. Kaiir Elam, Florida  

He’s raw, but he's a great athlete with very good size.

6. Daxton Hill, Michigan  

He’s another I expect to test well, and he could shoot up the list because he’s as fast as anyone.

9. Kyler Gordon, Washington   

See what I said above about Washington? He’s a big corner who could be a steal.

10. Coby Bryant, Cincinnati

He's been overshadowed by Sauce Gardner, but he’s very technically sound.
