RIVALS CAMP SERIES: Info/coverage on 2021 camp series
1. Kyle Hamilton, Notre Dame
Hamilton is head and shoulders above the rest at the position and has shown his amazing range early this season.
2. Jaquan Brisker, Penn State
Brisker is off to a great start this year and his combination of toughness, tackling and instincts has his stock rising.
3. Brandon Joseph, Northwestern
Joseph has very good range and tracks the ball with the best.
4. Leon O’Neal, Texas A&M
O'Neal is an early surprise this high on this list because his ability in run support has improved so much.
5. Jordan Battle, Alabama
Battle continues to be solid for Alabama but needs to step things up a bit to get in the first-round discussion.
6. Tykee Smith, Georgia
Not playing yet this season has hurt Smith's stock but scouts still love his nickel coverage ability.
7. Jalen Catalon, Arkansas
Catalon can take over games at times and is slept on nationally.
8. Lewis Cine, Georgia
The biggest hitter of the bunch, Cine is as physical as they come.
9. Verone McKinley, Oregon
McKinley may not wow you in any one way but his football sense is amazing.
10. Tre Sterling, Oklahoma State
Sterling is a physical prospect and very good tackler who plays well closer to the line of scrimmage.
