1. DARQUEZE DENNARD
Cornerback, Senior, Michigan State
Dennard is a physical cornerback who can shut down his side of the field (as he did in the Rose Bowl when he limited Stanford's Ty Montgomery to three catches for 21 yards). The cousin of current Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard excels in press coverage despite his size (5-11, 197 pounds). He has good speed and technique and is tough to beat deep, but he also plays the run very well. PROJECTION: Top-20 overall |(Credit: Getty Images)
