4. Cornerback

It might be surprising to not see cornerback higher on this list but with how the dominoes are projected to fall, Terry Fontenot might have to look elsewhere for a starting corner opposite A.J. Terrell.

The top of the draft is going to be offensive-heavy which is going to push all of the defensive prospects down the board. The big-named defensive prospects are positions closer to the football.

You have the two corners from Alabama, as well as Nate Wiggins, Quinyon Mitchell, and Ennis Rakestraw who could be targets if Fontenot were to trade down.
