Cornerback winners

Jeffrey Okudah, Ohio State. Okudah is built like a prototypical cornerback. Hitting his head and neck area on the ground during a drill could not put a damper on his day. His vertical and broad jumps were fantastic. Over the past five years, the average 40-yard dash time for an All-Pro NFL cornerback is 4.46 seconds; Okudah’s 4.48 was not far off.

Essang Bassey, Wake Forest. Bassey looked fluid in on-field drills and tracked the ball well. His 40-yard dash and jumps all fell within an acceptable range. The Wake Forest product did not hurt his case to be included in the Day 2 conversation.

Darnay Holmes, UCLA. Holmes looked really smooth in the on-field drills. He did not have the best measurables earlier in the week so it was important for him to deliver a solid performance. His 4.48 second 40-yard dash time was solid.

C.J. Henderson, Florida: Henderson has grasped the title as CB2 in this class for me. He looked really smooth in on-field drills after running a blazing 40-yard dash time for his size.

Cornerback losers

Troy Pride Jr., Notre Dame. It is difficult to name anyone a ‘loser’ because they put so much work into preparing and trying to become the best version of themselves. Pride did not look particularly good in on-field workouts. He otherwise ran a great 40-yard dash time and posted a respectable vertical jump.  

Cameron Dantzler, Mississippi State. Dantzler has his staunch supporters. He is a good player, but the 4.64 second 40-yard dash time will not help his cause. The Bulldog is a long, lean player, which contrasts his run.
