2015 Cornerback Prospects

#15, Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State


QB / RB / FB / WR / TE / OT / OG / C / DE / DT / OLB / ILB / CB / FS / SS / K / P


It seems like every year the cornerback class is deep. This year is no different. There have been plenty of corners drafted deep into Day Three who have had an impact for their teams in recent years, and I see a similar outcome this time around. While there doesn't appear to be an elite cornerback prospect, three or four should hear their names called in round one.
