Round 1, Pick 32: Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson
By this point in the draft, most of the top secondary prospects will have already been taken. This includes Malik Hooker, Marshon Lattimore and Marlon Humphrey. With the final pick in the first round, New Orleans must go the cornerback route to bolster a lowly (but greatly-improving) pass defense. To me, minus those prospects listed above, Tankersley has the highest ceiling for any lockdown cornerback in this draft class.
His 6’1″ lengthy frame gives him the size to compete with any receiver and even shut some down when he enters the league. He absolutely shut down Louisville in a crucial matchup last season, making way for his draft stock to skyrocket. His game models that of Richard Sherman combined with Delvin Breaux, and he will only get better the more he plays.
