Caleb Farley, Virginia Tech University

In the last article, I looked at the three potential cornerback options for the Saints at the No. 28 pick. They included Asante Samuel, Jr., Tyson Campbell, and Jaycee Horn. I excluded Caleb Farley because, in every projection, he goes ahead of No. 28.

Farley ranges anywhere from No. 9 to No. 16. That means that if the Saints are serious about wanting Farley they are going to have to move up near No. 10 which would be a tall task. It would take several other draft picks.

In 23 games spanning his freshman and sophomore seasons, Farley has six interceptions for 14 yards and a touchdown. He also had 56 tackles, 19 passes defended, and 1.0 sack. Farley was a standout cornerback at VT.

According to Joe Marino at The Draft Network, “Farley brings a rare blend of physical traits in terms of size, length, quickness, fluidity, and athleticism that he pairs with exceptional man coverage skills. Farley has a full toolbox of traits to develop into a shutdown corner.”
