NFL Combine: Defensive Back Measurements


The defensive back position has turned into one of the hardest positions to hold in the NFL. With rule changes, innovative offenses, and the athleticism and skill of WRs, it has become almost impossible to be a lockdown CB. What is even worse is that Safeties have even more responsibility as they have to be able to get in on the run, yet still be the last line of defense on the backend.

The defensive back position this year is the deepest of any position in this year’s combine. You could literally hear the names of 10-12 cornerbacks and 5-6 safeties selected within the 1st 2 rounds. There is so much talent at the defensive back spot this year, top analysts are projecting that you could get a solid or future starting CB all the way in round 4. It is being said that as much as 10 DBs could be taken in round 1 alone. If you want to improve your secondary, this is the year for you to do it.

By most accounts, the top 5 DBs are considered to be, safeties, Malik Hooker of Ohio State, Jamal Adams of LSU, and cornerbacks, Marshon Lattimore of Ohio State, Sidney Jones of Washington, and Marlon Humphrey of Alabama. Others that are expected to be taken in round 1 are Budda Baker of Washington, Quincy Wilson of Florida, and his teammate, Teez Tabor of Florida. This year is really a standout year for DBs with almost too much to name.
