Prince Amukamara


Cornerback is a position of priority during draft weekend as NFL decision makers are always looking for prospects with the ability to play in a variety of coverage packages.  This year’s class of corners looks promising as a number of highly rated prospects have the makings of immediate starters.  On the other hand, the safety class comes with a lot of questions as there are no outstanding prospects.

Amukamara entered the season as one of the highest-rated senior prospects in the nation and did nothing to disappoint scouts. Opposing signal-callers purposely stay away from Amukamara and he regularly shuts down the opposition when they throw his way. He possesses the size, confidence and intelligence to hold down a No. 1 cornerback position in the NFL.  1stRound Prospect
