No Damontae Kazee in 2017? No problem.
The San Diego State Aztecs have made their name in the last couple years by assembling one of the FBS’s best pass defenses, and the flexibility of athletes like the next player on our top 50 is a significant reason for their ascendance.
Kameron Kelly enters 2017 listed atop the SDSU depth chart at cornerback, but he’s spent the last two years contributing as a safety, grabbing five interceptions – including two (here and here) in the dominant Las Vegas Bowl win against Houston – and breaking up six more passes in 2016.
If nothing else, Kelly might be more motivated than anyone else on our list to prove us wrong about his standing here:
