Cornerback Rankings Going Into The 2019 NFL Combine

By

5. Trayvon Mullen, Clemson 6-1, 186 (2)

Career Statistics: 93 tackles, 2 sacks, 4.5 tackles for loss, 4 interceptions, 7 broken up passes

Why Trayvon Mullen Is Here On The List: He’s more than just his fantastic performance against Alabama in the national championship. While he might not be the perfect prospect, and he might need to take a few NFL lumps, he’s simply a solid cover corner with all the skills and all the quickness to keep on growing.

Nah, he’s not going to come up with the big pop or be all that physical, but he can cover, and he can move.

What The NFL Types Want To See: Everything might come down to the board and the interview process. He’ll look great throughout all of the workouts, but just how ready is he going to be early on? A good bench and explosiveness in the jumping drills will help.

Bottom Line: Ask him to go out there and cover a receiver, and he’ll be terrific. Ask him to make a big pop or be an island corner who can take out an elite No. 1 target, and he’s not going to quite be that. But everything else is in place to be a rock-solid starter.
