    Getting into this CB group, there's a lot to like. I like each if the top 4. Phillips had a dip in activity in 2016, and I'd like to see Springs improve in that area in general, but both defend the pass very well, and Phillips has star potential as a playmaker. Thomas and Stewart are studs.

    I also like Harding and Fant a lot as slot CB's. Very good all-around players, who should be able to step in and contribute early, because they contribute in so many different ways.

    Parry Nickerson will have to add significant weight, but, if he's able, he also shows a lot of promise. 5'8 is tough to draft, but I wouldn't bet against Lurry making a team in 2018.

    As usual, Slimm, these rankings are excellent.

    I'd like to see Jordan Thomas be more physical. Has a tendency to play not physical enough for me. He ranks #1 among my Senior CB's more by default than because I'm in love with him.

    There's a few who could overtake him for the top spot here by the time it's all said and done.

    Tony Brown is by far the most physically talented corner on this list. Watch out if he ever figures it out.

    Averett is underrated in coverage. He was Bama's best cover corner the last month of the season last year.

    I also really like Harding and Fant. Good eye as usual.
