He doesn’t play with much consistency and is better against the run than the pass, but the flashes are enticing with his body control and heavy hands.8. Corn Elder, CB, Miami (Fla.) (5–10, 183, 4.55)Elder often shadowed the opposing team’s top receiver and did a nice job with his twitched-up athleticism to stay attached at the hip with wideouts.

9. Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma (5–11, 233, 4.65)Perine first introduced himself to college football when he set the FBS single-game record with 427 rushing yards as a freshman in 2014.
