It would be a stunner if he’s not the first DB chosen. He finished his career with 11 interceptions and 17 pass breakups.

CB Vontae Davis Illinois 5-11 203

He might sneak into the bottom of the first round, but there are questions about his size despite 21 career interceptions.

With 11 career interceptions, he could be the only safety to go in the first round because he can cover running backs and tight ends.
