The top three (Lattimore, Wilson and Jones) are separated by a razor-thin margin. Lattimore, though, belongs on top—he already plays like a lock-down cornerback, despite limited college experience, and he packs a punch against the run.

Even the players rounding out the top 15 here are potential rookie starters. Kevin King stormed the combine with a 4.43 40 and the fastest three-cone drill of any corner.
