I am absolutely shocked that no thread has been created for DBs. Although we desperately need weapons and protection on offense, it'd be a little disingenuous to believe that cornerbacks and safeties can't and won't be targeted in the first two rounds. So here are a few names that could be on Carolina's radar:
Darqueze Dennard (Mich. St.) 6'0", 190 lbs
He's a corner is more than willing to come down from his assignment and smack running backs in the mouth. While he likely doesn't possess top-end speed, it's his ability to read offenses and his instincts that makes him a valuable commodity for defenses.
Kyle Fuller (V-Tech) 6'0", 195 lbs
Virginia Tech seems to always produce solid corners and safeties for the NFL, and Fuller might be the next shutdown corner. Fuller seems to have a grasp on routes as there were moments in 2013 where he outclassed receivers by getting to the ball first.
Jason Verrett (TCU) 5'10", 178 lbs
E.J. Gaines (Mizzou) 5'11", 197 lbs
Jaylen Watkins (Florida) 6'0", 188 lbs
Watkins for the past two seasons has been somewhat of a sleeper for The Gators' defense. After Robertson went down with an injury and a suspension, Jaylen played well above average in his place. He has good size and speed for the position and knows how to properly tackle.
Deone Bucannon (Wash. St.) 6'0", 209 lbs
Aaron Colvin (Oklahoma) 6'0", 180 lbs
Marcus Robertson (Florida) 6'0", 181 lbs
Deion Belue (Alabama) 5'11", 185 lbs
Antone Exum (V-Tech) 6'1", 226 lbs
Exum is a versatile prospect who has played both corner and safety. Despite only playing three games in 2013, his presence was immensely missed. Antone remains a raw talent but worth the risk in the mid-rounds.
Calvin Pryor (Louisville) 6'1", 213 lbs
Dontae Johnson (N.C. State) 6'1", 191 lbs
Rashaad Reynolds (Oregon St.) 5'11", 182 lbs
Andre Hal (Vanderbilt) 6'0", 183 lbs
Terrance Mitchell (Oregon) 6'0" 190 lbs
Keith McGill (Utah) 6'2", 202 lbs
Justin Gilbert (Oklahoma St.) 6'0", 200 lbs
Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix (Alabama) 6'1", 205 lbs
Clinton-Dix is the unanimously the best safety in otherwise a less-than-stellar draft for the position. He's a legitimate playmaker when he's roaming free. He can track the ball fairly well in flight and truck far bigger receivers and tight ends.
