The class of cornerbacks for the 2015 NFL Draft is one, thus far, that is very undetermined. Many top players have faced injury or off-the-field concerns, and up to this point, there is no definitive No. 1 cornerback for this class. Now that the season has wrapped up for college football, events like the Senior Bowl and the NFL Scouting Combine are where rankings can fluctuate, and prospects look to separate themselves from the other competition.

Eric Rowe, a lesser-known and seldom-discussed cornerback out of Utah, has a strong chance to not only be selected on day one of the 2015 NFL Draft but be the first secondary player off the board. A converted safety, Rowe will have a chance to show off his physical and instinctive skills at the Senior Bowl.

Can Oregon repeat as Pac 12 champs? A lot will depend on this man

Defending National Runner-Up Oregon will look to defend their Pac-10 crown in the new look Pac-12. They return a ton of talent but must rely on two new faces to step up into big time roles this season. Meanwhile teams like Arizona State, and Cal are hoping their new QB’s can step in and sync up with their star WR’s quickly so that they might challenge the Ducks. (more…)
