No. 2: Gareon Conley, OSU
Here comes the first of two Ohio State cornerbacks, or should I just call it DBU (Defensive Back University).
Gareon Conley comes in at No. 2 on this list, grading out with similar size to Marlon Humphrey of Alabama. His coverage skills are really good, usually using inside leverage to push receivers against the boundary, per Lance Zierlein of NFL.com.
Conley is primarily a press corner who has the versatility to be utilized at different cornerback positions. His lack of run support this past season will likely keep him from being the No. 1 overall spot on this big board.
The ex-Buckeye cornerback only allowed 14 catches for 159 yards in 2016. Conley will need to improve his run support and tackling in order to be drafted in the top-15.
Not helping his case is also a rape investigation that’s allegedly ongoing on Conley. This might scare teams into dropping him lower on this list.
Regardless, his one year of production and on-field talent will likely have teams salivating over him.
