97. Jaylen Watkins

Watkins is 6-0, 194 pounds and is the 16th-rated cornerback as he’s projected to be selected in the third or fourth round.

Being timed with a 4.48 40-yard dash, Watkins is described in his CBS.com analysis as having “a lean, athletic build more suited to cornerback. He’s a willing hitter.” He is also willing to be a safety.
