12. Dwight Lowery, San Jose St., 5111, 201, 4.47, 16, 33.5 (CB/S)

One of the better cover corners in the nation who wisely decided to return to school for his senior season. An absolute ball hawk. Can track the ball and come out of nowhere to make the interception. Lowery has very good size with long arms and very good hands for interceptions. Lowery is very athletic, having a uncanny field awareness and has the ability to mirror a WR. Can take the best receiver and close him down....

7. Charles Godfrey, Iowa, 5116, 208, 4.44 (CB/S)

Godfrey, a senior from Iowa, is one of the bigger corner back prospects in the country. He is a well-seasoned corner who possesses all the skills necessary to succeed at the next level. Godfrey has the excellent size with a solid frame and long arms to jam receivers at the line, even at the next level. Physical from beginning to end. Jams receivers and knocks off their routes. Godfrey is not only big and strong, but he's as fast in...

2a. Antoine Cason, Arizona, 5115, 182, 4.49, 20, 35.5 (CB/S)

Cason returned to Tucson and now has 4 years at starting corner for the Wildcats, becoming even more polished and experienced. He improving drastically in each season. All Pac-10 2nd team in 2005, and Al Pac-10 1st team in 2006 and 2007. Good athleticism, excellent instincts, anticipation and awareness have made him almost flawless in coverage. Cason shows very fluid hips, good technique and footwork keeps him with the receiver...

CB in the 2008 Draft: Round 1 top 20 pick

None of these guys have set themselves apart from each other. They all bring additional skills to the board. The problem is this, while the CB position is deep it does not have a group of truly great CBs. So the results is mock drafts have a lot of teams taking risks this year that they would never take in 2007.
