2020 NFL Draft Defensive Back Rankings: Don’t Sleep on Kristian Fulton

2020 NFL Draft Defensive Back Rankings: LSU's Kristian Fulton

Getty 2020 NFL Draft Defensive Back Rankings: LSU's Kristian Fulton

Welcome to our 2020 NFL Draft defensive back rankings. In this column, we will be examing both the top cornerback and safety prospects in this year’s upcoming draft class.

Speaking of top prospects, no defensive back is more highly-thought of at the moment than Jeff Okudah out of Ohio State. His praise is rightfully deserved, as he dominated for the Buckeyes this season and offers upside and traits reminiscent of Jalen Ramsey.

However, while fans and scouts drool over the possibility of adding Okudah to their secondary, they continue to sleep on a certain cornerback out of LSU. Maybe people don’t give Kristian Fulton the respect he deserves, simply due to the fact that he lacks some of the high-end statistics that the other top defensive back prospects have. Then again, it’s hard to get stats when quarterbacks avoid you at all costs.

Reminder: These are player rankings, not a Mock Draft. Just because we may grade a player higher on our board than another player, doesn’t mean we projected them to be the higher selection come draft day.
