  • Antoine Winfield Jr., DB, Minnesota

    Winfield had flashed throughout his Minnesota career; he just repeatedly got injured. The defensive back with NFL bloodlines finally enjoyed a clean bill of health this season and thrived on the back end with 83 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, three sacks, and an eye-popping seven interceptions.

    At 5-foot-10 and around 200 pounds, he'll be on the smaller size for the traditional safety position. However, that position really doesn't exist anymore in the NFL. Safeties have essentially become "slot defenders" who occasionally play the deep portions of the field. Winfield isn't the twitchiest defensive back in this class, yet his instincts and ball skills are outstanding, and he's a force in the run game.

    In 2018, he had 17 tackles and a pick in four games. In 2017, two pass breakups and 20 tackles in four contests. Staying on the field all season for the Golden Gophers and loading the stat sheet was huge for Winfield's draft stock.

  • Reads the game really well...

    I worry about his physicality.

    Minnesota have two outstanding WRs in the draft as well.
