Shaq Thompson. 21. player. 56. Shaq Thompson didn’t do himself any favors at the combine. The versatile defender tried himself at multiple positions, but didn’t measure very well at any of them. Measuring in with a RAS Grade below 5.00 at both safety and linebacker as a player banking on his athleticism, Thompson’s supporters are going to have to go back to the tape. The Bengals have several needs they could address at this point, but they opt to go for a plug and play defender. Thompson’s measurements were poor, but his knack for finding the football can find a place in any creative defense and he ends up in a good spot.. Linebacker. Washington

Marcus Peters. 22. player. 55. The Steelers still land their guy in Peters, the only corner in this draft who can probably start from day one. Peters walked a fine line with his combine performance, but ultimately it was about checking the boxes and Peters went about doing that well. Measuring in at just below average with his RAS grade, Peters will have to hope teams are smart enough to go back to tape. Like <strong><a href=. Cornerback. Washington

The Panthers have been living off their defensive front for a long time. With even that in danger of losing some of its juice, they’re going to need to patch together a better secondary with the quickness. I preferred to go offense with the Panthers, which is a bigger need and why I went with Funchess in the last mock draft, but he’s gone and the smaller school product Quinten Rollins put on a strong showing in drills at the combine. He wasn’t up to par for his measurements, scoring only a 2.32 RAS Grade, but that was almost entirely due to a poor showing in the 40. Rollins is a strong prospect that should upgrade the weakest part of an otherwise strong defense.. Cornerback. Miami (Ohio). Quinten Rollins. 25. player. 87
