  Draft Scout by Conference

  Ohio State's eight first-round defensive backs selected over the past decade are easily the most among the DBU contenders. However, it has not recruited a first-round defensive back - or even one selected on the first two days of the draft - since Okudah in 2017. Every other contender for the ongoing title of DBU has produced at least one pick in the top three rounds in the past two drafts. LSU, Virginia Tech and Washington have each produced two. The Tigers, Hokies, Alabama and Florida all developed first-round picks.

The Crimson Tide are the only one from that group currently projected to have a first-round DB in April's draft. The list of contenders to sneak into the top 32 picks includes secondary athletes from Illinois, Maryland, Mississippi State and South Carolina. Utah's Clark Phillips III - the OSU decommit who represents the biggest hole in the defense over the past two seasons - also has an outside chance to make the first round. That deficiency was still being addressed this winter, when OSU added former Ole Miss cornerback Davison Igbinosun and former Syracuse safety Ja'Had Carter through the transfer portal. Secondary coach Tim Hinton acknowledge the need to ramp up competition, especially in the cornerback room. "During the recruiting process, we try to get the best guys in the country - to make sure the room is deep, the room is always upgraded, and make sure we keep the competition good," Hinton said earlier this spring. - Cleveland Plain Dealer
