A couple of early takeaways...

1. Alabama look very strong again. This might be the best secondary they've rolled out since Saban has been there.

2. This CB class looks very strong. If we decide to move on from Trufant after this year there are bunch of talented boundary corners here.

3. The QB, RB and WR classes look far stronger in 2020 than was on offer this year.

4. Good job we addressed OL this year.

5. I'm not sure there is a Nick Bosa or Josh Allen but the edge class looks deep.

I really like this years group of corners, particularly outside guys. I think the top end talent is far superior to 2019. The depth might be better too.

Kristian Fulton is my #1 CB

The Florida corners have a ton of upside as does Jaylon Johnson at Utah. I like Bryce Hall and Mike Hampton the best at this point. Hampton is probably a guy who will be overlooked due to level of competition, but I think he's the complete package.

Corner and Edge looked stacked in the 2020 class, so I'm intrigued to see how it plays out this year.

We still need help at all three levels of the defense and next year needs to be a defensive draft.

There is the disclaimer.  If we move on from Freeman after this year and Ollison and Ito don’t impress,  and Falcons Defensive Draft board blows up before our first pick - D’Andre Swift is a special, special RB who will be an NFL Star.  He’s much better than Josh Jacobs who went #24 this year to Raiders.

Yahoo Sports' Eric Edholm was surprised that Clemson redshirt junior LB/S Isaiah Simmons did not declare for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Simmons (6'4/225) easily could have been drafted if he declared, but he opted to stay in an attempt to improve his draft stock and maybe win another national title along the way. Simmons' name resurfaced today after a video showed him in a race with Clemson RB Travis Etienne where Simmons matched him step for step. The hybrid defensive player has all the speed in the world, and he'll be competing for one of the 32 first-round picks next year.

Jaylon Johnson, DeMarkus Acy, and Damon Arnette are all good corners I would look at.

I've got Johnson on there. I think he's someone who is going to fly up the boards this year and test really well.
