After an impressive performance at the NFL Scouting Combine, analysts agree that Michigan State's Trae Waynes is the top cornerback prospect in this year's draft class.

"He's a bump-and-run cornerback with the length, deep speed and confidence to handle himself down the field against speed," NFL.com wrote in their scouting report. "Waynes plays too handsy for NFL officials and that could show up on Sundays. His 4.31 40, smooth hips and overall fluidity displayed at the combine could make him a much earlier pick in the draft than previously projected. Waynes carries a very high ceiling."

Any one of LSU's Jalen Collins, Wake Forest's Kevin Johnson and Washington's Marcus Peters could be the second corner drafted after Waynes.

Below are the top 5 cornerback prospects, according to NFL Media's Mike Mayock:

  1. Trae Waynes, Michigan State
  2. Jalen Collins, LSU
  3. Marcus Peters, Washington
  4. Kevin Johnson, Wake Forest
    T-5. Byron Jones, Connecticut
    T-5. Eric Rowe, Utah> READ: TOP OFFENSIVE TACKLE PROSPECTS
