5 cornerback prospects that are great fits for the Colts
By Noah Compton
Cory Trice Jr. may just be the best athlete you haven't heard about— until now. The Boilermaker alum is a freak athlete who battled injuries amidst his five-year collegiate career, yet showed promising flashes during his 3.5 seasons as a starter.
The Kentucky-native switched back and forth from corner to safety before eventually finding his footing as a cornerback. Regardless, Trice Jr. possesses great versatility and can be used as a swiss-army knife for as far as gameplanning goes. Pair that with his top-tier athleticism and at the very least you have yourself a great special teamer for years to come.
Trice Jr.'s stock has fluctuated from the middle rounds of Day 3 (rounds 5-6) to late Day 2, so you're not drafting him with an expectation of becoming a defensive starter early on. When it comes to expectation based on draft selection in this scenario, you should always bet on athletes. His biggest concern is that of his health, so given a healthy start to his NFL career, the sky is the limit for Trice Jr.
