2. Mike Sainristil

Sainristil's versatility to play any corner spot will further his career. The issues about his size are nonsense and besides Mikey plays bigger than his 5'9'' frame. He can be a late first-round pick because of his play and leadership alone. Pro football focus loves him more than others do and Sainristil should be ranked as the top nickel available.

His accomplishments speak for themselves. Sainristil has everything that a coach wants. He will immediately bolster a secondary the second he gets selected. Draft analyst Bucky Brooks agrees and is singing his praises. Mike is the epitome of a prospect who gets overlooked and overachieves in the end.

Sainristil's flip from offense to defense was the best decision that he and the coaching staff could have dreamed of. His primary position is a need for every NFL franchise these days, making him a top priority. Whoever has to replace him in the starting lineup will have legendary shoes to fill.
