The NFL Draft Breakdown podcast crew got back together this past week and talked about defensive backs. Seth Cox and Justin Higdon were joined by Bleacher Report's Ian Wharton, who seems to specialize in defensive backs.

They talked about Jalen Ramsey, who is going to be one of the top picks in the draft.Wharton really likes him more as a safety than as a cornerback. Wharton believes he is the first real star safety prospect since Eric Berry and Earl Thomas.

In terms of shutdown corners, they say there might not really be one. They say Mackensie Alexander might be that guy, but there are concerns.

Wharton says William Jackson III and Vernon Hargrave III are probably the best two corners in the class, but even they are not going to be good in every scheme. Wharton believes pretty much all the corners in this class are Day 2 picks.
