Rashaan Gaulden, Tennessee
For whatever reason, there currently isn’t much buzz on Gaulden, but that will soon change. A Swiss Army knife in the Volunteers’ secondary, he was the starting nickel defender at Tennessee, playing an inside cornerback role.
Gaulden is dripping with natural talent, displaying the athletic twitch and coordination to match wide receivers. Although his emotions get the best of him at times, his fearless, infectious energy is received well among his teammates. He needs to improve his discipline, but his playing speed, toughness and heart belong in the NFL, providing pro coaches a foundation worth developing.
