4. Trae Waynes, CB

The top-rated cornerback in the 2015 crop, Waynes is in the mold of a Richard Sherman as that tall, physical, athletic brand of corner that is becoming more and more coveted in the NFL.

Waynes impressed at the NFL Scouting Combine, and since we see him falling to No. 14 to the Dolphins, he has a chance to thrive right off the bat in the No. 2 role opposite perennial Pro Bowler Brent Grimes in a defense that now features Ndamukong Suh.
