Being a product of the LSU, confidence is something that comes naturally to the players. Just look at Joe Burrow for example. He was a bright start during his college years. He won many awards and championships with LSU. The quarterback then led the Cincinnati Bengals all the way to the Super Bowl game.

Derek Stingley Jr. also ozzes that LSU machismo. The young defender claims to be the best cornerback in the 2022 NFL draft. “I know myself and I know that when I’m at the best version of myself, I’m the greatest,” said Stingley.

The six feet tall and 190 lbs defender has a Prospect Grade of 6.5. He is uniquely gifted with size, speed, and explosiveness. This is the type of CB that an NFL team wants in their defensive lineup. But only time will tell if he truly is the greatest cornerback in this year’s NFL draft. He has the skill, but can he hang where the big boys play?
