Sheldrick Redwine, Miami

Like Kentucky, the Miami Hurricanes have some guys in their secondary who will find a home in the NFL. Sheldrick Redwine is one of them. While many know his Hurricane teammate, Jaquan Johnson, not as many are familiar with Redwine.

Noted as primarily a fifth round prospect, Redwine is also quite an athlete like the previously mentioned Tell. At the Combine, Redwine ran a swift 4.44-second 40-yard dash. He also put up an impressive pair of jumps, with a 39.0-inch vertical and 130.0-inch broad.

Also like Tell, Redwine has ideal size, standing 6-feet tall. His weight is a bit more balanced than Tell, and he’s a little more versatile, too.

Redwine is a former cornerback and possesses great ball skills. He’s aggressive both when going for the ball and helping in run support. In 2018, he had a balanced line with 64 tackles, 3.0 sacks, three interceptions, two pass breakups, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

The biggest knock on Redwine is when it comes to coverage. It appears to be more of an effort issue, overall, as he looks a step behind at times. Like many of the guys on this list, the positives outweigh the negatives and the right coaching could right the ship.
