Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
A 6-2, cover cornerback will get the attention of most coaches. But the Patriots are in a more despairing need for good corners than most NFL teams. Rhodes fits the bill skills-wise and has the proper dimensions, so it's no surprise his name has been floated with the Patriots. He was first team All-ACC last season and is rated as the No. 2 corner on the board by CBSSports.com. He had 39 tackles and three interceptions his junior year. With an eye on the future, the Patriots would be wise to covet the Miami native.
