3. Cornerback

Considering their youth, experience and level of competition, I was very impressed with Tech’s corners all year, especially the freshman duo of Nigel Bethel and Tevin Madison. Both are very athletic and very aggressive players with noses for the ball. They’re just a year or two away from being great.

Factor in soon-to-be junior Justis Nelson and Tech should be very experienced in the secondary next year.
