The man who wears Deion Sanders‘ number and shares the name of the reigning NFL MVP cracks the list at number four, and rightfully so.

During 12 games in 2019, Lamar Jackson racked up 40 tackles, a sack, three picks, and 12 pass breakups en route to edging out the aforementioned Michael Ojemudia for Second Team All-Big Ten honors.
That gives him 123 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions, 22 pass breakups, three forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery in 40 games for the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Like Ojemudia, Jackson is one of those guys that are expected to come off of draft boards during Round 4 of the NFL Draft or sometime after. He’s six-foot-two. He tips the scales at 208 pounds, and he ran the 40 in 4.58 seconds after showcasing a 36.5-inch vertical and throwing up ten reps on the bench press.
