Riser No. 1
Cam Hart - CB (Notre Dame)
The Vikings always seem to be in the market for a cornerback around draft day, and 2024 looks no different.
There's an outside chance Minnesota addresses it in the first round this year, but if they wait until the second or until one of their fourth-round picks to address it, one prospect who should be somewhere in that range after his Senior Bowl week is Notre Dame's Cam Hart.
Hart has great size at 6-foot-2 and 207 pounds. He moves very well for a man so big, and that was evident during the one-on-one portions of Senior Bowl practice.
Hart displayed the ability to play both zone and press-man coverage and won the majority of those reps. Hart showcased his physicality and used his big frame to throw receivers off their route and get the advantage when the ball was in the air. Hart also displayed great technique and patience.
These traits all show up on film, and looking back at his career, we'll also put a green check mark by his name, as his 90 tackles, 17 pass breakups, and two interceptions in his career speak to the type of all-around talent he is.
The Vikings need at least one more corner, and Minnesota defensive coordinator Brian Flores prefers cornerbacks who can play on an island.
Hart displayed those traits at the Senior Bowl, and the Vikings surely bumped him up their rankings a few notches because of it.
