Washington, D.C., NFTC: Top 5 DBs

CLIFTON, Va. -- A look at the top five defensive backs at Saturday's Nike Football Training Camp at Centreville High.

1. Robbie Robinson, 2016 5-9, 165, Hampton (Va.) Phoebus

Skinny: Although he is not the biggest cornerback, Robinson is one of the best in his class. He is tough and fearless. Robinson has also added a good amount of muscle during the offseason and it showed when he was in man coverage, as he was able to jam several receivers. He also showed a quick, smooth backpedal and made several plays on the ball.

2. Levonta Taylor, 2016, 5-10, 175, 2016, Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes

Skinny: Taylor is a great competitor and plays with a swagger. He is an extremely physical corner and does a nice job of getting in and out of his backpedal smoothly. Taylor also has quick hips and great coverage awareness, which allow him to blanket receivers. He showed why he is one of the cornerbacks in his class.

3. Marcus Lewis, 2015, 6-2, 180, Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga

Skinny: Lewis is a big, physical cornerback, who could grow into a safety. He is strong and very aggressive. Lewis really explodes in and out of his backpedal and covers a lot of ground in secondary. The Florida commit also has good ball skills and a knack for making big plays.

4. Allan Koikoi, 6-foot, 180, Brooklandville (Md.) St. Pauls

Skinny: Koikoi came into the event as a virtual unknown, but was undoubtedly one of the top on Saturday. He has good size and was very physical at the snap of the ball, often jamming receivers and throwing them off their routes. Koikoi is also very athletic, runs extremely well and has great instincts. He will be a steal for someone at the next level.

5. Wayne Davis, 2016, 5-11, 170, Norfolk (Va.) Lake Taylor Skinny: Davis frustrated receivers all day. His athleticism and instincts were on full display Saturday. He is very fundamentally sound and looked comfortable in both man and zone coverage . He also has very long arms, which allow him to make plays many corners his size cannot. He added an offer from Clemson last week and more are on the way.
