A former five-star recruit from Tampa, Hargreaves should easily compete with Florida State’s Jalen Ramsey for title of top defensive back in the draft, especially if Ramsey declares. In three years with the Gators, Hargreaves managed 121 tackles, 10 interceptions, 27 pass breakups and a forced fumble. In 2015, teams wised up and just generally avoided throwing the ball in his direction.
Barring an awful showing at the NFL Scouting Combine next month, count on Hargreaves being a Top 10 pick and stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates regarding his path to the pros!
