2011 NFL Mock Draft: Prince Amukamara Says He Is The Best CB In The Draft

There are two cornerbacks that could be selected in the top-ten of the upcoming NFL draft. Prince Amukamara and Patrick Peterson are both elite prospects, but on most mocking sites, Peterson is ranked higher than Amukamara. That isn't sitting so well with him. According to our very own mock draft site Mocking the Draft, Amukamara isn't shy about his feeling about his confidence in his abilities.

"I have respect for all the DBs, but there's not a guy I try to model my career after," Amukamara said. "I think anyone who considers themselves great should have their own category."

"I think some don't know what they're talking about or seen me on film," he said. "I guess I'll show them on Tuesday."

"I'm not someone who Googles themselves, but if I see it on ESPN I see it."

That's the kind of confidence you need to be able to go up and grab a pass away from an opposing wide receiver. Dallas is very much in need of help in the defensive secondary, and has been linked to Amukamara in plenty of mock drafts. One would think that they would have to think long and hard about both prospects if they were still on the board when they draft.
