ESPN.com SEC Reporter Edward Aschoff recently ranked the best defensive backs in the SEC for 2017 and pegged Alabama's Minkah Fitzpatrick at No. 1. Here's what he had to say:

1. Minkah Fitzpatrick, S/CB, Alabama: Arguably the nation's most versatile defensive back, Fitzpatrick can play every position in Alabama's secondary. He started the spring at corner, but moved to safety. In two seasons, Fitzpatrick has eight interceptions and a school-record four interceptions returned for touchdowns. Fitzpatrick, the No. 2 player on Mel Kiper Jr.'s 2018 Big Board, can be a stalking ball hawk in the very back of Alabama's defense or he can rough things up in the box with the big boys.
Here is the complete Top 5, according to Aschoff:

1. Minkah Fitzpatrick, S/CB, Alabama
2. Ronnie Harrison, S, Alabama
3. Mike Edwards, S, Kentucky
4. Carlton Davis, CB, Auburn
5. Duke Dawson, CB/S, Florida

Would bet strong money that KT2 will get drafted higher than any of them after next season.

At last count LSU has 13 dbs in the NFL compared to Bama's 9 so STFU.

Ronnie Harrison may be the most athletic, but he has a long ways to go still.
