Based on ability shown in college? No higher than 8th for sure, maybe 11th?

I'd take any of these guys at their peak in college over Farley's peak: Fuller, Fuller, Hosley, Hall, Flowers, Harris, Williams.

To be completely honest, at their college peak I'd put him on the same level as Stroman, Facyson, Carmichael, Green, Whitaker, Exum in terms of what he's capable of delivering on the field.

Farley will get drafted based on measurables and the improvement he showed last year. He's great in coverage but leaves a lot to be desired in run support which is the difference maker. All those guys listed with the exception of maybe Hosley truly locked down the boundary including stopping the run, Farley never did that.

Unfortunately I feel like Hokie fans will never look back fondly on Farley unless he blows up in the NFL. When you think about what he's best known for right now its:
- Being a root cause of the worst season in modern history
- His injury problems heavily contributing to the ending a 15 year streak over UVA and losing the Coastal and bowl game
