Like Thomas Graham Jr., Deommodore Lenoir is going to go somewhere in the 5-7 round range. The talented cornerback flew under the radar throughout his career and finished his final two seasons as a member of the All-Pac-12 second team. He was named to the second team by the media as a junior as well as a second-teamer and honorable mention selection by the coaches.
Lenoir was the No. 7 cornerback in the country in the 2017 recruiting class as well as the 64th-best overall recruit, so some may consider him a bit of a letdown because he wasn’t a superstar.
But that’s not the case.
Lenoir pieced together a solid career with 158 career tackles, four tackles for loss, six interceptions, and 21 pass deflections. He was consistent throughout his career and only got better as he gained experience in 2019 and 2020.
Denver needs a cornerback and won’t be able to take one in the first round because of its need at quarterback (I’m predicting Justin Fields to the Broncos), so I could see it waiting until the mid-to-late rounds to try and steal a hidden gem. Lenoir could be just that.
Round six to the Broncos seems like a good fit for the 5-11, 195-pounder.
