Matt Miller really likes what Kool-Aid McKinstry has done this season.

Miller listed McKinstry as the top corner in the 2024 NFL Draft class Monday. What stands out about McKinstry is his playmaking ability, quickness, and length.

“I’m sticking with the cornerback who started the season as my top player at the position. No, McKinstry hasn’t been perfect, but no cornerback in this class is standing out like Sauce Gardner did in his final year (No. 4 pick in 2022), and I haven’t really seen a true riser like Devon Witherspoon (No. 5 pick in 2023). McKinstry is simply the best of what looks like an average group.

“He has playmaking instincts, really good length at 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds and plenty of quickness. McKinstry is my No. 12 overall player in the class and projects well as a man coverage corner at the next level.”

McKinstry and Alabama are coming off of a big win against Tennessee. The Crimson Tide held the Volunteers scoreless in the second half after going into halftime down 20-7.

McKinstry has accounted for 20 total tackles, 1 tackle for loss, and 5 passes defended. He has not missed a game this season and is a staple on the Crimson Tide secondary.

Do you agree with Miller’s assessment of McKinstry?
