NFL teams look to the FCS for defensive backs

No position may stock this year's NFL draft as much as defensive back.

Former NFL executive and scout Mark Dominik predicted on ESPN Radio on Wednesday - the eve of the three-day, seven-round draft in Philadelphia - that as many as 20 DBs will be selected in the first two rounds.

NFL teams regularly look to FCS programs for defensive backs. In the last five years, they have selected 15 cornerbacks - more than any other position - and nine safeties from the subdivision. The 2012 draft was particularly bountiful with a combined nine picks.
