CB Cameron Dantzler

Mississippi State | Junior

Round 3, Pick 25

Dantzler became one of the SEC's top cornerbacks under former MSU defensive backs coach Terrell Buckley, who was a star corner himself with Florida State before moving on to a 13-year career in the NFL. Dantzler, a Louisiana native, was a high school quarterback and defensive back before heading to Starkville. He redshirted the 2016 season before earning a key role as a reserve the following season (25 tackles, two for loss, three pass breakups). His first interception as a collegian was of Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Lamar Jackson in the Bowl. Dantzler was a 13-game starter as a redshirt sophomore, recording 43 tackles, two for loss, two interceptions, and nine pass breakups. He started just nine games in his junior season but tied for the team lead with two interceptions and eight pass breakups to go along with 40 tackles, two for loss. -
