RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The 2015 first-round draft pick will compete with Newman for a starting job at cornerback. Waynes will need to reduce his pass interference penalties to win the role as he was slow to adjust to NFL rules last season.
Waynes was selected in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, 11th overall. He'll compete for a starting cornernback role in training camp, but likely begins the season as the team's nickel back. He has top-shelf speed (4.31-second 40-yard dash) and a lot of experience in a Michigan State defense that emphasizes physicality, so Waynes should have no trouble taking up a press-corner mentality despite his light frame (6-foot, 186 pounds).
