After a standout collegiate career at Alabama cornerback Patrick Surtain II is preparing to be a possible top-10 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. The son of former NFL DB Patrick Surtain Sr. headlines a strong CB class this year and is considered the favorite to be the first at his position off of the board.

NFL Draft odds at FanDuel Sportsbook provide insight on when Surtain may hear his name called. His draft position over/under is set at 10.5, with -106 on the over to hit and -116 on the under.

Those odds point to two likely landing spots in the Dallas Cowboys (No. 10) and New York Giants (No. 11).

Teams in this year's top 10 are expected to put an emphasis on offense. Four of the top quarterbacks may go in the first few picks with the best receivers and offensive lineman. The Carolina Panthers (No. 8) and Denver Broncos (No. 9) could be players for Surtain but seem likely to use their top pick on other needs.

Surtain's draft fate is likely up to the Cowboys at 10. They've been long rumored as a suitor for the talented Crimson Tide CB. He'd immediately add playmaking to a secondary that needs it.

Surtain recorded 4 interceptions (including a pick-6) and 24 passes defensed in three years at Alabama while annually facing top SEC competition. He can make plays not in coverage as well, registering 6.0 tackles for loss and 4 forced fumbles during his three seasons with the Tide.

It'd be hard to imagine Dallas passing on Surtain. He'd immediately elevate a defense that placed in the bottom 10 of Football Outsiders' pass defense DVOA metric and was ranked as the fourth-worst secondary by ProFootballFocus.

Surtain would form a promising young duo with Cowboys rookie Trevon Diggs that could wreak havoc on the lesser QBs of the NFC East for years to come.
