Draft Scouting Report:

Rating: 82.02 (Long-term starter)

Pro Comparison: Benjamin St-Juste


  • 2022: First-team All-Big 12
  • 2022: Career-high four interceptions (tied-third in Big 12) 


Julius Brents is a long cornerback with a slender frame. He had good ball production this year as a result of getting his eyes back to the quarterback. Tackling was much improved in 2022, but top-end speed remains a concern. He is a high-cut prospect, which generally leads to stiffer transitions across the field for cornerbacks.
