Hargreaves is the No. 2 rated cornerback in the 2016 NFL Draft behind Florida State's Jalen Ramsey and is projected to be a top-10 pick. However, he's widely considered to be the best pure cover cornerback prospect in the class.

He becomes the third key Florida junior to declare for the draft, joining running back Kelvin Taylor and wide receiver Demarcus Robinson.

The 5'11", 199 lbs. All-American recorded 33 tackles and four interceptions with four passes defensed this season.
