LSU football defensive back Derek Stingley Jr will likely be a top 5-10 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

The Louisiana native will almost certainly be the first cornerback selected.

In other words, the stage is already set for Stingley, who will be a junior this fall, to be a big star at the next level. He’ll be the next great LSU defensive back that serves as the cornerstone of an NFL franchise’s defense.

But what if Stingley could be an even bigger star than that? What if he could be the face of the NFL?
