Doug Farrar is an excellent analyst and writer for SI. He recently ranked the best CBs in the NFL.
There’s no doubt that this is a renaissance era for the cornerback position. With the NFL turning into more and more of a passing league with every year, the best cornerbacks are worth more than ever — no matter where on the field they play. Our six top players at the position all play outside for the most part, but the addition of two slot defenders jives with a predominant NFL trend. These days, most teams travel with three starting cornerbacks. Here, without further ado, are the 10 players we feel play the position at the highest possible level.
Any Eagles make it?
Wow, that high praise indeed.
Nolan Carroll was honorable mention for his 2013 performance with the Dolphins. No wonder he’s been so impressive this spring and summer.
