Top 10 Cornerbacks in N.F.L. |
Andy Benoit - Friendly Disclaimer: The following list is influenced largely -– but not strictly -– by film study of all 32 teams from the 2010 season. Stats weren’t acknowledged, but players with poor numbers generally don’t make top 10 lists anyway. Vague enough for you? Criteria for top 10 lists tend to be. That’s why most of you will have no trouble finding some disagreement with what you’re about to read. (HansDat note: Jabari Greer wins a "participant ribbon" honorable mention.)
