24Albert Lewis

Lewis played for 16 seasons. Standing 6-2 with 4.4 speed, Lewis had long reach and a big leap. 20 interceptions in his first 4 seasons. After that, opposing QBs avoided throwing the ball in his direction. He was named as the Chiefs MVP for the 1986 season, 4� - Pro Bowl selection (1987, 1988, 1989, 1990), 1st Team All-Pro (1989, 1990). Voted onto the Chiefs Hall of Fame, he was also a specialist at blocking kicks

25Patrick PetersonPatrick Peterson is an American football cornerback and return specialist for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League.

Gave up one touchdown this year & was on that ridiculous Hail Mary! This dude has shut down haters & is far leagues above Sherman now!

Beyond overrated. Sure, he's good, but he's pitifully overrated and has gotten roasted by middling wide receivers on more than one occasion.

Patrick Peterson is the 2nd best

You go one bad bird!

Carnell should be on everybodys top 10, but I'm betting people forget him. One of only a few players I have ever seen who could line up at CB one week and Safety the next and he was in the same mode as Rod Woodson! - tcfreeman69

Cornel Lake was a strong safety his entire career. He played linebacker in college at UCLA.

30Aeneas Williams

Some these guys ranked ahead of him aren't even in his league. Not a top five all time guy but at least top 15.
