21 Ronnie Lott

Thought this guy was a safety

The best hitter ever!.

22 Herb Adderley

He was the first player in superbowl history to get a defensive TD. the original shutdown cornerback

23 Cortland Finnegan
24 Patrick Peterson Patrick Peterson Patrick 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

Good cb should be at least top 15 if not 10 - lucassass

25 Albert 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

27 Carnell Lake

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.

28 Lem Barney

Should be in top 10!

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.

35 Malcolm Butler Malcolm Butler Malcolm Terel Butler is an American football cornerback for the New England Patriots of the National Football League.

He's not the best but he's done something a lot of great corners can't say they've done and that's saving the SUPERBOWL

Not the best but makes the biggest plays when they matter the most
