2 Darius Slay Darius Slay Darius Demetrius Slay, nicknamed "Big Play Slay", is an American football cornerback for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League.

Shut down corner that is underrated and overloaded because the team he is on

''Another player who is very good, but perhaps not quite great enough to be seen as the best cornerback in the game, Darius Slay led the league in interceptions last season with eight (tied with Kevin Byard), and had 13 pass breakups, but he also surrendered three touchdowns and over 700 yards to receivers over the course of the season.'' He'll clean up the coverage much better and look more like the shut down corner in 2018 even if the rest of the defense end up fumbling on a misconnection. - htoutlaws2012

3 Marcus Peters Marcus Peters

''Peters has been a boom or bust player thus far in his career, with an absurd 21 interceptions and 34 pass breakups over his first three seasons, but with 15 touchdowns to offset some of those big plays.
Peters is a corner always looking to make plays, showing up on the field in areas that he has no business being from the play call on the chalk board. If he can iron out the bad plays in his game, he could easily be a contender for this crown but until then, he is too high-variance to overhaul some of these other players.'' - htoutlaws2012

4 Marshon Lattimore Marshon Lattimore


''The impact Marshon Lattimore had on the New Orleans defense was dramatic and he was the single biggest driver of that unit’s transformation in 2017. He didn’t surrender a touchdown all season long and allowed a passer rating of only 51.3 when targeted, including the playoffs.
Lattimore was so good that he drew 1-on-1 assignments against Julio Jones twice during the season, and while Jones did get the better of him at times, it was a back and forth battle in which the rookie did not look out of his depth. When covering receivers not named Julio Jones, the passer rating he allowed was just 42.9, only marginally higher than if the quarterback had just thrown the ball away every play instead.'' - htoutlaws2012

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

''Patrick Peterson may have the hardest assignment in football when it comes to the cornerback position. He draws the Revis role of shadowing No. 1 receivers and has tracked them into the slot, something few corners have ever been asked to do �" even ones that track receivers across the field.
Peterson is good enough, and the difference between him and the rest of the Arizona secondary has usually been significant enough, so much so that he has ranked among the four least-targeted corners in the game four out of the past five years.
Only Jackson allowed a reception less often than Peterson in 2017 and Jackson wasn’t starting, let alone tracking No. 1 receivers the way Peterson was. At his best, Peterson definitely has the quality to be the best corner in the game, but he surrendered four touchdowns in 2017 and can be beaten more than his supporters like to admit.'' - htoutlaws2012

6 Stephon Gilmore Stephon Gilmore

He should be at #1 spot at cornerback

He had the best season of his entire NFL career and he had an amazing season.

He was the highest graded cornerback against top receivers such as Sammy Watkins and DeAndre Hopkins, all who had great seasons.

Number 1 every day

7 A.J. Bouye

No TDs allowed

''A surprise star in 2016, A.J. Bouye parlayed that season into a big contract from the Jacksonville Jaguars last offseason and then backed that up with an even better one, reinforcing his credentials as one of the best in the game. Bouye allowed a passer rating of just 31.6 last season when targeted " the best in the NFL " and didn’t allow a touchdown all year. With Jalen Ramsey in partnership, the Jaguars had the game’s best cornerback duo last year and hope to for seasons to come.'' - htoutlaws2012

8 Casey Hayward Casey Hayward

''He won’t be the first name on most people’s lips, but Casey Hayward may have the best case of any corner to be known as the top cornerback in the game. Last season, his overall PFF grade wasn’t just the highest in the league, it was the second-highest overall grade we have ever seen from a corner, trailing only that otherworldly Revis season of 2009.'' - htoutlaws2012

9 Xavier Rhodes Xavier Rhodes Xavier Rhodes is an American football cornerback for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League.

As a Viking fan I can safely say I don't want him anymore can someone please take him he is the closest thing we have to a cancerous player - RawIsgore

Peepee suck

''The most obvious name that people will expect to see in this debate that won’t feature for PFF beyond explaining why he isn’t in the discussion is Minnesota’s Xavier Rhodes. There is no doubt that Rhodes is a good corner, and he has begun to track No. 1 receivers now, but he is just beaten too often for a player who doesn’t offset that with as many big plays in coverage as some others.
Rhodes surrendered 553 yards in coverage last season, three touchdowns, and had significant yardage hidden in the form of penalties, with his nine penalties ranking inside the top 10 among corners, eight more than somebody like Hayward.'' Yeah Rhodes feel due to the fact he did give up a good chunk yards last year at times covering even #2 like Marvin Jones even. - htoutlaws2012

Lowest completion percentage of any corner in football last year, lead the league in picks despite missing four games and has 11 picks in his last 17 games.

The Contenders

11 Tre'Davious White Tre'Davious White

''Tre’Davious White had the highest PFF coverage grade of any of the draft prospects in his last year of college and picked up in the NFL exactly where he left off, notching an overall grade of 92.0, trailing only Hayward and winning PFF’s Rookie of the Year.'' - htoutlaws2012

12 Marlon Humphrey

Extremely underrated. Great corner with great size and instincts.

Very good first year, even better second year. Star is on the rise.

Should be #1 but some bitch didn't even have him on the list!

13 Kyle Fuller Kyle Fuller Kyle Brandon Fuller is an American football cornerback for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League.

15 Jaire Alexander Jaire Alexander

Number 1 cb in the pack dbs

Honestly I'm not sure about this one

Honestly, he did amazing for his rookie season

16 Richard Sherman Richard Sherman Richard Kevin Sherman is an American football cornerback for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League.

''After Revis, there was Richard Sherman in his prime, and while Sherman is just 30 years old right now, he is coming off an Achilles injury and now plying his trade in a new city, albeit running a similar defensive scheme.
After Sherman’s rookie season, he was either first or second for five straight years in coverage snaps per reception allowed before that Achilles injury that ended his 2017 campaign. Simply put, there was no cornerback harder to complete a pass on than Sherman and that, after all is the primary function of the position. Sherman has also always been an aggressive and physical run defender and has shown the ball skills to punish quarterbacks that do decide to test him in coverage.
At his best, he definitely belongs in this conversation, and may be the only player on this list that has actually sat on that throne, but heading into the 2018 season the question is what player are we going to see post injury? '' - htoutlaws2012

17 Denzel Ward

Has the highest potential at the position.

he's a god

he's a god

Chief is a GOAT


19 Chris Harris Jr. Chris Harris Jr. Christopher Harris Jr. is an American football cornerback for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League.

This list is not accurate. 2018's best Corners were.Gillmore, Fuller and Harris. Very underrated player.A leader of the defense. No one works harder. Has very sound techniques. Stong tackler agaisnt the run. A true throwback. One of the best slot coverage player's in the game.Undrafted FA. Plays with a chip on his back.

20 Tyreek Hill Tyreek Hill

He is the best

29 Vince Wilfork Vince Wilfork Vincent Lamar Wilfork is an American football nose tackle for the Houston Texans of the National Football League.

Greatest cornerback of all time. SO fast and agile. Shutdown every receiver he's been up against. Randy Moss didn't have one catch on him. Wilfork actually had 2 interceptions that game. It was crazy, he jumped extended and caught it and nobody could catch him. G.O.A.T.

37 Jalen Mills

Jalen Mills is a member of the Eagles and member of the super champions Eagles. Jalen Mills is the number one shut down corner in the league he gets 6-14 inercepions a year and never gets hurt. He would be a great pick if fanasy leagues did defensive players.

: *STAR*

The best patriot corner
