The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / NFL / Top 5 Cornerbacks in the 2017 NFL Draft: 2/23/17

Top 5 Cornerbacks in the 2017 NFL Draft: 2/23/17

Top Cornerbacks in the 2017 NFL Draft!

Cornerback is one of the most talented positions in this draft, and I believe this draft will produce much more than five quality cornerbacks. The talent level here in this group is amazing and the talent extends well past just five guys.

 

1). Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State

Height: 6-0. Weight: 192.
Projected 40 Time: 4.50.

Most experts have Lattimore ranked at number 2 or 3, I believe from what I have seen so far that Lattimore is a complete corner in this draft. He is excellent in coverage with good size and speed, and he has the skill set of a No. 1 cover corner in the NFL.

2). Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama
Height: 6-1. Weight: 198.
Projected 40 Time: 4.48.

Humphrey is great at preventing separation with the receiver, the reason I have him behind Lattimore are his ball skills. He struggled at times with 50/50 balls, and that showed up in Alabama’s game with Ole Miss. Humphrey will be a top notch corner, though, Humphrey can cover any position on the field. He is big enough to take away the deep routes and quick enough to guard the slot.

3). Sidney Jones, CB, Washington
Height: 6-0. Weight: 180.
Projected 40 Time: 4.52.

Sidney Jones could very well end up being the best corner in the draft, he is great at preventing separation, and he is fast enough to run with the receiver also. He plays his position with unquestioned toughness and is not afraid to play man press, but he is also capable of playing zone also.

 

4). Adoree’ Jackson, CB, USC
Height: 5-11. Weight: 185.
Projected 40 Time: 4.42.

Jackson is yet another corner that I expect to have a significant impact in the NFL. He is an electrifying player at corner and also as a return man. Proved how good he was in the Trojans season-opening game against Alabama when he shut down Bama’s number one WR Calvin Ridley.

5). Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida
Height: 6-1. Weight: 213.
Projected 40 Time: 4.50.

Wilson is another excellent corner in this draft, he has a great skill set and can cover any position on the field. Wilson has excellent ball skills and is superb at preventing separation.
