The value of the cornerback position has been hotly debated as of late. PFF seems to be on a mission to convince people that coverage is actually far more important to a defense’s success than pass rush, and if that’s the case, cornerbacks may be the most important position on that side of the ball.
Regardless of what you think about the value of cornerbacks, it’s clear teams view it as a pretty high priority. Cornerbacks salaries have been on the rise for years now, and some teams—like the Detroit Lions—are willing to spend a top-five pick on the position if there’s a player that justifies it.
So this week on the PODcast we finished our yearly LISTCAST by ranking the top 10 cornerbacks in the NFL today. You’ll see a lot of familiar faces on our list, and a couple of up-and-comers.
After that, we chat about the Lions by answering your questions. Is there any chance the shortened offseason puts Jeff Okudah on the bench to start the season? Which top player on the Lions would you trade if you had to?
Plus some fourth of July chat, are most-hated non-football rivals and why some of us are #TeamNeverPunt.
