This is based on PFF's grading system.

1. Jaire Alexander, Green Bay Packers
2. Jalen Ramsey, Los Angeles Rams
3. Marlon Humphrey, Baltimore Ravens

4. Xavien Howard, Miami Dolphins
Howard is one of the best playmaking cornerbacks that the NFL has to offer. Since entering the league in 2016, 18.7% of his targets in coverage have resulted in a pass breakup or interception, leading all cornerbacks who have been targeted at least 150 times over those five years. Howard’s 2020 performance put that playmaking ability on full display, with double-digit pass breakups and interceptions to go along with an 89.6 coverage grade.


14. Byron Jones, Miami Dolphins
Jones matched his interception total across the first five seasons of his career last year with Miami, but it was his worst season from a production allowed standpoint since making the switch to cornerback in 2018. Jones allowed 1.4 yards per coverage snap with Miami in 2020 — double his 0.7 yards per coverage snap average across the 2018 and 2019 seasons in Dallas. He battled injuries early in the season, which didn’t help in the adjustment to a man-heavy coverage scheme under Brian Flores. The hope for Miami will be that he gets back toward the player who earned a five-year, $82.5 million contract last offseason.

This almost always seems to be the rule and not the exception. You pay King of the Hill bags of money to a corner your front office didn’t draft and you are gasping for relief once he breaks the top 20...we did it!

He’s basically a politician in pads and cleats. The investor goes all in on his smoke & mirrors.

:haha

Now we are stuck in a position where the corner we actually picked ourselves and said hey, come begin your career with us, is performing at a significantly better rate than the out of town, over paid mercenary guy who just joined the team. That won’t cause any friction when X’s agent gets to go crazy on contract details.

I never liked the Jones signing. Too much of a Pandora’s box. I loathe the idea of overpaying defensive wide receivers.
