In the second of a three-part series, we take a look and rank the cornerbacks that could catch the eyes of the Dallas Cowboys front office. The team needs a top-flight cornerback to go along with rising names like Trevon Diggs and Donovan Wilson in the secondary but they seem to be doing their due diligence on all of the corner prospects.
The top names shouldn’t surprise anyone but where I have them ranked could come as a surprise a few. As the NFL draft is almost upon us, having a quick reference guide isn’t such a bad idea. Just like the offensive tackles before, I am going to rank who I think is this year’s best players.
There will be some unpopular omissions but I can only go with what I see on film and statistics while incorporating measurables which made this almost an impossible task. Trying to weed out what is a deep corner draft will no doubt come with some snubs but nobody really knows how a prospect will develop.
The rankings are certainly not indicative of what I think of the other cornerbacks as they all have their advantages and disadvantages. This is just how I see it if I were pressed to make an educated guess.
It is rare for there to be so many long cover guys but that is exactly what this draft is full of. The Dallas Cowboys have a golden opportunity to restock their bare cornerback cupboard. The team tried to accomplish that goal in the 2017 draft but this draft is more suitable if they were to take the same approach.
