2. Trevon Diggs, Dallas Cowboys

In every cornerback ranking, Slay and Diggs are right there by each other. The gap between the two superstars isn't that big, and the Cowboys cornerback can certainly be at the top of this list.

Diggs is an All-Pro corner and one of the best in the game, despite what others might argue. In just three NFL seasons, he has two Pro Bowl selections and one first-team All-Pro selection. He also led the league in 2021 with 11 interceptions.

Yes, Diggs does give up big plays sometimes , and his inconsistencies are why he enters the season as the second-best corner in the division. But there's no denying that the former 2020 second-round pick loves to make plays.

Since 2020, Diggs is tied with Los Angeles Chargers cornerback J.C. Jackson for the most interceptions (17) over the past three years. The Cowboys' cornerback had three interceptions in 2020 and 2022 and 11 in 2021.

Entering his fourth season, the 24-year-old should continue to grow in a position that he didn't start playing until his sophomore season at Alabama. You saw last year how much more disciplined Diggs was on the outside, and that should continue to improve.
