5. Chicago Bears
Charles Tillman, Tim Jennings, Kelvin Hayden, Sherrick McManis
The Bears have a great starting duo with Tillman and Jennings on the field, but the team lacks a presence at the No. 3 cornerback spot and in sub packages. The front-line talent is tough to beat if they can replicate their 2012 production.
4. St. Louis Rams
Cortland Finnegan, Janoris Jenkins, Trumaine Johnson, Brandon McGee
One of the surprises of the 2012 season was the success of the Rams defense, and with an already talented group of cornerbacks getting a year older and wiser, they could be even more dangerous. Finnegan and Jenkins are both physical, mugging cornerbacks and consistently show up on game day.
3. Denver Broncos
Champ Bailey, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Chris Harris, Omar Bolden, Tony Carter
With five players on the depth chart who have the talent to start, the Broncos have a staggering amount of ability in the defensive backfield. Bailey may be aging, but he was very good in 2012. Harris might be the best-kept secret in the NFL right now, as he has shutdown potential at cornerback.
2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Darrelle Revis, Eric Wright, Johnthan Banks, Leonard Johnson
Trading for Darrelle Revis and drafting Banks turned a weakness into a strength in Tampa. The team struggled with the secondary in 2012, but this coming season, it will be the glue that holds this team together. If healthy, Revis is a top-two cornerback, but so much hinges on how quickly he's back to his old self.
1. Seattle Seahawks
Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Antoine Winfield, Jeremy Lane
As with most positions, the Seahawks have a wealth of talent. Sherman is either the best or second-best cornerback in the NFL right now, and he backs up all his talking with exceptional play. Browner has the size to keep up with the biggest receivers in the league, and with Winfield now on the roster, they have a slot cover man who will straight up lay the wood on runners.
