2010 NFL Draft: The Pros and Cons of This Year’s Cornerback Class

In today's increasingly pass-heavy NFL, you can never have too many quality cornerbacks on your defense.

There are many teams that could be in search of a corner early in the first few rounds with the 49ers, Steelers, Packers, Eagles, and Vikings looking like possible teams who could consider going with a corner in the first round.

When trying to rate this year's class, you could probably say that it is above average but not overwhelmingly great. If you were to give it a grade, it would probably fall somewhere in the B to C+ range.

There are no guys this year that will make you forget about Deion Sanders, but there are still players capable of doing great things in the NFL.

Joe Haden of Florida is the premier player of the class, but there are a wealth of players after him who offer a lot to a team in need of a corner.
