Let's face it America—cornerbacks get no love.  Consider this, of the 16 retired football jerseys at the University of Nebraska, none are cornerbacks.  Being a spreader of love, I thought I'd slide them some. 

With Deion Sanders being inducted in the Hall of Fame in the fall, this list is even more appropriate.  Maybe more cornerbacks willw make the Hall. 

Prince Amukamara, Dejon Gomes and Eric Hagg are set to represent the Huskers in the NFL combine coming up from February 23-March 1 in Indianapolis' corner of the world.

Cornerbacks are often put in position to make plays on their own islands—man-to-man pass coverage all over the field.  Stay with me as I reveal the best shut down cornerbacks to inhabit Cornhuskers Corner, aka Big Red Island.
