Nebraska's Alfonzo Dennard snags one of his four interceptions in 2010. Denard is considered the best cornerback in college football.

Nebraska senior Alfonzo Dennard is not only No. 1 in the Big Ten, but he's projected to be the first cornerback taken in the 2012 NFL draft.

Dennard was a second team All-Big 12 selection in 2010 with 30 tackles, seven pass breakups and four interceptions. He is the anchor on the second best secondary in the Big Ten.

The Ohio State Buckeyes have the best secondary in the conference. Their secondary features experience and depth with both cornerbacks and both safeties appearing in Bleacher Report Top 10 lists and defensive back C.J. Barnett prepared to play safety if/when Tyler Moeller slides to linebacker.

Nebraska, Ohio State and Iowa managed to place their starting cornerbacks on this list  It leaves five teams—Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Northwestern—without a player on the top 10 cornerback list.
