[2017-18 NFL Position Power Rankings] The Cornerbacks (NFC)

Another day, another set of NFL POWER RANKINGS courtesy of THE USB’s resident NFL Power Ranking expert, Dustin James!

I hope you all had a good Fourth of July, but it’s time to get back down to business. Today, we are ranking one of the most controversial positions in the NFL. THE CORNERS IN THE NFC!

Is Richard Sherman the best CB?

Is Patrick Peterson the best CB?

What about Josh Norman?

NO! NONE OF THEM ARE! Just try to guess who #1 is! Go ahead!

Or you can just scroll down and see who it is for yourself. I’d highly recommend that……

LEZ DO DIS!
