2014 NFL Draft Cornerback Rankings

New, comments

Josh Collacchi takes a look at the top cornerbacks that may be available in April's draft.

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles have three corners on their roster that will likely be back next season: Brandon Boykin, Bradley Fletcher, and Cary Williams. Whereas the secondary is not the strong part of the defense, there have been stretches where the corners have played well.

Brandon Boykin is one of the better slot cornerbacks in the NFL, and will be a very good player for years to come. Bradley Fletcher is a serviceable number two corner, but by no means is a lock to start for the future. Cary Williams has been good at times, and has been atrocious at times, but his contract will likely continue his time with the Eagles.

The Eagles will need to address the cornerback position in next year's draft, and so far, this is shaping to be a top heavy class.

Here are my preliminary cornerback rankings for the 2014 NFL Draft. A lot more tape has to be watched, and players will declare or announce their return to school, so by no means is this a final list.
