YOOOAdrian’s 2010 NFL Preview- CB Rankings

  • With the spread offense taking off in the NFL, defensive backs have become a premium for every NFL team.  So what makes a good corner, let’s find out.
  • Ball Skills- Playing and attacking the football as much as a receiver would, having good hands and the ability to knock the ball away if you can’t catch it.
  • Instincts- Reading the routes of the receiver, keeping the quarterback in the corner of their eye and getting a jump on the ball.
  • Closing Speed- Some corners bait the quarterback into interceptions, closing speed is the key to get to the ball.  Taking a straight line to the ball, changing gears and not letting too much seperation.
  • Technique- Doing the basics well such as the the backpedel, jamming, tackling, flipping the hips and balancing the weight.
