NFL projection rankings: Cornerbacks

A look at the projected NFL success of cornerbacks based on their long-term value, not their draft status. Also included are the speed, agility and strength numbers for the NFL Scouting Combine invitees.

The following are projections for a draft prospect's future in the NFL three or four years from now, which is why their pro ranking doesn't always follow the order of their projected draft status.

Key:
# denotes underclassman
% denotes significant injury
PFA means priority free agent
FA means undrafted free agent
CMP means camp body
