Ranking College Football's Top-30 Cornerbacks 2019-2020

Florida Gator C.J. Henderson takes the top spot in the top-30 CB rankings. Ohio State's Jeff Okudah is not far behind and might have the most upside, but his lack of starting experience puts him at #2 on the list. This is a very strong position group this season, and there could be as many as 10 CBs with 1st round potential.
