2010 draft rankings

PFW rates the cornerbacks

Posted April 20, 2010 @ 6 a.m. ET
By Nolan Nawrocki

Many variables affect the performance of prospects in the pros outside of talent, such as coaching, scheme fits/complexity, personality matches, injuries and work location, not to mention many other adjustments rookies must make to the NFL. Thus, the future success of an NFL prospect is difficult to predict without knowing which team a prospect will be playing for.

Nonetheless, PFW personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki ranks the following cornerbacks for the 2010 NFL draft according to their likelihood for success, heavily based on how they grade out on tape and factoring in the character, intelligence and medical grades of each player. The order of our rankings does not necessarily reflect the order in which we believe they will be drafted.
