The 2021 NFL Draft Cornerback class is a strong one. You have potential stars at the top, value in rounds 2 and 3, and high level depth/scheme dependent starters until round 5. It's a particularly good class for NFL defenses that love height, speed and length - which seems to be becoming the norm.
Ranking these CBs can be extremely difficult because what I look for in a CB will vary so much from other evaluators and especially different NFL coaches. CB is an extremely scheme and situation specific position, so my rankings are highly based on what I value in CBs: fluid movement skills, good arm length and efficient technique.
As always, you can find each prospects full scouting report by clicking the link embedded in their name - gaining information on measureables, athletic testing, stats, strengths, weaknesses and scheme fit/role.
