NFL Draft: Cornerback Rankings, Part One
NFL Draft Story Central

16) B.W. Webb (5-11/184)
William & Mary
This small school cornerback had 11 career interceptions, including eight as a freshman. He has decent size for the position but very good speed and toughness. Webb closes on the ball quickly and has a knack to be around the ball.

17) Marc Anthony (5-11/196)
California
Anthony has good size and plays bigger with long arms. He's tough and aggressive and sometime overly aggressive, which gets him in trouble in coverage and run support. But Anthony makes plays and has good cover skills.

18) Tharold Simon (6-2/202)
LSU
Simon only started one season at LSU – 2012. He had 45 tackles, four interceptions and 14 pass breakups. He has very good size for the position at 6-foot-2 and he ran sub 4.5 [forty] at LSU's pro day. He is physical and a big hitter but is inconsistent in some phases of playing the position. Simon needs to working on his one on one skills.

19) Steve Williams (5-8.5/181)
California
Williams started the last two years at Cal. This past season he had 80 tackles, three interceptions and 13 pass breakups. He's a smaller cornerback who makes up for lack of size with good aggression. He plays with good instincts and smarts and puts himself in position to make plays on the ball.

20) Nickell Robey (5-7/175)
USC
Robey is a really good athlete, just undersized. But he makes up for his lack of height with a 40.5-inch vertical jump. He's fast and can be explosive. Robey has a knack for the big play and is always around the ball. He has good cover skills and looks like he could be an ideal slot cornerback in the NFL. He started all three years for the Trojans

21) Terry Hawthorne (5-11.5/195)
Illinois
Hawthorne is a two-year starter and a very good athlete. In fact, he played spot wide receiver in 2012. Hawthorne is quick and decisive, can make up ground quickly and has good foot speed. Last season he had 60 tackles and three interceptions.

22) Johnny Adams (5-11/185)
Michigan State
Adams was a three-year starter for the Spartans. He had six interceptions over the past two seasons and 101 tackles. He's a physical and aggressive cornerback, whether he's in run support or playing a receiver.

23) Will Davis (5-11/186)
Utah State
Davis had a big 2012 campaign with five interceptions and 24 pass breakups. He has shown he can play in man coverage. Davis can change directions and a quick burst. He has enough speed to run with receivers.

24) Micah Hyde (5-11.5/197)
Iowa
Hyde is another defensive back that saw action in every single game of his career at Iowa, starting his last 38. He was very productive, finishing with 240 tackles and 18 interceptions. He does not have great speed but plays fast enough. Hyde plays with good ball skills and is an aggressive defender.

25)Sanders Commings (6-0/216)
Georgia
Commings only missed two starts (suspension) over the past two seasons. He looks like a safety (body) playing corner. Commings is tough in bump and run. He can press and run with receivers. Commings needs to focus on becoming more of a well-rounded corner in different coverages.

26) Mike Edwards (5-9/189)
Hawaii
Edwards is a speedy corner who backs down to no one, despite being a smaller player at this position. He's physical and aggressive. Edwards is also a quality return man who returned three kickoff for scores last season.

27) Brandon McGee (5-11/193)
Miami (Fl)
McGee started his final two seasons as a Hurricanes but never lived up to expectations. He finished his career with 92 tackles and three interceptions. He has average size but good speed and quickness. He looks like an ideal guy as a nickel corner or even a slot corner in the NFL. McGee had a real good showing at the East-West Shrine Game in January.

28) Adrian Bushell (5-9/186)
Louisville
Bushell originally signed with Florida before transferring to Louisville. Essentially he started for the Cardinals the past two seasons. Bushell does all the things you need in a corner, just lacks ideal size. Sometimes he's a little aggressive in the secondary and it gets him in trouble.

29) Josh Johnson (5-9/199)
Purdue
Johnson is a cornerback that put up productive numbers in three years as a starter at Purdue. Had 172 tackles and six interceptions in that time. This is a physical and aggressive corner at the line of scrimmage. He didn't run well at the Combine and did better at his pro day.

30) Rod Sweeting (5-11/189)
Georgia Tech
Sweeting played for virtually four-straight seasons at Georgia Tech and was a started his last two years. He tied a Yellow Jacket record by playing in 54 games during his career. Sweeting the MVP of the Sun Bowl. He's a smooth defensive back and shows he can be effective in zone and man.
