[UPDATE] 2018 NFL Draft CB Rankings — Top 80

Every year, we see NFL Draft prospects get bigger, stronger and faster. This is especially true at the cornerback position, where there are franchise talents such as Minkah Fitzpatrick of Alabama and Denzel Ward of Ohio State. Speedsters such as Jaire Alexander of Louisville and Donte Jackson of LSU, who bring additional value in the return game, while corners such as Carlton Davis of Auburn and Joshua Jackson possess size, along with playmaking ability. Days two and three of the draft should prove to be plentiful as well, with players such as Parry Nickerson of Tulane, Tarvarus McFadden of Florida State and Levi Wallace of Alabama, all of whom could eventually evolve into starters down the road at the next level. We never stop covering the NFL Draft, so be sure to follow our updates @NFLDraftBible.
