should Antoine Cason be a little higher? I know some people had him in the first round of mock drafts last year before he decided to stay at Arizona...

He he played solid this year. I just think jenkins, Talib and Smith have played better.

Very similar to my rankings...

1. Malcolm Jenkins (Best CB since Pacman)
2. Reggie Smith (Has been plain spectacular for Oklahoma, but I think has more value at safety)
3. Aqib Talib (quick and covers well. Definite ballhawk.
4. Antoine Cason (Will be great in a cover-2. Compares well to Daymeion Hughes)
5. Terrell Thomas (was really high on him last year, but has seem to lose a step this year. Continually moving up my board)
6. Zack Bowman (only reason he is not higher is because he hasn't played a full season in D-1. Could be great value in this draft due to him likely falling)
7. Mike Jenkins (played like crap last week and a bit overrated, but a good 2nd round CB)

From what I've seen of him Jack Ikegwuonu is a top 3 CB. Might be the best.

I like the Jenkins' the best. Those two have impressed me this year.

The surpressed homer in me compells me to mention Morgan Trent in this thread. He isn't top 5 (not close really), but he is likely top ten, IMO. Especially after the game last weekend.

Mike Jenkins' will probably get drafted 10 or so spots higher than he should (16ish?) because he'll put up a nice 40 and he can return kicks.

1. Malcolm Jenkins
2. Mike Jenkins
3. Aqib Talib
4. Antoine Cason
5. Tracy Porter

So, the question is.. HOW good is Malcolm Jenkins? I say this as a Dolphins fan.. I'm sure he's not worth a top 3 pick, but is it feasible?

I always feel uncomfortable ranking corners, because even when I do get a chance to catch them on television, their position is immensely hard to evaluate. Therefore, my corner rankings tend to be a mixture of what I've seen the players do and what people I trust think of them.

1. Malcolm Jenkins, Ohio State - Has arguably been the best defensive back in the nation this year. Represents possible value at free safety too.
2. Aqib Talib, Kansas - I've caught every Kansas game I could the last two seasons after someone told me to watch this kid. I feel he may be the best cover corner in the draft.
3. Kenny Phillips, Miami - I do feel that some teams are going to take a long look at drafting Phillips to be a cornerback once this season is over, and while he'd be a bit more of a project I think he would represent great value there.
4. Mike Jenkins, South Florida - Has been playing great football this year and presents an intriguing value in the return game.
5. Reggie Smith, Oklahoma - I've been impressed with Smith this year, but I do think he projects better as a safety.

Cason is more of a physical bump and run corner, like a (poor man's) Chris McAlister. He's also one of the better tackling corners around. He runs a 4.5 or so but he's pretty agile and flexible.

(1) Malcolm Jenkins - physical man to man corner, best corner to come out in a few years.

(2) Dwight Lowery - ball hawk, picks just about everything thrown to his side off, usually takes it for a TD. Would probably be a dominate safety.

(3) Aqib Talib - fast, good hands, playmaker, can play man to man.

(4) Antoine Cason - great instincts, playmaker, nfl ready.

(5) Reggie Smith - pure football player, strong, would make a killer safety.

1. Malcolm Jenkins, Ohio State - I am absolutely in love with this kid. It pains me to say it because he's a Buckeye, but it's true. Personally, I think he's the best CB prospect to come out since Terrence Newman.

2. Aqib Talib, Kansas - Another one of my personal favorites. He's such a playmaker in the secondary and covers very well. Speed is questionable, but he can more than make up for it.

3. Tracy Porter, Indiana - This kid is really under the radar, and I can't figure out why. Maybe because not many people catch Indiana games. He has always been good in coverage and he looks faster this year then last year. If he does run that rumored 4.40, he should easily make the 1st Round.

4. Mike Jenkins, South Florida - He's got a nice size and speed combination and is good in coverage. It'll be interesting to see how he reacts after a poor performance. Kick return skills are a plus.

5. Reggie Smith, Oklahoma - Smith is a bit of a CB/S tweener who I've always admired. I think he can be a good CB at the next level, but I think he can be a great FS.

PL what CB do you think the Lions should target if Malcom Jenkins isn't in reach?

Brandon Flowers should be on any top 10 list, and maybe on top 5 lists. Macho Harris will likely be a top 5, or at least top 10, as a senior.

Tier 1
1. Malcolm Jenkins - Got to agree with PL...best corner since Newman
2. Aqib Talib - Playmaker on both sides of the ball...needs to run sub 4.5 tho
3. Mike Jenkins - Gamer...really wasn't on the radar early this year...might be a tad overhyped...
4. Reggie Smith - Tweeners scare me lately...Rolle/Jason Allen both aren't doing hot

Tier 2
5. DeJuan Tribble - Undersized...but best cover corner in this class
6. Justin King - His measureables alone put him this high...some team will draft him higher than his skills show right now.
7. Jack Ikegwuonu - Right in the same boat as Smith imo..a bit of a tweener..the character concerns drop him a bit.
8. Tracy Porter - Like PL said under the radar...pretty lanky...could use more bulk at the next level
9. Antoine Cason - The best pure corner in this class...I have a feeling he runs in the late 4.5's and you just can't justify that outside of the cover 2.

Tier 3
10. Terrell Thomas - Boarderline top 5...but the injury concerns drop him.
11. Dominque Rodgers - Size and speed and lower level domination will let him go sooner than he should...raw techinique wise..tends to open his hips to quick.
12. Brandon Flowers - Lots of upside but could stand to thicken up in the chest and work on staying low in his backpedal.
13. Chevis Jackson - A solid guy...just don't think he has the straight line speed to be a top 10 guy.
14. Dwight Lowery - Another small school guy who is putting up crazy numbers...a project here.
15. Trae Williams - Occasionally is more solid than his other USF counter-part just doesn't have that type of upside...still solid player.
16 Zack Bowman - Hasn't done anything all year outside of turn in his black practice jersey...team leader and smart...but hasn't proved he can play after back to back knee surgeries...wild card if he can come back healthy.
