2013 NFL Draft cornerback rankings

Kevin C. Cox

Cornerback is another position where the strength of the class will be determined by the non-seniors that come out.

Alabama junior Dee Milliner was one of the break out players of the 2012 college football season. Among the nation's leaders in pass breakups, Milliner is a do-it-all corner who can play man and coverage aptly. He's the the best in a growing list of Alabama cornerbacks in recent years.

If there's one school that knows something about sending cornerbacks to the NFL, it's Ohio State. The Buckeyes have another good corner in redshirt sophomore Bradley Roby. He's knocked down a little because he's not overly physical with big receivers, but his instincts and playmaking ability is impressive.

If Roby goes pro, there could be upwards of five cornerbacks taken in the first round. That last happened in 2010.
