Updated 2012 NFL Draft cornerback rankings

New, comments

The rise of LSU's Morris Claiborne is complete. All season he's inched his way up the rankings and now it's nearly impossible to not consider him the nation's best cornerback prospect. It's also helped him that Alabama's Dre Kirkpatrick has been inconsistent, Janoris Jenkins is playing at a lower level and Nebraska's Alfonzo Dennard has been injured.

Find the rankings and let me know what you think. Who should be lower and who should be higher? Also, how would you compare Claiborne to the top cornerbacks from previous seasons?
