Revis, McCourty and then Davis at corner
NFL.com senior analyst Pat Kirwan continues to roll out his positional evaluations.
Next up are cornerbacks.
Only three AFC East players made Kirwan's rundown of the league's 30 best cornerbacks. Kirwan breaks down each position into sets of five (along with a corresponding trend arrow), and you can guess who's in the "A" quintet.
New York Jets star Darrelle Revis is there and still trending upward. Also in the group are Nnamdi Asomugha, Champ Bailey, Asante Samuel and Charles Woodson.
New England Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty is in the "B" group, ranking him somewhere between sixth and 10th along with Cortland Finnegan, Dunta Robinson, Tramon Williams and Antoine Winfield. McCourty's arrow is pointing up, too.
Vontae Davis of the Miami Dolphins fell into the "D" group and is tending upward in Kirwan's book.
