2021 NFL Draft: Cornerback Rankings

Cornerback figures to be a popular choice once again in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft. With the league tilting towards more pass-centric offenses, finding long, athletic cornerbacks who can excel in coverage and also help out against the run is becoming more of a necessity rather than a luxury.

As part of Athlon Sports' 2021 NFL Draft Guide, we have ranked each position, including 30 cornerbacks. Seven corners were given a first-round grade this year, so expect several to be among the first 32 picks when this year's draft gets started on April 29.
