Jalen Ramsey's first three years in the NFL have been interesting. Pick a word, any word, he has hit the bullseye. From elite and amazing too immature and fascinating he has run the gambit. He is loved in Jacksonville but what about the rest of the country? Codu Benjamin and CBS Sports has put together their composite list of corners in the NFL. Check out where Jalen stacks up with the rest of the league below.

If there's one youngster on this list who seems bound to ascend even higher, my money is on White. His numbers aren't gaudy (six INTs in two years), but he's been feisty and efficient since coming in as a rookie in 2017. Both his years in the NFL, QBs throwing his way have registered passer ratings no better than 75. He also allowed only 30 catches in 2018.
Is name recognition keeping him afloat, or is he still performing at a Pro Bowl level? PFF had him ranked as the No. 5 CB in 2018, touting his performance as something akin to a career year, so that should at least partially answer the question. Peterson has rarely been as much of a ball-hawk as his athleticism suggests, and he'll miss six games under suspension to start 2019, but at age 28, he still justifies top dollar.
Starting with Harris, there was a tight race for the top spot, with a relatively sizable drop-off to Peterson. The longtime Bronco did most of his damage from the slot in 2018, but that doesn't negate his value. The guy is still one of the best all-around DBs in the game, from his coverage versatility to tackling efficiency.

Like Lattimore, almost everything about Ramsey's 2018 campaign was significantly worse than his prior season. Still, it's hard not to gush over the former fifth overall pick when he's on his game. Few players -- at any position -- possess his level of swagger. Oh, and he's pretty good at covering people, too, even after allowing more yards and catches as a third-year pro.
He doesn't have the mouth of Ramsey or the pizzazz of Peterson, but Gilmore has quietly been an anchor on the Patriots' championship defense since breaking out with the Bills. In his two years with New England, the eighth-year vet made up for just four combined picks with elite coverage grades, allowing a league-low completion percentage in 2018.
