(each NFCW team is Cornerback except Seattle is QB)
The Cardinals know who their top three corners will be, but none of them actually looks like a top corner. In three qualified NFL seasons, Byron Murphy Jr. has never made the top 50 players at the position in coverage success rate. He may be best suited to a slot corner role, and his contract is up after the season -- even if he plays well in 2022, he might be leaving town in 2023.
Marco Wilson, a fourth-round draft pick out of Florida last year, was dreadful as a rookie, ranking 79th out of 81 qualifiers in coverage success rate. The new face is Jeff Gladney, the Vikings' first-round pick in 2020, who has generated bad headlines both on the field (70th in coverage success rate as a rookie) and off (was released last preseason after a domestic violence indictment; he was found not guilty in March).
