Though there is really only one corner worthy of a top 15 selection (Dee Milliner), the corner position, like much of this draft has a nice balance of early talent and projectable players late. The one knock in this group is that many of the guys will probably max out as number 2 corners or slot guys. There is a good balance in terms of having a number of guys with various strengths. There are some big physical corners that fit better in press man systems, quick slot guys, and other quicker guys with good technique who fit better as off man or zone coverage corners.
