The offseason brings more lists and rankings, and the latest is from Touchdown Wire’s Doug Farrar. After ranking the top 11 safeties in the NFL, he also did the 11 best cornerbacks in the league.

To nobody’s surprise, none of the Arizona Cardinals’ cornerbacks make the list.

The Cardinals top three cornerbacks are presumably Antonio Hamilton, Marco Wilson and Rashad Fenton right now. They have second-year pro Christian Matthew and they added two corners in the draft — Garrett Williams in the third round, but he is coming off a torn ACL, and Kei’Trel Clark in the fifth round.

Wilson flashed as a rookie and played a lot last year, making a few plays.

Fenton has starting experience and Hamilton had the best camp of his career last year before severely burning his feet.

But no one could reasonably say that the Cardinals’ corners are among the league’s best or even approaching them.

With the coaching of head coach Jonathan Gannon, who helped Darius Slay and James Bradberry both become two of the best in football, perhaps they are just a year or two away from someone cracking this list next year.
