1. Yards after the catch per reception

Below you can see the cornerbacks who are shutting things down once the pass is caught. These corners are right there to shut things down so that when they do give up passes, they control them. As you can see, there are some usual suspects.

1. Kyle Fuller
2. Bryce Callahan
3. Denzel Ward
4. Michael Davis
5. Tre’Davious White
6. Jamel Dean
7. Joe Haden
8. Malcolm Butler
9. Carlton Davis
10. James Bradberry

Kyle Fuller leads the NFL in yards allowed after the catch per reception with 1.81. Callahan is allowing 1.87. What is interesting is that you do not see Ramsey, who is allowing 5.2. That can speak to the play style of Ramsey, who is not targeted because he does not give up catches, and makes plenty of plays on the ball. However, his aggresive nature can lead to yards after the catch on that rare occasion.

Still, Ramsey not cracking the top ten leaves just Callahan and Fuller as the only cornerbacks to have a top ten ranking in all six categories at this point in the NFL season. Seeing Callahan on the list may be stunning for Chicago Bears fans, but Fuller has been arguably the top cornerback in the NFL.

Overall Rankings

In fact, below is a sum of each cornerbacks ranking in each category. Based on the six categories below combined, these are the top ten cornerbacks in the NFL.

1. Kyle Fuller
2. Bryce Callahan
3. Jalen Ramsey
4. Darious Williams
5. James Bradberry
6. Denzel Ward
7. Jamel Dean
8. Carlton Davis
9. Steven Nelson
10. Marcus Peters

For the most part, fans would not disagree. Fuller, Ramsey, Bradberry, Ward, and Peters are all big-name cornerbacks. Williams, Nelson, Dean, and Davis are breaking out on playoff-contending teams while Callahan appears to finally be healthy and playing well.

Still, if you had to vote for the All-Pro, Fuller and Ramsey are locks. Callahan may not get the love, but should be the third candidate. If Callahan or Williams do not get the benefit of name-brand, Bradberry is deserving of All-Pro for being shut down in New York after a big deal.

Nonetheless, a first and second team, as well as a Pro Bowl ballot should include

Kyle Fuller, Jalen Ramsey, Bryce Callahan, Darious Williams, James Bradberry, Denzel Ward.
