Ranking Chicago Bears in NFC North Cornerback Rooms
3. Minnesota Vikings: Patrick Peterson, Andrew Booth, Cam Dantzler, Akayleb Evans, Chandon Sullivan
Patrick Peterson gets the respect and the name-value as the top cornerback, but last season he was up and down. Peterson was once elite so even with him starting to fall of you can see glimpses of brilliance, but the Vikings are thin and they needed him in the worst way.
Booth was a second-round pick but was drafted after Kyler Gordon. A big reason is his injury status, and between his injuries, and the age of Peterson, the Vikings duo has some questions.
Cam Dantzler is a solid slot who can press from the inside and has quick feet. Still, while he is good in short areas, he lacks long speed and can get exposed when anyone gets a step on him. Sullivan is depth at best and may not make the roster, but Evans is a draft pick.
The upside of Evans is there, and he played in the SEC, but as a fourth-round rookie, the expectations are not sky-high here. The Vikings have some youth with their rookies, and their starters are fine on paper.
It is not a bad unit, but also not one that will be pushing up with some of the best in the NFL.
