Both of the Green Bay Packers starting cornerbacks, [intlink id=”143″ type=”category”]Charles Woodson[/intlink] and [intlink id=”82″ type=”category”]Tramon Williams[/intlink], made ESPN’s cornerback power rankings list.
Woodson finished third and Williams finished seventh.
Not surprisingly, the top two in the rankings were the [intlink id=”69″ type=”category”]New York Jets[/intlink]’ Darrelle Revis and the [intlink id=”29″ type=”category”]Oakland Raiders[/intlink]’ Nnamdi Asomugha, who received all the first and second place votes.
The [intlink id=”374″ type=”category”]Philadelphia Eagles[/intlink]’ Asante Samuel and [intlink id=”27″ type=”category”]Denver Broncos[/intlink]’ Champ Bailey were close behind Woodson. The trio was separated by only five points.
The [intlink id=”35″ type=”category”]Minnesota Vikings[/intlink]’ Antoine Winfield was the other cornerback to finish ahead of Williams.
If you want to make any argument about the rankings, it’s probably that Williams should be higher, at least higher than Winfield and probably Bailey at this stage of his career. Bailey has had a Hall of Fame career, power rankings shouldn’t be lifetime achievement awards, though. As for Winfield, did anyone see how bad the Vikings secondary was last season?
