Cornerback is one of the most interesting positions in football to bring advanced numbers to. While we are swamped with information and numbers collected by offensive players, its all too rare that we are told who those numbers came against.

PFF has been collecting that kind of data for years, allowing us to be first on names such as Richard Sherman, Brent Grimes, Chris Harris Jr, and now weve brought the same data to the FBS.

CFF has collected the same advanced data for every game in the FBS this season and were going to take a look at which corners posted some fantastic numbers as well as some of the top prospects in the draft who didnt.

Tackling Efficiency

The primary job of any corner is to cover stop his opponent catching passes but missed tackles anywhere on a football field can lead to big plays and if they come in the passing game, after the corner has allowed the catch to be made, it can lead to a reservation for six for the team on offense.

Here is the top of the list showing CBs sorted by Tackling Efficiency (attempts per miss) on pass plays:



Yards Per Coverage Snap



Completion Percentage Allowed



NFL Passer Rating Allowed

S. Golson from Ole Miss would look great in the 3rd.

Re: Cornerbacks

Andrew Gaines looks like he may be a steal too.
