Crawley the number one rated CB?

New Orleans Saints CB Ken Crawley is PFF’s highest-graded cornerback through Week 4, even though he missed the first two games of the Saints. A big reason for Crawley’s success is his aggressiveness and the number of plays he makes on the ball. While he gave up eight receptions, the former Colorado player got his hands on three passes already, including an interception in the end zone against the Miami Dolphins.



Making plays on the ball was always part of Crawley’s game, as he broke up six passes last season; however, he has been able to elevate his game in 2017 by avoiding giving up big plays. He is yet to give up a reception for more than 20 yards so far, due largely to the fact that he has not missed a single tackle this season compared to his seven missed tackles in 2016.




See on PFF

He's gonna want lots of $ now

I guess Breaux is a bench warmer now.

Former Saint Patrick Robinson is number 4? Where did we go wrong?

Perhaps it wasn't bad drafting. Perhaps it was bad positional coaching.

We didn’t use Pat right. Another man corner.

Pretty small sample size, but very encouraging nonetheless. Looks like it's the Lattimore/Crawley show from here on out.

Patrick Robinson..... UGH!
Some of our best DB's seem to make their way to the Eagles.
They must love using us as their Juco for talent!!!!

He's a play maker. That interception was skill and critical in the first half. We could be in the high teens on D by the end of the RS if this keeps up.

Re: Crawley the number one rated CB?

Wtf is PRob doing on there?! Lmao! Well we couldn't have been totally wrong. He went to the Chargers and Colts after us and did nothing. I think Philly has a DB whisperer. They need to promote that man.

It should be worth noting that he wasn't the worst CB we've had. He just wasn't that good. And he certainly wasn't first round good.
