Cowboys Rank Highly On Best Cornerbacks List

Ryan Van Bibber of SB Nation Pro Football has his list up of ranking every cornerback squad, from one to 32, and it's rather positive about the Cowboys.

Dallas comes in at No. 4, with this blurb:

Visions of Eli Manning throwing practice reps against the secondary no doubt influenced Dallas' offseason plans. Not only did the Cowboys sign a legitimate No. 1 corner in free agency in Carr, they drafted one as well, trading up to the sixth pick for Morris Claiborne. Orlando Scandrick looks like a lock in the slot role. Disgruntled Mike Jenkins could be dealt during training camp. If they can find a path to appeasement, keeping Jenkins gives them even more depth.

Probably not any surprise, with there being a lot of excitement over Dallas's off-season as far as the secondary. Avoiding too-frequent blow ups in the secondary has seemed like the Cowboys' white whale in recent years, so it would be nice if this was the move to finally get there. If not, maybe we start very seriously considering voodoo curses or something.

The Eagles, unfortunately, rank just ahead, at third. The Giants come in at 11th, and the Redskins a delicious 26th.
