NFL Gambling – Best CB in the 2010 NFL Draft

Cornerback has become the new glamour position in the NFL gambling. CB Charles Woodson won the NFL Defensive Player of the year award and fellow CB Derrelle Revis is widely considered the best defensive player in the NFL gambling action.

With teams throwing 40-50 times a game and gigantic WRs becoming more and more of a homerun threat thanks to PI calls this CB spot can no longer be ignored. It wasn’t so long ago that CB was almost an afterthought in the NFL draft. You could always drop a safety back to help or drop into a zone coverage to cover up for any deficiencies at the CB spot in the NFL gambling action.

Not anymore. The passing games have become more and more intricate and the CB is arguably the second most important position in the NFL draft, after QB Florida’s Joe Hayden is the only CB that seems to grade out universally as a Round 1 pick, likely a top ten pick. His 40-time at the NFL Draft combine was poor (4.57) but it had more to with his starting stance than lack of speed and he’ll run much faster at this pro day.

While other CBs may not grade out at Round 1 on everybody’s board there will be at least three taken in the first round of the NFL draft. Kyle Wilson of Boise State is a lock for the first round as well, not only for his coverage skill but as a return man.

Alabama’s Kareem Jackson will likely get a team to bite in the first round; excellent 40 time at the combine (4.41) and proved himself in the very tough SEC. Two ACC CBs that could also get taken on Thursday are Wake Forest’s Brandon Ghee and Virginia’s Chris Cook. Cook is a physical specimen and will draw a lot of interest but the better player is probably Ghee.
