The Arizona Cardinals need a cornerback, would one of Mayock’s top five fit?

For the Arizona Cardinals it will be interesting what they do at the cornerback position in the 2017 NFL Draft.

They paid big money in terms of secondary corners with their Justin Bethel contract and invested a third round pick in Brandon Williams.

However, they still have a giant question mark sitting across from All-Pro Patrick Peterson.

One, that may be able to be addressed in the 2017 NFL Draft.

With the release of his top five players at each position, Mike Mayock made some interesting changes to his cornerback rankings:

Cornerback

1. Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State

2. Marlon Humphrey, Alabama

3. Kevin King, Washington

4. Gareon Conley, Ohio State

5. Fabian Moreau, UCLA

Rise: Lattimore (2), Humphrey (3), King (NR), Conley (NR), Moreau (NR)

Fall: Sidney Jones, Washington (1, added to special exceptions), Teez Tabor, Florida (4), Tre'Davious White, LSU (5)

Lattimore is hands down the man, but he likely won’t be available for the Arizona Cardinals. Humphrey and King are interesting athletic prospects, but can they play in man coverage?

Conley is extremely talented and Moreau can fly.

This is a great year to need a corner, which one would you want if Lattimore is not available?
