Cornerbacks in the EFL Draft
Will these be the ones to slow down the incredible EFL passing numbers?
Notre Dame Fighting Irish: CB Casey Archer: @Symmetrik 379 TPE
Representing the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, CB Casey Archer is the top defensive prospect in the draft. He is showing out in his final season with 7 interceptions and 11 PDs. Casey is a well rounded corner back. He does not posses potential speed (83), but he has decent agility (73), and hands (70). A strength of Archer is his impressive IQ (75 rating, perhaps a 115 IQ). Casey Archer is a very talented athlete represented by a well respected agent. He will likely be the first CB and perhaps the first player off the board.
Michigan Wolverines: CB Jax Byrd: @KGR: 331 TPE
Jax Byrd isn't going to let a receiver burn him. With a speed rating off 85, he's got the burners. Byrd has soft hands that allow him to easily grab pick after pick. His agility and intelligence are lacking when compared to Archer, but they compare well to the rest of the class. Byrd makes good use of his talents. His 6 interceptions and 10 PDs trail only Archer. Byrd's agent may have been involved in some controversy in the past, but that is behind him now. Jax Byrd is deserving of an early pick.
Miami Hurricanes: CB Lester McCorn: @Cornholio: 329 TPE
The Hurricanes star corner, Lester McCorn is one of the fastest players in the draft. Coming in with a blazing 87 speed, (I mention speed a whole lot. It's the most important attribute in the sim by far) McCorn will be well able to hold his own on the field. This young athlete has good hands, (these CBs aren't very original.) along with decent agility and intelligence. Three interceptions and 6 PDs aren't bad numbers at all. McCorn is represented by a strong agent, and I'd be surprised if he wasnt the 2nd corner off the board.
Texas Longhorns: CB Luke Cafferty: @Jmoney: 293 TPE
Describing CB builds has gotten very boring at this point. I cannot really think of anything to spice this up a bit. Cafferty plays a role in the undefeated Longhorns defense. He possesses speed, intelligence, agility, and hands just like every other corner on the list. The user behind Cafferty is known from other leagues and has shown to be a consistent updater. Cafferty might not be a superstar, (few corners are in this sim) but any team should be satisfied with what he brings.
LSU Tigers: CB Maverick Arceneaux III: @me: 283 TPE
Sitting last among active corners in TPE we have my player MA3. He is very fast, and intelligent with alright agility. Arceneaux can't catch... Perhaps that's why he rarely gets any relevant CB stats. Arceneaux has given the possibility of retirement before the draft, which obviously would hurt his stock. If Arceneaux commits to being drafted and playing a full career, I expect GMs to look at the hardworking Arceneaux of today, and to understand he was set back by the Arceneaux of yesterday.
