    The cornerback position is one of several positions that has been completely turned over in the last few seasons. 2008 draftees Terrence Wheatley and Jonathan Wilhite are the longest-tenured cornerbacks on the team. The position itself has undergone something of a transformation as well, whereas the speedy, diminutive Ellis Hobbs-type of cornerback seemed to be favored at one point, now the trend seems to be for bigger, more physical style cornerbacks, who may not have great speed, but are fluid, and can move well.

    With the AFC East boasting receivers like Brandon Marshall, Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards, and Lee Evans, cornerback play is crucial in the six divisional games.

    Here is a look at the cornerbacks currently on the roster, listed in order of our unofficial depth chart.
