One of the most difficult positions for me to try and analyze is cornerback. In fact, before last year, I really never tried to evaluate defensive backs in general. There are a number of reasons for this. The first and most obvious is that it’s incredibly hard to see defensive backs play on broadcast television. College football broadcasts are a little better in this regard because they use fewer cameras and wider shots, but for the most part, you can only see a corner or safety in the shot for a second or two (if he even enters the picture at all). Post-snap, the camera zooms in on the ball (either the running back or quarterback), so the most you can see on most plays is how the corner plays the wide receiver off the line of scrimmage.
