Cincinnati possesses one of the more underrated pair of corners in the NFL, let alone one of the best in Leon Hall and Johnathan Joseph. There’s only 1, possibly 2 pairs that I would take ahead of them; Revis and Cromartie from New York, and Newman or Jenkins from Dallas.
LCB- Leon Hall- 71 tck 6 int 24 p def 2 ff
Hall is a complete corner with no major flaws in his game. He’s smart and instinctive, has quick closing speed on the ball and is strong in run support. He may very well be the most underrated cornerback in football.
RCB- Johnathan Joseph- 69 tck 6 int 20 p def 1 ff
Joseph emerged last season opposite Hall. His game is similar to Hall’s as he too doesn’t have many major flaws. He plays with excellent athleticism, can play zone or man and improved his hands as his interception numbers suggest.
CB- Morgan Trent- 28 tck 4 p def 1 sck
Trent has good size and speed and improved as the season went along last year as a rookie.
CB- Brandon Ghee- ROOKIE
Ghee is a raw rookie taken in the 3rd round. He has good athleticism, but needs to improve his ball skills.
FS- Chris Crocker- 51 tck 2 int 9 p def 1 ff
Crocker is versatile. He can lineup as a nickel corner and can play the run.
SS- Roy Williams- 28 tck 2 p def
Williams is great against the run, but lacks range against the pass.
S- Chinedum Ndukwe- 89 tck 1 int 5 p def 2 sck
Between Williams and Ndukwe, Ndukwe is the better overall football player, but Williams fits the system.

I currently work for the Sports Network. It's the best job ever! I am a 2010 graduate of Temple University where I majored in broadcast journalism, I LOVE SPORTS! That's why I am here. I have a vast knowledge and want to share my athletic intelligence with the world. Some people like to spend their time shooting down aliens in Halo; I like to spend my time watching sports, current and old. It's my passion! I got asked one time how I can watch a game over again when I already know the outcome. 5 minutes later, he's watching Happy Gilmore reciting all of the lines from the movie. Hypocrite! As for my favorite sports teams, I've been a lifelong Philadelphia sports fan. My favorite athlete is Allen Iverson. He didn't like practice that much, but when it came to gametime, no one let it all out on the floor like Iverson. He is absolutely beloved in the city of Brotherly Love. For college athletics, obviously I pay close attention to Temple. (Yes, football too) Even before I stepped foot on Temple's campus for the 1st time in 2005, I was a fan. Oh the good old days of John Chaney! Some other tidbits about myself, I love cheesesteaks, I hydrate myself with Welch's Grape Juice and Snapple. I love the HBO show Entourage. Also, when is Kenny Powers making his much anticipated return in Eastbound and Down!
