Typically speaking, sports fans tend to worry about two things – the past and the future. They’ll debate who was the greatest player of all-time, while also spending hours discussing whether or not a rookie is going to be develop into an All-Pro.

Both are fun exercises, things that keep fans engaged and the beer flowing at the local tavern. But they miss out on what is most important – the present.

Forget about yesterday. Never mind tomorrow. Let’s talk about today.

Who are the best players in the NFL right now? Who can help a team win the Super Bowl this season? Who is writing a legacy with each passing week?

Those are the questions the editors at cover32 seek to answer in this series, “Top 10 in 2014.” In the coming weeks, every position – as well as head coach, general manager and other off-field areas – will be graded, evaluated and ranked.

The series continues with a position that has become so important that it’s now home of the league’s most high-profile divas – cornerback. Having a player who can neutralize the opposition’s top offensive weapon is vital to a defense, which is why a shutdown corner garners such a hefty salary. And being one of the few players in the league who fall into this category puts guys in rarified air, a status that turns them into the game’s biggest prima donnas.
