3. Morris Claiborne CB
Someone I did not expect to put on a list like this before last season. However, Claiborne was quietly one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL last year until an injury stunted his comeback.
Even despite playing only 432 snaps according to PFF, he finished with their 12th best CB edging out Richard Sherman and Patrick Peterson.

He is a budding boundary cornerback who has shown that he can do a very good job with some complimentary pieces and a good defensive coordinator. More importantly, he is only 27 meaning you could give him a 1-year deal and extend it to a 3-year deal halfway through the season if he looks like a steal.
Think about this defense: Logan Ryan and Morris Claiborne as CB1 and CB2, with Ryan moving into a SCB role if the Titans went into nickel/dime packages and Jason McCourty and LeShaun Sims are our CB3/4.
That is a pretty young and talented 4-deep unit at CB.
