With so many good cornerbacks in the NFL, there will always be a debate as to which cover man is the best the NFL has to offer. Well, that debate ends here. At least for the 2016 season.
While the Denver Broncos season ended without a chance to defend their title, cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr. both had excellent years, earning Pro Bowl Berths and first-team All-Pro honors for their outstanding play in the secondary.
It's a pretty impressive resume for the 2016 season, but their accolades don't end there.
As it turns out, the Broncos cornerback tandem were the two highest rated corners in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus.

Honestly, should we really be surprised? Like they really needed further validation at this point.
