NFL Draft Odds: Cornerback

Odds, trends and analysis


Another draft, another year with a stacked cornerback crop. Top names in the 2024 NFL Draft at the cornerback position include Alabama’s Terrion Arnold, Toledo’s Quinyon Mitchell, Iowa’s Cooper DeJean, and Clemson’s Nate Wiggins. As the receiver talent level continues to rise, cornerbacks are becoming more of a premium position. Perhaps not viewed at the same level as QBs, tackles, and edge rushers, corners are a very close second. Below, we’ll look at NFL Draft odds for the cornerback position.

Which of the group might go first? How many CBs will be drafted in the first round? Let’s explore.

NFL Draft odds strategy and trends

The last few drafts brought strong classes to the table. It’s another natural counter to the receiving talent also coming into this draft, which should make for entertaining battles in the coming years. Last year, four corners went in the first round, one of which came inside the top five (Devon Witherspoon). In 2022, four corners also went in the first round, with two coming inside the top five picks. In 2021, five corners were drafted in the first round while 2020 saw six. In a pass-heavy NFL, trends point toward more and more corners being drafted earlier on, potentially making it a premium position along with QB, pass rusher, and tackle.
