The top four cornerbacks in the NFC East play on two rosters.

The rich get richer sometimes. It's an ugly fact of life. The starting cornerback tandems of both the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys occupy all four of the top slots on our NFC East cornerback ranking. Here's where everyone landed.

4. Trevon Diggs, Dallas Cowboys

Trevon Diggs' reputation is well known. He creates a ton of big plays, but he's also a gambler. His aggressive style of play can create highlight-reel moments or place him on the wrong side of one.

The talent is undeniable. Since entering the NFL in 2020, he has been named to two Pro Bowl rosters (2021, 2022). He earned First-Team All-Pro honors after leading the NFL in interceptions in 2021. It should be interesting to watch his battles with A.J. Brown this coming season. If the consistency and playmaking prowess level out, we could be watching the upswing of one of the game's best.

3. James Bradberry, Philadelphia Eagles

As mentioned earlier, arguments can be made that Darius Slay is more talented while James Bradberry was been more consistent in 2022. Perhaps one of the best bump-and-run, man-to-man corners in the game, James Bradberry has bounced back from an injury-plagued swan song with the Giants in 2021.

James racked up 44 tackles, three interceptions, and 17 pass breakups with the Birds last season. He accepted less money than he could have earned elsewhere so he could stay with Philly. All that's left is the need to answer one question. What does he do for an encore?
