    Why is Jarrett Bush on the list?

    I would place Woodson at #1 because he has long list of achievements.

    Won a Heimen trophy,Won a Nat Chamionchip at Michigan, Made a carrer comeback after coming to Green bay. Winning a DPOY award, Alot of Pro bowl apperences and to cap it off a SB Ring.

    Thats quite a resume. I think He will get in Hall of Fame first ballot maybe.

    Let's see, 32 teams to get 100 players. Had to go 4 deep on a few teams. Jarrett Bush was a top nickel back? Really?:speechless::confused:

    I'm just surprised that Bush topped some of the guys he topped. It renews my opinion that bleacher report has little clue what it is talking about when it comes to certain topics.

    Looking at Shields' rookie year, I would swap him with Bush in the rankings. Bush is better left as a special teams guy.
    I agree with Woodson at #2, though I don't completely buy into all the "Revis Island" hype..

    Woodson at #2?!? Insane. He got burned all last year.

    100 corners? Wow I bet a lot of Wikipedia was used

    Yeah, he was, but I feel like his turnovers, coupled with the fact that a lot of his issues were related to the lack of a pass rush, put him up there. And from the 2010 season, we see what he does with a good supporting cast.

    From the same website that suggested that Randy Moss would be the perfect fit at GB coming back...

    how did winning a "heisman" and a national championship help woodson play better as a CB last year?

    He can not cover a teams #1 anymore. He is getting too old and just physically doesn't have it anymore to guard the elite WRs of the league. Now he can out think a QB, but getting matched up one on one in a deep passing route and he's toast. Both sides of this were evident in the panthers game.
