CFN: Roby the 4th Best Corner in College Football

College Football News ranked Bradley Roby the 4th best cornerback in college football. CFN wrote 

Roby’s a 5-11, 192-pound junior who finished third on the team with 63 tackles with two picks and a whopping 17 broken up passes. He came from out of nowhere to be the team’s best corner two years ago and now he’s a lockdown all-star with great range, quickness and hitting ability. He might not necessarily be an elite next-level talent, he'll play in The League, but he’s purely a good football player.

Hopefully his year isn't affected by his legal troubles. He was an absolute monster last year.

So I take it the fact that Purifoy had forced 3 fumbles, he is ranked preseason the best corner in America?? Dude had less tackles, less passes broken up, and didn't have a single interception... Thank God it's only preseason talk, hopefully Roby has a year like last year at the least again!

Not to defend the list, but a lot of time corner stats are deceiving.  A corner who lets a WR catch everything in front of him will have more tackles.  A true lockdown corner will not get balls thrown his way so he won't have many passes defended or interceptions.

Show us three better corners.

Can't do it.

Long live the southend.

These ratings mean nothing. He will have whatever is left of his season to prove himself.  The NFL draft will determine the 2 all-American CB's, not talking heads.

  Naw, There is none. Roby will show he can do it again this year. Go Bucks

While we may argue, as we should, about these rankings, I am glad that we have several top players mentioned regularly, further raising the profile of the program.

I'm sure they can try to hype up 3 better corners in football, but there are none better than Roby!

Just me or is that last sentence difficult to understand?

Only the 1st sentence makes sense.  The rest was written from what he remembered his mom said in her sleep.
