Data Points: Champ vs. Revis vs. Nnamdi

Who’s the best corner in the game? For years, Champ Bailey was the popular choice, and many fans still feel he is at or near the top. Over the last couple of seasons, Darrelle Revis has most often gotten the nod as the best pass defender in the NFL. Both players are discussed as potentially the best of this millennium in the Player 2K series.

So where does free agent Nnamdi Asomugha fit into this discussion?

Perhaps he should be at the top. Since 2008, when Revis first started getting recognized for his great play, Asomugha has been nearly unbeatable. Asomugha has been thrown at fewer than half as many times per game as both Bailey and Revis, while he’s giving up a measly 1.2 receptions per game over the last three seasons.

In case you’re wondering, Asomugha only allowed 13 balls to be caught on him in 2010.
