Herm Edwards places Darqueze Dennard at the top of his draft-eligible cornerbacks list

Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

The top of the cornerback position group is still as clear as mud, as ESPN's Herm Edwards weighs in with his top players at the position for the 2014 NFL Draft.

ESPN analyst and former NFL coach Herm Edwards weighed in recently on the cornerbacks debate emerging out of the 2014 NFL Draft, tabbing Michigan State's Darqueze Dennard as the top player at the position.

Opinions on this position seem to vary enough from source to source it's a wonder if it isn't simply no one cornerbacks is significantly better than the others. The Steelers are likely looking to add cornerbacks in this draft, and could be interested in Dennard with the 15th overall pick.

Or perhaps they like No. 2 on the list, Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert. Or maybe it's Ohio State's Bradley Roby, who took the third spot on Edwards' list. Jason Verrett came in fourth according to Edwards, and he's recently been in Pittsburgh visiting with the team. Florida State's Lamarcus Joyner comes in fifth, and of that group, is easily the least likely to be taken in the first round.

He puts small school prospect Pierre Desir and the massive Stanley Jean-Baptiste in his Honorable Mention category.

No one wins these contests until Draft Night, which is still three weeks away (from today). The last few workouts will be done in the coming days, and most players will shut down their PR tours until the draft itself. There isn't much left to figure out about any player that hasn't already been exposed, so we just sit and wait.

And argue Dennard vs. Gilbert vs. Roby some more.
