I'd take the best CB in the game over the best OLB or DE in the game right now.
Give me Nnamdi.
Then you'd be making a mistake.
Here's how it works - Elite corner completely shuts down his receiver...but the other team has 2-4 others left to exploit your defense.
An elite pass rusher gets to the QB and the QB can't get the ball to ANY of his receivers.
Of course these are extremes but a consistent pass rush can make average corners look great. A great corner with an average pass rush leaves you open in other areas.
Would be super to have both but I'll take a dominant pass rusher any day.
