According to this guy's metrics Fuller, Dennard, Purifoy, Mitchell, Verrett have the best(lowest) Burn % in that order...Gilbert seems overrated... of those CB's, Dennard, Mitchell, Purifoy played more press coverage than the others. Fuller has a great Burn%, but played 6-10 yds over 50% of the time... Dennard looks like the best press corner, followed by Mitchell & Purifoy although Purifoy gets beaten deep more often.. You would expect it more difficult to have a good deep burn% if you play press all the time with no help.. I like Verrett more than Fuller because he doesn't play off/zone as much.
Analysis seems fairly thorough... I used to just use passes defensed as the main metric, but I like this thorough analysis better.. I'd like to also see yards per target as well and TD's allowed, but this is good.. what do you guys think?
