Three cornerbacks to covet in the 2010 NFL draft:


5-11, 193, Florida

Considered the highest-rated cornerback among this year's class, he could be a top 10 pick and should be off the board by the time the Jets pick, if they stay at No. 29. Haden has solid ball-hawking skills, with a nice combination of athleticism, strength and speed that could help him to become one of the league's elite corners.


5-10, 190, Boise State

The former Piscataway (N.J.) High School standout is intriguing because of his versatility. Besides being an aggressive cover corner who loves to play the ball and can anticipate well, he also returns kicks. He's extremely durable, having not missed any games in college. But he has some trouble with bigger receivers and also needs to work on his ability to play the run.


5-11, 193, Rutgers

The 2009 All-Big East selection has impressed scouts, thanks to a combination of physicality and speed, and could be the perfect answer for the Jets at nickel back. He's become adept at reading the body language of receivers and is quick to jump routes. He's also a special-teams standout. He averaged 25.1 yards on kickoff returns in 2009 and blocked seven kicks in his career, including three last season.
