#2 CHRIS HARRIS JR. CB- 93 OVERALL

Harris Jr. is the closest thing to a lock down man to man coverage defender in Madden NFL 17. His 89 speed, 96 acceleration, and 94 man coverage ranks him tops in the league for man to man defenders.
#3 RICHARD SHERMAN CB-92 OVERALL
89 SPD-90 ACC-96 AGI-88 MCV-94 ZCV
No one would say Sherman lacks confidence and his ratings back that up in Madden NFL 17. Sherman will be best used in Zone with his 94 zone coverage rating.
#4 PATRICK PETERSON CB -91 OVERALL

Peterson is one of the games fastest defenders with 93 speed. Take advantage of his 92 man coverage rating and leave him in 1v1 situations. You can roll safety coverage towards other areas of the field and feel confident he will get the job done on the outside.
#5 DARRELLE REVIS CB-91 OVERALL
89 SPD-92 ACC-90 MCV-86 ZCV
You don’t get the nickname Revis Island without having the ability to lock up opposing receivers on the outside. With 89 speed, 92 acceleration and 90 man coverage Revis still has the ability to play lockdown coverage on the outside.
