4. Xavier Rhodes, Vikings
Like our top three, Rhodes is big for the corner position (6-1, 218 pounds) and a former first-round draft choice, which is pretty much where you find the special cover men these days. Like Ramsey, Rhodes also played his college ball at Florida State. Rhodes was named to his second consecutive Pro Bowl last season, his fifth overall, and was a first-team All Pro for the first time. While he benefits from playing behind the best defensive line and pass rush in the game, and alongside other great defensive backs in Minnesota in Harrison Smith, Trae Waynes and Terence Newman, Rhodes draws the opponents’ top receiver each week.
