Patriots’ Kyle Arrington, Devin McCourty Crack List of Top Cornerbacks on Bleacher Report’s NFL 1,000

Patriots' Kyle Arrington, Devin McCourty Crack List of Top Cornerbacks on Bleacher Report's NFL 1,000When thinking of the New England Patriots, many things come to mind. Though in recent years, a strong secondary isn't one of them.

New England's own Kyle Arrington has played in all 32 regular-season games for the Patriots over the past two seasons, which is great news for a guy who earned his starting role because of an array of injuries to the Pats secondary back in 2010.

Arrington made the most of his starting role last season, hauling in an NFL-leading seven interceptions — six more than his previous career high of one — turning himself into a "ball hawk" and landing the No. 33 spot on Bleacher Report's List of the Top 100 NFL Cornerbacks.

Bleacher Report is compiling a 20-part, 10-week series profiling the top 1,000 current NFL players. Based on Bleacher Report's scoring system, a player can recieve a high score of 100. They are evaluated based in areas such as agility, size, strength and technique.

At the very top of the list you will find yourself stranded on "Revis Island", as the Jets corner Darrelle Revis claimed the spotlight like he does almost every year.

Following Revis on the list is none other than the living legend himself, Green Bay's Charles Woodson. It is no surprise that Woodson was rated this high on the list, as the eight-time Pro-Bowler has 18 interceptions over the past three seasons.

Cleveland's Joe Haden and Philadelphia's Nnamdi Asomugha earned themselves the No. 3 and 4 spot respectively.

The other Patriots, who made the list, were recently signed free-agent Will Allen at No. 53, and  Devin McCourty at No. 68.
