    Antoine Cason, Sr. Arizona
    Cason's a bona fide lock-down corner and one of the premier defensive backs in the country. A three-time member of the All-Pac-10 team, his decision to put off the NFL for one more year was one of the biggest off-season developments for the program. With Cason roaming the secondary, it basically cuts off half the field for opposing quarterbacks. He's been one of the league's most productive defenders from day one, and now will force every quarterback to know where he is at all times.

    Jack Ikegwuonu, Jr. Wisconsin
    He's big, physical, and very, very fast making 41 tackles on the year with two interceptions and 11 broken up passes. He made a national name for himself by chasing down Arkansas star running back Darren McFadden, and now the spotlight will be on him all season long when he matches up against the top receivers in the league. He'll also be one of the Big Ten's premier tackling corners.

    2007 CFN Preseason Second Team All-Americans

    Brandon Flowers, Jr. Virginia Tech
    There's been some sensational corners at Virginia Tech over the years, but the 5-10, 190-pound Flowers could be the best of the bunch. A good tackler with 51 stops last season, he was a rock when the ball was in the air with three interceptions and 18 broken up passes. While he doesn't have the raw speed of DeAngelo Hall, and he's not as big and physical as Jimmy Williams, he has the potential to be a first round draft pick and grow into a truly special corner if he keeps working.

    Trae Williams, Sr. South Florida
    Now a third-year starter in the secondary, the converted running back has blossomed into the proverbial lockdown corner and one of the premier defensive backs in the Big East. He led the league with seven interceptions in 2006, but could have had more if opposing quarterbacks weren’t so timid about throwing to his side of the field.
