Friday Round-Up: Ranks The League's Best Secondaries

Former cornerback Ike Taylor ranked his top-five secondaries across the league for

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Friday, July 7 — about your Seattle Seahawks: Ranks The League's Best Secondaries

Former NFL cornerback and current NFL Network analyst Ike Taylor ranked his top-five secondaries in the NFL heading into the 2017 season. 

Including cornerbacks Richard Sherman and DeShawn Shead, plus safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, Taylor ranked the Seahawks' unit as the second-best crew in the league:

By now, you all know how I feel about Richard Sherman. He's the best corner in the game. The way he prepares is apparent, as he's the best at press coverage and disrupting timing between the quarterback and receiver. DeShawn Shead made big-time progress last season and should keep steadily improving opposite Sherman. Seattle's safety tandem -- Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas -- is the best in the biz. Bam-Bam Kam is the thumper, and Thomas is the traffic-control guy, seeing formations, personnel, schemes, etc., from a distance. Thomas doesn't get enough credit for everything he does, though I think people will start to see his value as he returns to the Legion of Boom following a broken tibia that landed him on injured reserve last December. I don't know about you, but I'm ready to see this guy back on the field.

Denver took the top spot on Taylor's list, while the New York Giants, Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons rounded out the remaining teams.
