Richard Sherman, Seattle Seahawks
The third year defensive back waisted no time making an impact in the league. His 2012 campaign was highlighted by an All-Pro selection after he recorded eight interceptions. Which makes sense since the 6-3 corner back has a 38 inch standing vertical. That’s more than NBA dunker extraordinaire, Vince Carter. Sherman ended 2013’s regular season with his first Pro-Bowl selection. With Revis Island looking mighty deserted in Tampa Bay, the title for best shutdown corner in the NFL might be Sherman’s for the taking.
