67. CALEB FARLEY, CB, VIRGINIA TECH
Targeted 50 times this season, Farley locked down receivers in his coverage better than almost anyone else in the country. In fact, of all cornerbacks who saw at least 25 passes thrown their way, Farley finished second with just a passer rating of 29.2 when targeted. As an example of how impressive that is, a quarterback receives a 39.6 for simply spiking the ball every play, and therefore, signal-callers were statistically better off by throwing the ball away than by testing Farley's coverage this season. He allowed just 19 receptions for 265 yards and one touchdown against four interceptions and another nine pass breakups. He was one of the stingiest cornerbacks in the country when it came to limiting plays, and he did so all across the field.
He lined up in press coverage on 99 snaps and was impressive in both man and zone coverage during his incredible 2019 season.
