player. 45. <p>Height: 5-10</p> <p>Weight: 199</p> <p>After going undrafted in the 2011 NFL Draft, Chris Harris has rapidly become one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. There is no question about him being the best slot corner in the NFL, though he is not widely recognized as being such because, well, Broncos players are surprisingly unknown outside of their fans.</p> <p>Back in April, former Seattle Seahawks CB Walter Thurmond decided to say he was the best slot CB in the NFL. He must’ve taken some lessons from Richard Sherman on running his mouth. Well, it isn’t hard to debunk Thurmond being the best slot corner when Harris actually is. Then Brandon Boykin spoke out as well saying he was the best slot corner. Also easy to debunk in favor of Chriss Harris Jr. Even getting past slot corners, Harris should be mentioned as one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, yet always forgotten.</p> <p>The first part of the table is matching Harris with Thurmond and Boykin. The second half it matching Harris with four other CBs who are often part of the conversation for being the best cornerback.</p> <table> <tbody> <tr> <td width=. Cornerback. Denver Broncos.
