Joe Haden: The Numbers, The Tape, The Verdict 2014

Joe Haden is widely accepted as one of the best young cornerbacks in the NFL. He is still just 25 years of age, despite playing four years in the league already, and he recently signed a massive contract extension. Haden doesn't have the quickness of Darrelle Revis or the size of Richard Sherman, but is he one of the top three cover corners in the NFL?

This would've been really handy a week ago when discussing his value versus Sherman and others, but thanks for this anyways. I had mistakenly thought you had already done Haden's breakdown when it was actually Hall's, and the website was down last week so I couldn't check. Given how he was being talked about by Cleveland fans and others, the conclusion here was rather surprising.

Fahey did write an article on Haden in the recent past, and also did not think nearly as high of him as most everyone else:

I'm not seeing a link to the actual article (link in the title takes you to bleacher report). In fact I can't find the article on presnapreads either.

The article is on BR. I write for a few websites so my articles will appear in different places.
