Bearcats corner Ahmad Gardner, the best cover man in all of college football, was ranked the number 5 player in the country by PFF. PFF deploys a wide range of stats to show that Gardner is virtually without equal among shutdown corners. The most eye-opening of these stats is that nobody has ever beat him for a touchdown.
Edge rusher Myjai Sanders checks in at number 34 on the list, citing the 6’5 speed rusher as a constant menace to opposing passing games.
Note that no players from any other American Athletic Conference schools earned a spot on the list.
