Guide by Hirun Cryer, .

Madden 18 might not be out in the wild just yet, but that hasn't stopped us from putting together this Madden 18 guide based around the best cornerbacks in the game.

Should you need help with the best players at any other position in the game, then head over to our Madden 18 player ratings guide hub, where you can find lists of the best quarterbacks, running backs, tight ends, and more in the game.

The cornerbacks are arguably the main piece of the defensive puzzle on the field, being charged with stopping both receivers and any balls the quarterback throws their way. It's often said you need three good CBs in Madden to lock down your opponent's receivers, and we've got all the best Madden 18 CBs right here.
