The 2015 NFL Draft is closing in upon us, and in a little less than a week we’ll finally get to see how this whole draft picture plays out and who the Green Bay Packers will add to their roster.

In anticipation of the draft, I put together my position-by-position rankings, taking a close look at the top prospects in this class and who Green Bay could target come draft day.

Earlier this week, we already broke down the top defensive linemen, edge rushers, and inside linebackers.

Today, we’ll take a look at the cornerback class, which is another major need on their roster.

This defensive back class is deep in the early rounds, and there’s a good chance the Packers could leave one of the first two days of the draft with a starting-caliber corner.

When ranking players, I like to group them into four tiers during the pre-draft process and then rank the players within those tiers.

Tier One: Potential impact players at the next level.

Tier Two: Players who could be solid starters or make contributions as a rookie.

Tier Three: Developmental prospects who have some upside but may not be ready to contribute immediately.

Tier Four: Role players who could offer depth to the roster.

Here is our ranking for the top 30 cornerbacks in the 2015 NFL Draft.
