Recently, an NFL analyst tweeted out the best trio of cornerbacks based on the past three seasons.
It provided good and encouraging news for the Las Vegas Raiders. Rock Ya-Sin, who the Raiders acquired in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts for defensive end Yannick Ngakoue in March, was part of the trio that placed in second place. Ya-Sin’s Indianapolis trio were given a grade of perfectly covered defense on 69.16 percent of the plays. You can check out the entire list here:
Here are the best and worst CB trios since 2019 at perfectly covering plays when isolating them from their teammates and only looking at their coverage grade on a given play pic.twitter.com/1KF8nDTp5P— Arjun Menon (@arjunmenon100) June 21, 2022
The Raiders are counting on improved play from their cornerbacks and Ya-Sin will be a big part of the mix. Perhaps his presence can help lift the group in 2022.
