Only three FBS cornerbacks have played more coverage snaps (1,487) or seen more targets (232) over the past four seasons than TCU’s Jeff Gladney, PFF’s seventh-ranked cornerback and No. 34 overall player in the 2020 NFL Draft. The former three-star recruit and New Boston, Texas, native practically never left the field after redshirting as a true freshman (2015) and will enter the NFL as one of the more battle-tested cornerbacks in the upcoming class as a result.
His career coverage grade (89.8) ranks ninth among all FBS cornerbacks with at least 1,000 coverage snaps played over the past four collegiate seasons (2016-19). He also ranks first in completion percentage allowed (47%), third in forced incompletion percentage (21.1%) and seventh in passer rating allowed (72.3) among the same group of cornerbacks.
Gladney’s high-end production and experience puts him in a league of his own in this class. He’s played over 250 more coverage snaps in the past four seasons than any of PFF’s top 10 cornerbacks in this class. He also has 42 more targets than any of the 10 cornerbacks in that span.
