After being drafted nineteenth overall in the 2011 NFL Draft, New York Giants corner back Prince Amukamara missed 12 games of his rookie season. Amukamara’s sophomore season was better as he played in 13 of the team’s 16 games and took over the starting position opposite Corey Webster. Now, as Amukamara is beginning his third season in the NFL he is setting the bar high for himself.

Amukamara wants to be the best corner back on the New York Giants and then become the best corner in the league.

“I want to be the No. 1 corner on this team,” Amukamara said, via Paul Schwartz of the New York Post. “I feel like right now Corey is and my goal is to always just try to beat him out, and I think as soon as I establish myself as the No. 1 corner then hopefully become the No. 1 corner in the whole league. I know that’s going to take work but I mean, guys that came out of my drafting class are doing great, Patrick Peterson and Richard Sherman, those are the guys I kind of compare myself to. I’m just trying to exceed all of them, I guess.”

If Amukamara can stay healthy, he can certainly be a better player and possibly the best on the Giants but I don’t think he can become the best in the league.

I would take the safe bet by believing in players who have already proved themselves instead of thinking Amukamara can be the best in the NFL.

I just don’t see Amukamara playing better than Richard Sherman, Patrick Peterson and Darrelle Revis.

But, maybe Amukamara will prove me wrong.

  • payton is off the hook. SUPER BOWL? great quaterback.

  • payton, great quaterback, SUPERBOWL? YEA!

  • Brick-hand Sanders from the Steelers? Is Manning a receivers coach now? Manning was on his game. Weren’t the Chargers without their starting corners? Still played great. Broncos defense stuffing the Chargers running game was impressive. That 30 yarder floated in there nice. Is it me or does Peyton’s passes look like a 30 yard bomb? That crap won’t work in the playoffs when Ravens defenders are used to practicing against Flacco who throws 70-yarders.
