Here is a very insightful ranking made by PFF's Anthony Treash. You can see where he ranked our own stud CB Jaylon Jonshon and a quick explanation of why he is ranked where he is!

The increase in dominant outside receivers makes it all the more important for NFL defenses to invest in top-tier outside cornerbacks — the guys who are tasked with shutting down opposing passing attacks.
Below are PFF's top 32 outside cornerbacks entering the 2022 NFL season, starting with Los Angeles Rams star Jalen Ramsey. Keep in mind that the cornerback position has a steep learning curve, hence why some of the 2022 NFL Draft‘s promising rookies didn't make the cut.
Treash had Johnson ranked in the tier called TIER 5: UP-AND-COMERS.
28. JAYLON JOHNSON, CHICAGO BEARS
Mild panic set in once the media saw Johnson running with the second-team unit during OTAs, but head coach Matt Eberflus said it was nothing to look too much into. Johnson has already shown enough for his ceiling to be a true CB1. Despite snagging just one interception since entering the league in 2020, the 6-foot, 195-pound cornerback ranks eighth in forced incompletion rate (15.3%) since then. If Johnson can reel in his occasional over-aggressiveness, he can significantly climb these rankings.

I feel like 28 is a little low. However, I liked his analysis and I also believe that with a little better coaching on decision-making, Jaylon could truly climb into the first few tiers of elite corners in the NFL.
