The NFL's best outside cornerbacks, No 6: Josh Norman, Redskins

It will be tough for Norman to top his 2015 campaign but his new home should set him up nicely. 

Norman’s stock skyrocketed in the first month of the 2015 season thanks to four interceptions and two pick-sixes, and I’ll go to battle for his game-clinching pick against the Saints in Week 3 as the best individual play of the year. That start was enough to scare offenses away from trying him often the rest of the way. Receivers will continue to test his physicality, but in Washington he should have another stout defensive front to pressure quarterbacks into the rushed decisions he reads and reacts to so smoothly.
