Fact or Fiction about the best all-around Defender

Fact or Fiction: CB Adam Jones was the best all-around defender in the draft.

Fiction: Pac-Man Jones is an elite corner with tremendous speed, but he might not even be the best cornerback in the draft. Antrel Rolle's size, toughness and ability to provide run support elevates the Miami product to the same level with Jones. But both cornerbacks trail Derrick Johnson in the best defender category. Despite slipping down to Kansas City at No. 15, the Texas linebacker is the best overall defender in the draft. Johnson is active, has sideline-to-sideline range and can blitz the quarterback or drop into coverage. Teams drafting to fill specific needs is the reason for his draft-day slip. Look for Johnson to have the biggest impact of the Class of 2005 defenders.
