Sometimes when you start a new franchise mode, you’re going to be in desperate need of a lockdown corner to lead your defense. While there are many stats to consider when choosing your top guy, one of the most important aspects is the overall speed of the corner. If your cornerbacks are too slow, and can’t keep up with the opposing receiver, then it doesn’t matter how skilled they are. Therefore, we have come up with the following to help you find the fastest cornerbacks in Madden 21

Top 5 Fastest Cornerbacks in Madden 21

Here are the top five fastest cornerbacks in Madden 21:

  1. Donte Jackson (Carolina Panther): 96 Speed, 93 Acceleration
  2. Javelin Guidry (New York Jets): 96 Speed, 93 Acceleration
  3. Denzel Ward (Cleveland Browns): 95 Speed, 95 Acceleration
  4. Parry Nickerson (Jacksonville Jaguars): 95 Speed, 94 Acceleration
  5. Keion Crossen (Houston Texans): 95 Speed, 91 Acceleration

Donte Jackson – Carolina Panthers

Donte ran a 4.32 40-yard dash in the NFL combine and placed 2nd in the 40 Yards of Gold tournament. He’s picked off ten interceptions since entering the league in 2018, and his ridiculous speed is what consistently puts him in a position to make a play. So, it makes sense why D.J. has the top-rated speed in Madden 21. 

Javelin Guidry – New York Jets

The Jets seem to have hit on this one, as the young star put on a show at the NFL combine in 2020 with a 4.29 40-yard dash. Somehow with his tremendous track-and-field background and stunning speed that was put on display at the combine, he went undrafted before signing with the Jets. However, now New York has one of the quickest corners in the game and can shut down any receiver on 3rd and long.

Denzel Ward – Cleveland Browns

Denzel Ward was drafted high in the 2020 NFL draft by the Cleveland Browns and has undoubtedly lived up to the lofty expectations of being a 1st round pick. He’s a lockdown corner that not only boasts an incredible 95-95 split with speed and acceleration, but he also has a tremendously impressive awareness rating (86) given his age. In fact, you could argue that Ward is technically the “fastest” player in the game, as he carries the two highest combined ratings with speed and acceleration.

Parry Nickerson – Jacksonville Jaguars

Even though Nickerson only carries an overall rating of 70, he has a deadly speed/acceleration combo of 95-94, making him the perfect option to add to the end of your lineup. If you develop him correctly, he could turn into a big-time player for your squad, as he can cover any receiver in the game regardless of speed.

Keion Crossen – Houston Texans

Crossen played a solid role with the Texans in 2020, making some key stops in essential situations throughout the season. And even though he also carries a relatively low overall rating (72), his tremendous speed, acceleration, and agility (93), make him a fun pick to add to your squad. His agility is what sets him apart from the crowd, as he can stick with even the most versatile receivers.
