Marshon Lattimore has been one of the league's best cornerbacks since entering the NFL in 2017. He's already been named to two Pro Bowls in just three seasons in the league, and he's racked up an impressive 8 interceptions during that span.

But despite all that, Lattimore still isn't getting the respect he deserves. At least, not in this CBS Sports ranking of the NFL's 10 best cornerbacks.

Simply put, Lattimore is much better than the 10th-best cornerback in the league. In fact, since he entered the NFL in 2017, only Stephon Gilmore has graded out better in man coverage than Lattimore, according to Pro Football Focus.

Having Lattimore ranked behind Xavien Howard, who hasn't even played a full season since 2017, and Chris Harris, who is coming off a down year with the Denver Broncos, just doesn't feel right.

But with Lattimore poised for another dominant campaign in 2020, it should only be a matter of time before he begins climbing up the rankings.
