CINCINNATIPro Football Focus is a great website and a wonderful resource for some of the most innovative and insightful statistics involved with the game of football. There are so many smart, witty, and genuinely good people that work there and it’s easy to see why the site is such a success.

However, their social media team recently made a terrible mistake regarding the Bengals 2022 roster, as you can see below:

PFF has Eli Apple as the Bengals’ No. 1 cornerback

This list -outside of Apple- is all No. 1 corners in the NFL. Apple is not considered the No. 1 corner on the Bengals: that title belongs to Chidobe Awuzie.

Per Pro Football Focus’ own metrics, Awuzie graded out as the NFL’s third-best corner (84.2) among all corners with at least a 518 coverage snaps last year. He allowed just three touchdowns during the regular season, which tied for seventh-fewest among qualifying corners (41 total players). He did a good job of preventing the deep ball, as well. PFF has Awuzie with the 11th-highest average depth of target (12.3), yet his allowed long of 41-yards was the 10th-lowest mark.

To cap it all off, quarterbacks averaged an eighth-worst 74.8 quarterback rating when targeting Awuzie. He saw his fare share of targets, too. The eighth-most in the league (93), actually. And, he was targeted at the second-highest rate when taking snap-by-snap basis into account (5.2 snaps per target).

Just about everywhere you look, Awuzie’s numbers help back up the fact that not only is he the Bengals No. 1 corner, but he also played like a top-10 corner last year.

Which makes PFF’s decision to choose Apple over Awuzie for this list even more head-scratching.
