When the Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl in a breakout season for both Tramon Williams and Sam Shields, many believed that they had the best group of cornerbacks in the NFL. Then, last year happened. Williams picked up an injury in Week 2, Shields stagnated (or regressed), and a year more senior version of Charles Woodson certainly didn't look dominant while his teammates struggled around him.

SB Nation has ranked each of the cornerback groups in the NFL, and the Packers are all the way down at No. 22 on Ryan Van Bibber's rankings.

I certainly don't think the Packers are that low on talent and potential, as the run to the Super Bowl in January of 2011 showed, but it's fair to think of them as a bottom-third grouping based on the performance of the Packers' pass defense last season.

Where do you guys think the Packers' cornerback group stacks up against the rest of the league? Do you expect the three guys who led the team in snaps at corner last season to have much better years in 2012?
