The seven corners on the roster beyond the top three are Jimmy Moreland, Greg Stroman, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Adonis Alexander, Deion Harris, D.J. White, and Ashton Lampkin. We probably won’t see Norman, Dunbar, and Moreau more than a drive or two so we will be able to get a good look at the corners and come away with a better picture of everything.
The key here for these guys will be how well they play in pass coverage and special teams. Rodgers-Cromartie has the most experience but he retired halfway through last season, so showing he hasn’t lost his step and can still be a quality coverage corner will make the difference.

This year’s seventh-round pick Jimmy Moreland has made the most noise in camp and a strong preseason performance can guarantee himself a roster spot come regular-season time.
Stroman, another former seventh-rounder surprised a lot of people as a rookie last year and Pro Football Focus had him ranked as the fifth-best rookie cornerback after the season. With a strong offseason look for Stroman to make a jump and be a better corner and quality special teamer.
Alexander, Harris, White, and Lampkin seem to be on the outside looking in right now but a strong preseason performance from any of these guys can make things interesting as it gets closer to finalizing the 53-man roster.
