Darrelle Revis is currently and has been the top cornerback in the NFL, since he was drafted in 2007, in round one pick (14th overall) and the first cornerback to be drafted that season. Since then Revis has started in every game with the Jets and in his second season established himself as an All-Pro cornerback. Darrelle Revis is not only popular for his recognition in excellence in football, currently holding an endorsement from NIKE, but his presence extends to the entertainment, fashion, and philanthropic arenas as well.
