Is Richard Sherman a top corner in the NFL? Nope, according to New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who said this week that the Seahawks defensive star doesn't deserve to be in the conversation.

Cromartie said, via an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio, that Sherman is simply a product of his supporting cast.

"Go play in a defense where you don't have two All-Pro safeties," he said, referring to Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. "That's what I would tell him.

"Go follow the No. 1 receiver. Follow him around for a whole entire game and let's see what you can do," Cromartie continued. "Darrelle Revis has done that his whole career. I've done that. Patrick Peterson has done it. Joe Haden has done it. [Sherman] is the only defensive back that hasn't."

"If you want to label yourself as the No. 1 corner, the best corner in the NFL, follow the best guy on every single team."

Cromartie is right. Revis has covered the #1 receiver on opposing teams for most of his career with the Jets and New England Patriots.

What do you think? Does he had a point? Or, is he just a hater?
