Rank the AFC West: CBs

This is a thread for the Addicts among us.  Who among the AFC West sports the best CBs, and who sports the worst?

Vote in comments, and be sure to keep track of your votes as this series rolls on. It could be interesting to see how good you think each team is once you add up all your rankings.

The following are your depth charts at CB:

Denver Broncos: Champ Bailey, Perrish Cox, Andre Goodman, Nate Jones, Syd’Quan Thompson

Kansas City Chiefs: Brandon Flowers, Brandon Carr, Javier Arenas, Jalil Brown, Travis Daniels

Oakland Raiders: DeMarcus Van Dyke, Chris Johnson, Stanford Routt, Chimdi Chekwa, Jeremy Ware

San Diego Chargers: Quentin Jammer, Antoine Cason, Marcus Gilchrist, Donald Strickland, Shareece Wright

My vote after the jump. Yours is invited in comments.

1. Kansas City Chiefs — I’m not really overwhelmed by any of the corner squads in this division, but the Chiefs come the closest to having a really good corps. Flowers and Carr are among the better starting tandems in the league, and Arenas is a fine nickel. Daniels and the rookie Jalil Brown are good depth guys. 

2. San Diego Chargers — The Chargers also feature a pretty good starting tandem in Jammer and Cason, but neither one of them can put on the performances that Flowers and Carr are capable of.  Gilchrist and Wright are really solid rookie selections, Wright especially.

3. Denver Broncos —  The Broncos actually have a pretty crappy all around CB corps with one Hall of Fame exception in Champ Bailey.

4. Oakland Raiders — After losing their All Pro corner, the Raiders have little or nothing, although there is some rookie talent.

So, assuming a 1st is 4 points, and a 4th is 1 point, this is my individual position scoreboard so far:

Chargers: 39
Chiefs: 36
Broncos: 24
Raiders: 21
