It probably goes as no shock, but Jalen Ramsey, JC Jackson, and Xavien Howard make up the top three best Core Elite corners in Ultimate Team.

Quite honestly, we were shocked to find that the Saints’ Marshon Lattimore hasn’t cracked the top 10. Though, this doesn’t mean he isn’t a quality back in the game.
