Even before Darrelle Revis was traded to Tampa Bay, he had a huge fan in Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano.

Schiano, who was a defensive backs coach at Penn State and also with the Chicago Bears, studied Revis’ tape years before he was even on his roster.

Thacover2 is reporting that Schiano is smitten with his talents, that he believes Revis is the best cornerback he’s seen in the past 25 years.

Bucs coach Greg Schiano thinks Darrelle Revis is the best cornerback he has evaluated in 25 years. He referenced Aeneas Williams and Deion Sanders as others who were highly impressive because of their coverage skills. “Darrelle is all of those things,” Schiano said. “He’s big, physical, a cover guy, he’ll tackle you. And he works his rear end off. His passion for preparation is something I love.” He said Revis will afford the Bucs the opportunity to take a receiver out of a game and play 10 on 10 — not every snap, but some of the time. “That allows you to do some things,” he said.

If Revis can continue to stay healthy post ACL, there’s no telling where he’ll land when it’s all said and done.  Cornerback is definitely one position that you can debate for hours on end when it comes to the best ever.
