Which EFL teams have the best secondary units? After a loaded draft class chock-full of great talent and a frantic offseason that saw a flurry of trades and free agent signings, which team stands above the rest in terms of their defensive backfield? Star EFL writer PigSnout takes us through it in his rankings article.
For this ranking, I am going to rate each EFL team’s secondary coming into Season 8. Since cornerbacks and safeties can be pretty interchangeable, I counted each team’s secondary as their four best cornerbacks or safeties and took the average APE of those players to get a ranking (I used the listed APE on their roster page so this may not account for players who who will be unbanking TPE this season).
