Welcome to the fourteenth installment of the "Greatest Buckeyes Ever" poll - this one allows you to vote for the best Buckeye cornerback. Every Saturday, we will post a poll on "Who's the Greatest Buckeye" at each of the positions. The last poll, head coach, will open on the day of THE GAME, and close on December 30th. By New Years Day, we will have the Buckeye Planet All-Time Buckeye Team.

All players selected for the poll will be from the "modern era", which we have more-or-less arbitrarily determined to have begun with the hiring of Woody Hayes in 1951. However, there will be special polls for the current Buckeyes and older Buckeye stars, where you will be allowed to choose amongst such greats as Les Horvath, Vic Janowicz, Chic Harley, etc.

Please vote on each poll, if you can. Also, please note that each poll will allow you to vote at least twice, as we would like to compile a first and second team. If you vote for "other", please let us know your selection(s) by setting forth the name(s) in a post.

Polls will be posted as follows:

1. Quarterback (CLOSED - Rex Kern is the first team QB, with Craig Krenzel as the second team selection)
2. Tailback (CLOSED - no surprise: Archie is first team, Eddie is second)
3. Athlete (CLOSED - Paul Warfield and Chris Gamble are first team; Cie Grant and Brian Bashnagel are second)
4. Fullback (CLOSED - Pete Johnson first team and Jim Otis second team)
5. Wide Receiver (CLOSED - Cris Carter and David Boston first team, Michael Jenkins and Joey Galloway second team)
6. Tight End (CLOSED - John Frank first team, Rickey Dudley second team)
7. Offensive Tackle (CLOSED - Orlando Pace, John Hicks, and Korey Stringer first team; Jim Davidson and Chris Ward second team)
8. Offensive Guard (CLOSED - Jim Lachey and Jim Parker first team; Rob Murphy and Ken Fritz second team)
9. Offensive Center (OPEN - LeCharles Bentley and Jeff Uhlenhake lead)
10. Defensive Tackle (OPEN - Dan Wilkinson and Jim Stillwagon lead, with Tim Anderson and Jim Marshall closing in)
11. Defensive End (OPEN - Mike Vrabel and Will Smith lead)
12. Linebacker (OPEN - Chris Spielman leads, with Randy Gradishar, Andy Katzenmoyer, Tom Cousineau, and Pepper Johnson also showing well)
13. Safety (OPEN - Jack Tatum and Michael Doss lead)
14. Cornerback (OPEN)
15. Kicker
16. Punter
17. Current Buckeyes
18. "Old Time" Buckeyes
19. Head Coach

So, please vote now for your All-Time Greatest Buckeye Cornerback; please make FOUR selections.

Note: Most of the candidates were All-Americans: Arnie Chonko ('64); Ted Provost ('69); Tim Anderson ('70); Neal Colzie ('74); Shawn Springs ('96); and Antoine Winfield ('97-'98); Mike Guess was a three-time All Big Ten selection ('77-'79), and Garcia Lane ('83) and Ahmed Plummer ('99) each made the team once.

Chris Gamble has already made the BP all star team as an "athlete"

Thanks for your participation.
