As one of the best wide receivers of the NFL’s current generation, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill has been tasked with going up against plenty of talented cornerbacks.

He recently named Patrick Peterson, Chris Harris Jr., Jalen Ramsey and Xavien Howard as the toughest he’s ever had to face.

Peterson is an eight-time Pro Bowler and still going strong in the 2023 season with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He’s best known for his time on the Arizona Cardinals, however. He spent 10 seasons there and made three All-Pro teams.

Harris is currently out of the league after spending last season with the New Orleans Saints. He spent nine seasons with the Broncos, earning four Pro Bowl selections and three All-Pro selections.

Ramsey is in his first season with the Dolphins after spending time with the Jacksonville Jaguars and Los Angeles Rams. He missed multiple games to start the 2023 season, but has returned in a strong manner and picked off three passes in five games.

As for Howard, he’s intercepted one pass and defended eight of them in 10 games with the Dolphins this season. He’s spent his entire professional career with Miami since being selected in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Hill has never been shy about giving praise to his opponents and teammates, and this situation is no different.

The 29-year-old is enjoying a career year in his second season in Miami, as he’s caught 93 passes for 1,481 yards and 12 touchdowns. He’s on pace to surpass his stated goal of 2,000 receiving yards.

The Dolphins are 9-3 ahead of their Week 14 matchup on Monday night against the Tennessee Titans. They need to win if they want to regain control of the AFC’s No. 1 seed from the Baltimore Ravens.
