2 interceptions, 7 forced fumbles

What position group creates the most turnovers in the NFL? Defensive coordinators will tell you safeties get their share of interceptions and that linebackers and ends typically lead the league in forced fumbles (though not all are recovered for a turnover). But no one really disputes that cornerbacks rule the roost, as this list of the interceptions/forced fumble leaders since 2000 confirms. Corners led or tied for the league lead in interceptions/forced fumbles in 9 of the 12 years since the start of the millennium. The only linebacker to make the list was Terrell Suggs, whose two picks and league-high seven forced fumbles and career-high 14 sacks for the third-ranked Ravens defense make him one of the favorites for the 2011 Defensive Player of the Year award.
