Draft preview: Big demand for bigger corners
April 21, 2004
By Pete Prisco SportsLine.com Senior Writer

Take a look at the size of the receivers in this year's draft. Of the top seven receivers, only Wisconsin's Lee Evans is under 6-feet tall. The others are all 6-2 or taller, which can make for tough covers for any corner.

That's why as teams ready for the draft, they do so with an eye on finding corners who can match up and cover the bigger receivers.

A 6-5 receiver against a 5-10 corner in the red zone usually goes by a distinct name: touchdown.

"Look at all the receivers coming out in this draft," New Orleans Saints coach Jim Haslett said. "They're all 6-1, 6-2, 6-3. Some of them are 6-4, 6-5. You aren't going to find a corner that's 6-5. There's one in the draft that's 6-1. So you always look for size. Then you always look for speed." ....

Now we all know that this organization is known for it\'s smokescreens but this sure sounds like an invite for Chris Gamble.

Strike three! Good. But Will Smith?
I\'ve heard the comparisons between him and Darren Howard. I hope that this doesn\'t mean that D.H. is trade bait.
