I don't think you can say smaller/bigger corners are susceptible to this and that - jason david was around 5"9 and got burnt all the time, patrick peterson is 6"1 maybe 6"2 and has some of the fastest feet and change of direction I've seen in a while

it all depends on the player, not their physical attributes

Re: Tall Corners VS Shorter Corners

do they have the control of their athletic ability in the end to make a play on the ball no matter who they are covering.

can the guy cover or not? that is all it really boils down to.

it is up to the DC to get the proper match ups each and every time.

Re: Tall Corners VS Shorter Corners

Physicality and athleticism are more important than height.

6'1" but can't get in the air or isn't physical enough isn't going to do much against Gronk, Graham, etc...

Bills have traded 6th rounder for Williams.

Re: Tall Corners VS Shorter Corners

Yea I agree with both of y'all but usually the top CB which in this case is Keenan Lewis will stick people like megatron Dez Bryant and Larry Fitzgerald. The second CB usually stick the not so big receivers that are less of a problem. The only team we will have a problem with is Atlanta with Roddy White and Julio Jones to big receivers. But looking at the teams we will play this year we should be fine because the AFC North isn't as good as the were before.

Re: Tall Corners VS Shorter Corners

This has the same feel as the tall vs short QB debate.

Re: Tall Corners VS Shorter Corners

When Payton first came to town he brought in tons of CB's. Not so much lately though. Maybe he needs to rethink his priorities.

Re: Tall Corners VS Shorter Corners

We have big corners already. What we don't have is a quick, agile guy who can cover those squirty little slot receivers and has a nose for the ball. Fred Thomas was about as tough and instinctive as anybody I've ever seen so it didn't much matter that he was only 5-9.
