    PFW SCOUT'S NOTEBOOK: GIANTS COREY WEBSTER

    SCOUT'S NOTEBOOK: GIANTS COREY WEBSTER

    "
    CB Corey Webster


    New York
    Giants

    Height: 6-0 1/8 Weight:
    201 Speed: 4.52




    Notes: Drafted by the Giants in the second round (43rd
    overall) of the 2005 NFL draft after a standout career at LSU, where he
    initially began his career as a receiver before converting to cornerback.
    Finished college career with 117 tackles, 51 pass breakups and 16 interceptions.
    Started two games late in the season as an NFL rookie in '05, finishing with
    37-5-0, contributing mostly on special teams. Entered the starting lineup at
    left cornerback in '06, and notched 41-11-1, missing four games with a toe
    injury. Started the first three games in '07 before being benched, but came on
    strong late in the season and really stepped up in the playoffs, shutting down
    Terrell Owens of the Cowboys and grabbing the game-deciding interception against
    Green Bay to earn a spot in the Super Bowl. Was rewarded with a five-year, $43.5
    million contract with $20 million guaranteed in December 2008 after recording a
    career-best 50-24-3 in 16 starts at left cornerback. Missed the final three
    games in '09 with a knee injury, finishing with 51-12-1 in 13 starts. Started
    the first 15 games in '10 before sitting out the finale with a rib injury,
    tallying 50-12-4. Has started all 13 games in '11, notching 41-11-4.




    Positives: Outstanding eyes, instincts and route recognition
    — reads the quarterback, understands the route tree and has an innate feel for
    coverage. Has excellent body length, with very long arms, and disrupts receivers
    at the line of scrimmage. Very good press-cover skills — seldom loses position,
    is very quick to plant and drive and attacks the ball like a receiver in front
    of him. Is willing to mix it up in run support and does not back down from a
    challenge. Confident and highly competitive.




    Negatives: Lacks top-end acceleration, closing speed and
    burst and can struggle to recover when he is beat — not explosive transitioning
    out of his breaks. Is not as comfortable in off coverage as he is on the line.
    Durability has been a concern throughout his career, dating back to his days at
    LSU — has been hampered by lower-body injuries. Was not confident supporting the
    run early in his career and is not always quick to support.




    Summary: Is regularly matched up against the opponent's top
    receiver and has risen to the occasion with the challenge, demonstrating a
    terrific understanding and feel for the nuances of the position and showing a
    knack for making big plays. Stands out most for his ball skills, zone instincts
    and press-cover skills that were groomed at LSU under the guidance of Nick
    Saban, one of the finest developers of defensive backs in the country. Has shown
    he can match up well against size, handling Brandon Marshall and Larry
    Fitzgerald, and has played at a Pro Bowl level."

    [quote user="Sundown"]And yet Fewell will play zone w/man to man press corners on the roster, sigh....[/quote]ALL of our corners are press guys, and Fewell understandibly plays a hybrid D, but he uses WAAAAAY too much zone, off the line coverage for my liking


    Draft Wishlist:
    1st Round- Shane Ray, DE, Mizzou
    2nd Round- Erick Striker, OLB, Oklahoma
    3rd Round- Cody Prewitt, FS, Miss
    4th Round- Zach Vigil, LB, Utah St

    FA Wishlist: Re-Sign JPP, Hynoski, and sign Iupati

    Because not every member of the secondary is as talented as Webster and Phillips
