Some team will figure it out.
    and none of that because he was a great corner.

    Just calling him a corner at all bothers me.

    Im going to start calling him an undersized LB.

    If you cant play out wide against a receiver, you arent a corner.

    He'll probably play S as a pro.. Hes physical enough, and has some ball skills, and likes to hit as u said.. Hes got enough speed to play there, and we see many guys with worse starting in the league, that don't have his instincts and physical nature..

    Some guys just play this game better then others, regardless of anything measurable wise u can put down.. Maybe Mathieu is one of them...

    Wreh-Wilson had twice that.
    Dangerous Dbs don't get thrown at enough to get crazy amounts of picks. Revis only had 6 the year before last. I guess Stevie brown is better than revis since he had 8 last year

    SIAP but the dude said he stopped counting after failing 10 drug tests at LSU... Don't want him.

    1. CJ Mosley (Alabama, LB)
    2. Odell Beckham Sr. (LSU, WR)
    3. Tre Mason (Auburn, RB)
    4. Anthony Steen (Alabama, OG)

    Revis is a man corner and is easily avoidable by simply just throwing away from the guy he is covering.

    Mathieu was never a man corner. He wasn't even a corner at all. He was a rover in the LSU system which is a hybrid LB/safety position. It is also a position that does not line up in the same spots or have the same responsibility every play, making it very difficult to avoid by opposing QBs. His job was to undercut routes, play zone, blitz, contain......in other words, you never knew where he was going to be.

    It is not a good comparison.

    The Steve Brown example is a good 1 tho as nobody threw away from his side.
