We will play zone again this year meaning that we don't need a great man coverage guy just a very good zone coverage corner. What gets undervalued here is that great cover 2 schemes have physical safeties who are good in coverage and ferocious hitters who separate receivers from the ball. We could do as well making Hogan the corner and upgrading free safety with a very good guy as we could upgrading cornerback. Best of allwe could do it in the 4th round. Again I am not against upgrading the cornerback position at all. I am simply saying that zone schemes count on everyone playing their position well moreso than needing superstars at every position. I remember when Philly under Johnson had Brian Dawkins patrolling the middle and receivers cared more about where he was at then they did about catching the ball. New rules have taken some of that away but not all.
Eagles corners consisted of Troy Vincent, Bobby Taylor, Sheldon Brown, and Lito Sheppard also. They've always had great corners. I think both need to be addressed. Martin should be cut or benched. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't hang onto Munnerlyn if we draft or sign a starter. Hogan and Butler could do just as fine. Depends on if we believe we could use the extra money elsewhere or not.
