    Defensive back
    Overrated: Justin King, Penn State

    King was one of those guys who came in with a big reputation out of high school and elicited a lot of excitement as a true freshman when Penn State used him in spot duty on offense and as a return man. No question the guy is fast, but I never understood the acclaim as a cornerback. In a game I covered in Happy Valley last season, Ohio State receiver Brian Robiskie basically did whatever he wanted against him. Ditto Mario Manningham in a game the two played their freshman seasons. Great athlete? Yes. Great cornerback? Debatable. And certainly not better than this guy ...

    Underrated: Antoine Cason, Arizona

    Four-year starter. Three-time All Pac-10 honoree. Fifteen career interceptions, including three touchdowns. And a signature, nationally televised performance last season against then second-ranked Oregon in which he scored on both a 42-yard interception return and a 56-yard punt return. I'm not sure you could ask for a more solid, consistent four-year career by a major-conference cornerback (Aqib Talib turned pro early), yet he's only considered a second-rounder, well behind a guy from Troy (Leodis McKelvin) and a guy from Tennessee State (Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie). What more did the guy need to do?


    Obviously writen before the draft.

    Good get AJ so far, lets see if he can play in our system!

    He's definitely got potential.

    We already had the best 1-2 corner duo in the league.

    If Cason pans out, we'll have the best 1-2-3 corner troika in the league!
