I am becomeing very enamoured with McCourty, who looks like a well balanced CB on tape....how does he look?
It's hard to judge these corners on their physicality and tackling in run coverage because practice hasn't been full contact. Everyone forms up and bangs pads, but there's no tackling taking place. Wilson is a smaller corner (5'10" 190 lbs.) and he looks slightly thin, but we'll have to wait to make judgement on that.
McCourty hasn't really stood out to me. He's been solid at best. I haven't seen him get burnt badly but he also hasnt been making big plays. He's a good mid-round pick but I wouldn't get my hopes up about him being the savior of the Steelers secondary.
