I really like all our corners to be honest. They all have been taking the heat. PROB and White the most. I love that they are a very young group and that bodes well for the future. As I've stated before and others its the play of your D-line and your safties covering up your blown coverages that can make or break a CB unit.
I totally agree with this assessment. Don't get me wrong, both P-Rob & White have made their share of errors but they have also made their share of nice plays as well.
What seems to be overlooked by some fans is that this pair has been left out to dry at times by the safeties especially when they are expecting safety help & the safeties are late getting over or completely out of position. The fans see P-Rob or White getting passes completed on them but they don't see that there was supposed to be safety help to the inside or over the top so they blame the corner when reality the mistake is on the safety.
In the first 3 games, White had a few problems presnap in getting lined up in the correct defense but in the last two games he's cut down on those mistakes. Those types of mistakes should be expected from a rookie 5th round pick out of Samford thrust in as a starter in a complex zone scheme. It may not have felt like it early on but if White is mentally strong, his being thrown in the fire early may reap benefits in the long run.
