Hi all, After watching the first two preseason games and looking at the young CB, I must say that I am really impressed. Before I go any further, though, I offer my . . . Disclaimer: I understand that it's only been two preseason games and teams, for the most part, hold some things back in favor of regular season action. I know things can change and he still has much to learn. We should expect some growing pains once it really counts. Now . . . I am really excited about this kid. He showed a nasty, physical nature last night that I don't think we've seen since Ty Law left. It's now been two really good passing teams that NE has faced, and Devin held his own in BOTH games. He not only held his own against ATL, but he shined, particularly on the pass break up where he manhandled Roddy White. White was looking for a PI call that never came. That play was reminiscent of Ty Law handling Marvin Harrison in the AFCCG years back. The kid has shown toughness, quickness, and plays the ball well. His future looks very promising. We've all been talking nickel corner, but if this continues, I would not at all be surprised to see him supplant Butler as the starter opposite Bodden. Now, I'm not saying that's an absolute by any stretch obviously, but it's highly probable should McCourty continue to excel going into, and playing through, the regular season. I, for one, have been more impressed with McCourty's play thus far than Butler's. It would appear his future is bright. In fact, I'd almost like to see BB give special teams duties to someone else and allow the young corner to focus exclusively on being a corner. He looks like he has tremendous upside at the position. Guys, we could be looking at a special player in the making. Disclaimer 2: I didn't have the chance to watch him because we don't get any Rutgers games in my area. So, needless to say, I was highly upset when his name was called on draft day. I just didn't know anything about him and didn't think corner is the position that would be addressed in the first round. However, I think I may be eating my words in the next few years.
