One player that people seem to be overlooking is 2nd year cornerback Jonathan Wilhite. I keep hearing people mentioning Butler, Wheatley, Bodden, and Springs, yet no one mentions Wilhite. Recently, I went back and watched the final four games of the season (all of which Wilhite started), and I paid particular attention to the play of Wilhite. In the four games, he never made any major mistakes, showed some surpising physicality, had a couple of deflections, and showed some good fluidity. While I originally thought he would be best in zone as a nickelback, he seemed to play particularly well lining up closer to the line of scrimmage playing man-to-man coverage. There was one play, in week 14 against Seattle that really caught my eye. Seattle receiver Bobby Engram was the split right end, and Wilhite moved up closer to the line in man-to-man with Engram. Engram ended up running a fade to the right sideline and Wilhite backpedaled, turned around, and went stride for stride down the sideline to defend a deep pass from Seneca Wallace. While there has been a lot of hype surrounding the other top 4 corners on the roster, people should not be quick to forget Wilhite. I have a feeling he is going to have a big season in 2009. Anyone else think so?
