The Shutdown Corner Week 1 NFL Preview

5
On the Eagles' insistence that Nnamdi Asomugha can be a slot corner: "I'm not a big believer in Asomugha in the slot. That's me. I know the Eagles still believe that he can still be Charles Woodson Lite, but I don't see that. Again, just a difference of opinion. I would rather see Asomugha line up on the outside snap after snap -- to me, that's what he is. Plus, I've got to tell you -- I loved Brandon Boykin in college, especially in the slot. He played a lot there, and while he's not an especially big kid, he showed all the slot skills. He was physical against the run, and he was a good blitzer. I don't rip coaches, because that's not my approach -- I have tremendous respect for people who do this 18 hours a day. I'm just telling you what I see on film -- in my opinion, Asomugha is not very good in the slot, and I think that Boykin has the potential to be one of the best slot corners in the league."
