I know magnus has said in the past that he likes TR more than any other of the "midget corner backs" out of cass tech (those were his words, I'm not bagging on TR) so I am wondering what sets him apart from the others?

I know Dior Mathis and B. Cissoko were highly touted coming out of HS so I am wondering what makes TR better and can give people who are still a little gun shy about getting another "midget corner" into the fold? 

I am not one who is great on evaluating talent and would like to hear from those on the board who are far better at it than I am. Thanks.

"Midget cornerbacks" was my term, so I'll take responsibility for it.

The biggest difference for me is that Terry Richardson is a bigger playmaker than Cissoko or Mathis.  He had 9 picks as a junior, whereas I think Cissoko had about 3 in his career and Mathis had about 9 total in his career.  To me Richardson has the "it factor" even though he's still somewhat small.  I thought Cissoko had the physical skills (his technique and feet were GREAT) but he lacked the mentality (obviously) and instincts.  Mathis just looked like a superior athlete who doesn't have much technique or natural ball skills.  He's quick and fast, but he couldn't judge the ball when it was in the air and didn't make plays on the ball unless it was thrown directly at him.

Some guys just have "it" (like Kellen Jones, who isn't especially big or fast but just seems to get the job done), and I think Richardson falls into that category.

and I wasn't trying to be a dick with the midget corner backs reference, because I was of the same opinion (I just didn't use the term). I thought it was funny and didn't want others to think I came up with it on my own.

I admit the smaller corners were worrying me given our recent track record, but as I said, I am not good at evaluating talent so I thought I would ask someone that was. Thanks again.
