I don't care if I never hear "long corner" again.

Just get someone who can be sticky in coverage and play the ball.  

I'm tired of that description to.  What ever happened to a CB that can stick to his man and blanket him?  I get that receivers are taller and run like deer, but a shut down corner is more about technique, heart and athleticism than anything else.

Exactly.  I mean if everything is equal, I'd rather have a 6'2 corner.  But everything is seldom equal.  6'2 guys are usually much more linear and don't have as much hip swivel.  

If you really care about length that matters, you'd look toward 5'11 to 6'0 guys that still have the cornering skills of smaller guys and focus on the ones with arm length.

But this is a position where having bad feet or hips really can't be overcome.
