CORVALLIS--Two longtime, productive starters from last year are now gone, both NFL Draft selections.…
POLL: The right cornerback
Or is there another corner, like David Ross or Keynan Parker, waiting in the wings who will make a claim?
Much of what will determine who the starter is has yet to unfold -- it will happen in fall camp, now only about a month away. No one seized the job ot made a heads-and-shoulders-above statement this spring, though Henderson and Hardin each missed time to injury this spring.
Dockery is incredibly athletic, it's a matter of how fast his corner acumen can rise to match. Hardin can flat out fly, as seen last year on special teams, and has rare size for a corner (6-2, 206) and some think he might be best suited to safety. Meanwhile, Henderson quietly this spring was the wily veteran out there -- though he hasn't yet been able to separate himself from the competition.
It shouldn't be forgotten that Brandon Hughes and Keenan Lewis struggled in starting roles their first season, and they became NFL Draft picks. But the Beavs would dearly love to see one of the corner candidates jump up early in the fall, seize the job with both hands and take it to the house.
So here's the question: Who lines up at right corner in the Beavs' opener?
