The Commanders could use some cornerback assistance in this draft, which tends to make it exceptionally valuable Porter is nevertheless on the board. Not only is Porter a very good match in Jack Del Rio’s defense as a bump-and-run corner, but his extended arms permit him to challenge massive receivers. The coverage penalties will need to lower.
