Easily the best lockdown corner in the game, New York's Corey Webster will be expected to shut down his receiver while in single coverage for most, if not all, of Super Bowl XLVI.
On the year, Webster led the Giants with 16 passes defended and six interceptions while also recording 51 tackles.
Against the Patriots, he'll mostly be responsible for locking on Deion Branch as the linebackers get physical in the box with Tom Brady's tight ends.
Also, expect safety Antrel Rolle to roll down quite often to help with run support and to keep a secondary defender on slot man Wes Welker. As for Webster, going against Branch, a former Super Bowl MVP, won't be an easy task.
That being said, if the rest of Big Blue's defense proves dominant versus Gronk, Hernandez and Welker, Branch will receive more targets from Brady. Webster will then have to answer the call and respond with tight coverage throughout.
We're talking press coverage, press then bail and a late rolldown just before the snap to press again. Obviously the theme is to remain physical and decrease any chance of separation, as doing so will then increase the odds of an interception.
