I don't really put a lot of importance on size for a corner, as long as they have the necessary skills. Revis is only 5'11" 198 and he's probably the most physical guy around.
A guy with size would be nice, but I see it more as a luxury than a necessity. Even in the NFL, there are not a whole lot of guys with Kirkpatrick's size and skill set.
I agree with what you are saying. That said, I've seen our corners get spaghetti eaten off the top of their heads a lot this year.
I'm not a size guy really. I'm a skill guy.
Geez that sounds sexual......
