From the time KJ got here his strength was his tackling. I recall posting - during one of many bash KJ threads - that a corner has another job that's almost as important as having good cover skills and that's how he does against the run. KJ was fearless when coming up and forcing RBs back inside if not knifing in to make the tackle himself.
Weak cover skills can be schemed around if not too awful. But the inability of your CBs to force the run back inside where they have help... that's a lot harder to hide.
