With the various rule changes favoring wide receivers it doesnt pay to select just a "shut down" corner anymore. Hall is a traditional deion sanders type of "shut down" corner who shys away from contact and relies on his speed and covering ability to excell.

Dunta is part of a new breed of dual threat "safety" corners (winfield, antrell rolle, etc.) who are just as good at hitting/stopping the run/ tackling in the flats, as they are at speed and man coverage. IMO, these hybrid corners are going to be the playmakers of the position in years to come.
