Jason McCourty: Could warrant interest as a nickel and dime defender and kickoff returner, where he showed promise late in the season.

Devin McCourty: Lean, athletic, quick-footed cornerback with legit speed, movement skills and explosion to match up at the next level. Ordinary ball skills limit his ceiling, but should be able to contribute readily as a core special-teams player and nickel defender. Low-risk selection with starter potential.

It's becoming pretty clear that a lot of people undervalued Jason, and it's pretty obvious that helped Devin from an exposure standpoint with scouts. And from the looks of it (remember, Devin was taking some first-team reps by the end of the spring), both guys have pretty serious NFL futures.
