Perimeter players

My post the other day on "Power or Finesse" helped me answer a few questions I had and informed me on matters I hadn't even thought to question, thanks to Satchmo and others.  Feeling pretty good about the fundamentals in the trenches.  I feel like the o-line is going to get a good surge at the snap.  I feel like the d-line is going to hold the center, and get a good push.  With these fundamentals in place, it's less likely that mis-evaluation of the so-called skill players will happen. 

I'm now pondering issues on the perimeter. 

Chiefs are one big name (or great no-name stepping-up) from being set at starting WR.  What are the chances of their developing a guy already in-house to be a viable starter?  What are the chances of their signing a Boldin/Burress/... in FA? 

On the other side of the ball, how good, REALLY, are our corners?  How aggressive, REALLY, will they be able to play on the perimeter?  If the D is headed the way I think (and hope) it's headed, there could be a couple guys that we all like from last season, who might not fit.  There are guys who might start to shine, with a front 7 that actually gets consistent pass-hurrying pressure.

Other questions: 

Which is better: 

  • CB takes inside leverage and uses the sideline as 12th defender
  • CB takes outside leverage and directs the WR towards inside help

Which is correct:

  • CB's feet are under their shoulders, parallel to the line of scrimmage at the snap - I see this a lot, but don't get it.  What's the purpose?
  • CB's have one foot forward, one foot back at the snap.
