Chris Price of WEEI.com joins Gary Tanguay on "Uno SportsTonight" from Pats training camp, and they're talking cornerbacks.

Much is expected from second-year corner Ras-I Dowling, who started the season opener as rookie last year then was hurt.

"We didn't see much of him at all," Price said, pointing out that Dowling has a size advantage over the Pats other cornerbacks.

"He's over 6 feet," Price said, "and brings an extra dimension because of it."

As for second-year corner Devin McCourty, Price says: "He wasn't as good as he was a rookie or as bad as he was as a second-year player. I think the difference is somewhere in between."

And Kyle Arrington is best suited as a slot corner, says Price. That's where he's been the majority of the early practices in camp.
