Is There Such A Thing As A 3-4 Cornerback?

First off, I would like to apologize for this posting. It will not provide you with any information. There are no answers here, just questions. I would like to call upon our Addicts who have either played organized football or coached it to discuss the following:

Before I ask the questions, I would like to lay this premise: Over the last few years we have essentially played a Cover 2 defense. As we all know, some cornerbacks in the league are considered to be Cover 2 corners. There is no dispute that the past regime has drafted cornerbacks whose primary talents were geared towards the Cover 2 Defense. Brandon Flowers, Brandon Carr, and Maurice Leggett did pretty well playing the Cover 2 in their rookies season and were drafted for such a scheme. Jarrad Page and Bernard Pollard have grown up in the Cover 2.

But, can their talents translate to a 3-4 defense? Does it matter? Will they struggle? Is that why Donald Washington (CB) was drafted? Is there such a thing as a 3-4 Corner? If a 3-4 Defense changes the defensive linemen’s and linebackers’ responsibilities, how does it change the secondary, if at all?

Can you help me out? Sound off Addicts.
