That didn't happen as often as people suggest.

Also, Jovon Johnson is 5'9" and has been a standout at CB for a lot of years.  I like tall, lanky DBs as much as the next guy, but I like smart, fast ones more......

I miss Juran Bolden

Clearly, you missed Kyries Hebert in his prime.  And one of the best Bomber DB's, ever, was a local kid named Norm Rauhaus - 12 seasons with the BB, 37 INT's, 185 tackles and 4 consecutive GC rings.  I had the pleasure of playing midget football under him for 3 years.

The trend in the CFL is taller receivers who can snag the jump balls which in the Red Zone is $$.  I don?t have an issue per se with short DBs however you need a few back there with size to win battles in the end zone.  We often came up short on jump balls.....

JB and Rod Hill were CB's

A guy I would have on my all-time Bomber defense would be Bobby Evans. Guy could ball.

Bolden was a corner by definition...but he kind of played a rogue role a lot where he would just go and match up with the other teams best threat and play man and just shut em down.

Roy Bennett too was a phenomenal DB...One of the best cover guys i seen come through here too...

I'm way too young for that, lol.

Hebert played safety for us, iirc.

One of the better Bomber CBs not yet mentioned would be David Shaw.

Specifically at the DHB spot, Vince Phason was noteworthy as well. 

On Edit:  I can't believe I forgot to mention Ken Hailey, best DHB I've seen play for the Bombers.  Harold Nash was no slouch either.  And I would be remiss if I failed to mention my great-uncle Ian Gibb, who played DHB for the Bombers from 1949-52.  Of course, he also played Flying Wing, so it might not be an apples-to-apples comparison....
