I'm not sure why you think this. the more talented DB's are coveted for 1/1 cover schemes. these athletes have all the tools to play man cover -- quickness, good feet & speed. That's not the case with a lot of our guys.
but moreover, playing man against a team that is running crosses & rub routes the majority of their passing plays is suicide. you have to play a lot of zone and try to disrupt the catch, not the route.
