Mmqb/peter King - 10 Things I Think I Think - #5

5. I think if I were the Giants at No. 9, I’d take Trae Waynes over Brandon Scherff. Rare cornerbacks—and the 6-1, sub-4.4-in-the-40 Waynes is potentially quite rare—are harder to find than very good offensive line prospects. Pro Football Focushas Waynes with problems on change of direction, which would be a issue with a cornerback, so it’ll be interesting to see how teams factor that in—if they agree—as the first round approaches.

^^^^I have not thought about Trae Waynes for even a second leading up to reading this article a few moments ago......However, if Falcons are working out all of these corners, why not this one? However, it does seem we are only working out late 1st rd and later CBs. Peter King is right about one thing though - great corners w/ size are very rare.

I'm just not a fan of Waynes. Don't think his ceiling is that much higher than Alford's despite group think around here thinking Alford is garbage. Definitely don't think he's worth the #8 pick. Would rather take Rollins at #42

I don't like Waynes much so I'd dislike it, but someone good will slip into the second. At that point you have to start thinking hard. Have mentioned it before but Landon Collins there or in a trade down wouldn't bother me at all.

I have not even scouted Waynes - that is how far off my radar he has been. If Waynes was Darrelle Revis, Champ Bailey, Richard Sherman or Patrick Peterson he would be worth the pick - alas, I don't think he is.

If we go CB at 8 i'm going ham on this MB.

2013 draft we spend a 1st and 3rd on Tru and a 2nd on Alford. Which already makes me mad every time i even think about it. Our first 3 picks on 2 CB's. D.U.M.B. move Dimitroff. My least favorite move this franchise has probably ever made.

If Quinn is even halfway decent of a coach he will be able to coach up Alford or Southward to be a capable starter opposite Trufant.

Julio trade was my least fav move, this team lost it's focus ever since. Not Julio's fault, he's great, but based on your take (3 picks for 2 Cbs) we used 5 for 1 WR

Dimitroff should have been fired for making this move alone. That's FIVE players we cannot ever get back--and everyone wonders why we have no depth on this team. Now that I think about it, if we had those five picks Dimitroff probably would have drafted more Montana players.

If u think about it this really is the best strategy for dummy trough...he only succeeds when making no-brainer picks, so trading up for obvious talent is really the only viable option. Once he's beyond the 2nd round, drawing names out of a hat would probably net us better players than his "talent evaluation".

Sherman was an after thought tho...no one projected he'd be as good as he turned out to be...and you still can't put him on an island like Revis. over the top help will always be needed...

but back to Falcons...i listened to Quinn on 92.9 today and CB was second word outta his mouth after edge rusher. after that, he said some people won't be playin' in the same position as last year. and i say again, Southward will be the starting RCB unless he just stinks it up in camp...

I think we will have the option of trading back if choose to. But if our desired pass rusher isn't there I'd no problem taking Wayens ,La'el Collins, or Scherff. Edited by atlGM
