And the run on DB’s continues

Recommended Posts

I just posted this in another thread but this draft is showing us the evolution of the NFL.  DBs, mainly cornerbacks are a premium position.  For years it's been widely regarded that you need a strong defensive front 7 to consistently win but with offenses throwing as much as they do corners will be needed.  Every team now needs at least three starting corners

That’s 6 CBs right? I stopped counting. I knew at least 5 were going. We couldn’t wait for our biggest need. We have quality DL. We have a set of overall good LBs. We have hope at CB. Now we infuse some talent to secure the position. A veteran is likely still in the mix for the numbers. The bottom 2 guys are camp competitors.

Not really, wasn’t  my pick but if Oliver or Sheffield get injured you think anyone at pick 47 or later would be ready? I’ll accept a position of need and now seeing a run than taking a player we don’t need just because it’s a name you’ve read in mock drafts. We got plenty of picks to fill our other needs.

Once the haters recover from their juice box hangovers you are gonna be happy we didn’t settle for the 6-8th best CB at 47.

I think the issue is whether he is an impact player or not. Objectively, based upon stats/metrics we could have made a selection more in line with DL. But....we haven't dont that in a decade so why start now??

The players you wanted to select at 16 for DL are still on the board.

Instead we got the 6th-8th best CB at #16.  :barf::bang::argh:

One thing about TD is he can read a board. He did it last year with the run on offensive tackles.

Yeah, he may actually know what he is doing. 
 

Terrell is a great CB prospect. He was higher on many GMs boards than the analysts. Go figure.

I re watched the LSU game, and it wasnt nearly as bad as I thought. He didnt give up a single catch 2nd half and had like 4 PBUs going against Chase. But folks only remember the bad so thats cool too. We got a really good player

Bottom 2? We have six corners now so other than the new signee who do see as camp competitors?

I still hope we target Kindle Vildor later in the draft.

Same people complaining about CB being a priority would have been the same ones complaining when the 11th best CB makes it to the 47th pick

I was all on board for EITHER drafting Kinlaw, or a good CB if one was available. The best LB if all else failed.

All else failed. Kinlaw wasn't there because TD let John Lynch out-maneuver him. There wasn't a mid first-round worthy CB available. We had our pick of linebackers! So TD drafted--- a scrub loser who got roasted like a marshmallow at a girlscout camp-a-thon. I'm not angry--- FURIOUS--- that TD didn't draft Kinlaw. I am angry because he allowed himself to be out-maneuvered by a TV color analyst, then panicked and failed to draft any of a host of better players than Victory Road.
