If We Get A Corner...

Is it just me or is this a very lackluster group of CBs? I mean when I look at the top rated guys none of them really stand out. My question to ya'll is this, do you see any of the top corners in this year's draft becoming a pro bowl lock down CB? When I say the top corners I'm talking about M. Jenkins, DRC, A. Talib, and L. McKelvin. Who is the best of this bunch and who would you most like to see in black and gold?

I think it is a very deep draft of corners.. however only one really stands out to me and just feels right.. that is DRC. I actually LOVE the fact he comes from a small school.. unlike most that bash him for it.

Re: If We Get A Corner...

Now thats a hard pick for this years draft. To be honest with you not one of these guys deserve to be in the top 15. Look at last years draft and not one of them would have challenged for the #2 spot in the CB rankings. #3 yes but top 2? no. Lets face facts this class is basically weak in round 1. From round 2 on I like this class alot. The true postion of strength is OT. Thats why I agree with Boba that CB may not be the saints pick at 10. If I had to pick just one I am going with Carson from Arizona. He was the #3 CB in last year draft but went back to school. He is a in your face jamming style CB. The best in the draft at this art form. That is the key to playing out on the island. you can not let the WR get a jump into thier route. What hurts him is the 4.45 speed.

Re: If We Get A Corner...

Kansas CB Aqib Talib ran a 4.48 forty at his Pro Day on Tuesday.

It's a smidge slower than his 4.44 from the Combine, not that it matters much. Talib is in good position to be a first-round pick in April. The underclassman has shown better than expected athleticism this offseason.

I really like Talib Biloxi and I think he's is the biggest CB in the draft which is a big plus. He could start next week but will take a couple of years to develope to his full potential. The Saints may take McElvin or Jenkins depending on who the Patriots take and who they have highest on the draft board that day.

Re: If We Get A Corner...

I'm fine with either McKelvin or Jenkins at 10... and I think they're both legitimate top 15 picks. I like DRC a lot also, just not at 10... but the only reason why is because of the competition he faced. He's the better cover corner out of the three imo.

I'd love to see Talib as a FS. He may not have the prime speed at CB, but this guy is always around the ball!

Re: If We Get A Corner...

There is so much hype right now about DRC and I understand why but I have some doubts. What's the story on this guy? He's a great athlete but why was he at a small school? Grades? Troubled youth? Headcase? I mean how many people can say with a straight face that this guy is the real deal when almost nobody had heard of him before the senior bowl? When it comes to coreners I have bought into the hype too many times to get fooled again. Here are a few CBs that some of us Saints fans were begging for in years past, Ahmad Carroll, Tye Hill, Andre Woolfolk, Phillip Buchanon, Mike Rumph. Remember these guys? Looking back, maybe the FO knew more than we thought they did. I just think that if a CB is to be selected in the top 10 he should be head and shoulders above a CB taken in the 20s. None of these CBs seem like that guy to me.
