Isn\'t this pretty much what all the scouts say about all CB prospects?
DR will be an all-pro CB for many years. Maybe not his 1st few, but he will be there eventually.
We can afford to wait till 2005 for him to fully develop. He\'ll get major PT his 1st year.

funny thing is when LSU played SC, i never heard Robinson\'s name. As a devout Tiger fan (much more than the Saints), I find it peculiar that he wasn\'t heard of all game. I just don\'t like the idea of drafting someone based on the fact that they had a great weekend at the combines or personal workout session. granted, he\'s talented, and really fast, but that and 50 cents can get you a cup of coffee. that\'s saying a lot considering the Saints secondary is so porous that I could probably put 250 yds through the air on them, and I haven\'t thrown a football since high school.

That\'s a good thing when you\'re talking about CBs.

When you don\'t hear they\'re name very much, it means that the QB is throwing away from their side. If I remember correctly, the LSU recievers were shut down that game (I think Henderson and Clayton combined for 60 yards?). Dunta definitely helped himself with his impressive workout numbers, but he does have college production to back those numbers up.

You never want to hear your corner\'s name being called unless he makes an int. If you dont hear his name, he is doing his job.

i guess what i was really trying to imply is that all this hype is over the guy doing good for a weekend. granted he was OK at SC, but that\'s all... OK. I don\'t get why all the scouts rave about the guy, being all the times i\'ve ever watched SEC football (that\'s a lot of times), i never heard about this guy being a \"blanket\" type of defender.

most good CB\'s are known pretty well, but this guy wasn\'t the prospect he is now until now. i just don\'t like the fact that if the draft happened half way through the college football season, this guy is likely to have been no more than a 2nd rd. pick, but because he can run a 4.34 or so forty, everyone is falling all over themselves.

If the draft took place halfway through the college season, Strait would be the top CB taken. I\'m not really sure what my point is with that, other than I guess the importance of the combine and pro days.

I listened to the LSU/SC game on the radio and before the game, during the breakdown segment, I believe it was Mike D. who said SC had a legit first round corner who could give the LSU receivers some fits. That was the first i had ever heard of him but he didnt come from nowhere, the guy made a name for himself in the SEC.
