Is there anyone better in America than Aaron Ross of Texas? He made a pick last night that made me get out of my chair, and I'm a Texas fan who's used to watching him play!

He has the potential to be a true shutdown corner. I guess the only question is if we'll be high enough in the draft to get him.

Sadly.... that question is being answered.

I like Marcus McCauley out of Fresno 6'1...4.3 40...also Leon Hall out of Michigan looks good

:tt02: I like what I saw of him last year in the National Tittle Game but he is not anywhere in Mel Kiper Jr.s top 25... I think that maybe these 2 guys mabe ahead of him though..
DB Leon Hall Michigan
DB LaRon Landry L.S.U.
DB Marcus McCauley Fresno St. which as 6'1" size to go along with 4.33 speed..

But here is the other question.

Do we really want to draft a CB... knowing that it will take AT LEAST 1 and more like 2 to three years for the CB to REALLy be ready to play against elite players?

Or do we trade a first round pick to pick up a CB... and is there anyone we would want to pick up?

I would let Champ Baley play on my team for a first round draft pick, but he's worth more than that.

To a point I agree with the preacher man on this, however, typically we don't draft first round talent at CB. Even when we have used a first round pick on a CB (Deon Figures *shudder*). I am thinking Leon Hall would be good. He has experience against guys like Ginn, Santanio, Samardzija, and a couple other guys. He didn't have too much help at UM but I would like to think with him, Ike, and Bryant, that we would have a solid core group of CB's, we need to do something, and turn this wekaness into a strength.
