34 5 Aaron Williams CB Texas 6-1 195 1-2 same 4.49
35 1 Mike Pouncey OG Florida 6-4 310 1-2 same 5.29

Not being a draft guru I have no idea if these two CB are worth a number 1 pick however I do find it interesting that there are two CBs rated close to where we pick. Also note that Mike Pouncey is listed at 35.

At this point I would take a CB but I would not be surprised if we took a LB or a tall WR. (The last two options are a joke I hope.)
Jimmy Smith would be great at 31, he's a cornerback that looks like he would fit our system well and he is moving up draft boards fast.

Pouncey, enough has been said for.

Aaron Williams, Im not sure, if he were all thats left I might consider trading back. He's good, but then again he may also be there later in the second and he wouldn't be all that much better than the other cb's ranked below him. IMO the CBs drop off after Peterson, Prince, Harris, and Smith.
