Pass rush better get to the QB in 2.5 seconds or so...
Maybe we are planning to spend some money in FA on CB's. It seems that way.
It's not that they were reaches, its that they weren't as good of players as Heywerd. Colbert said that there were 20 "special" players in this draft and Heywerd was one of them. Neither Dowling, nor Williams were. We got a dominant DE, instead of a pretty good CB. I'm comfortable with that. "Pretty good" isn't what we need in the secondary. We already have some "pretty good" players.
