With Bowers on the board Im a bit disgusted by this but I guess Colbert knows best, as he usually does.

Still hate Ohio State trash though

The reason we got him so quick is because the Packers were probably eyeing Heyward with their 32....I'm just happy we got him there otherwise the Packers would of had him...

CB.......................................CB....... ..............................CB


Perhaps we need a replay of SB 45?

yeah, when was the last time we had a pure bust of a 1st round pick?

Right now our biggest bust in recent memory would be Holmes, if only because he's no longer on the team, but that's not for lack of talent or production (Superbowl MVP)

CB is very deep this year....we can get Dowling in the 2nd round if we trade up...or hopefully he falls to us....or we can get williams teammate Brown...I think Brown would be a better pro than Williams....seriously....why would we draft a nickle CB that would have to play S in the future(Williams)....I say we go Dowling in the 2nd...he should be our number 1 priority....I wouldn't mind Curtis Brown and Curtis Marsh in the 3rd/4th...

cb's you can find later on in the draft, we don't play a tampa 2 so it's not particularly an area of great need, nor could we ever really fill drafting in the latter part of most drafts. I don't think williams would of been the answer at CB, certainly not next season. Makes sense, draft another DE with a huge motor like ziggy, and let them open up the holes for our LB's to hit the QB. Just needed a little more pressure in the SB, and CB's don't apply pressure...LB's and DE's do. It's really that simple. Pressure is better than any cover CB imo, makes any QB inaccurate, rattles em, makes them unsure of themselves, causes INT's...etc

All that being said, I was a little bummed they didn't go after the guy the giants landed...but now they still have all their picks and could find some gems hopefully along the O and D line with a couple project CB's in the mix. Wouldn't be surprised by the obligatory WR pick in the 4th or 5th.

but are we really in the position for project corners i mean remember ike maybe gone this year leaving gay mcfadden and butler. and we still have holes on the Oline that need to be addressed. if we dont find some answer to the secondary your going to be watching last years superbowl every game against us. but that is just my opinion

, I totally agree with you....LB's and DL put the pressure on QB which if we do that with our guys...we don't need the most elite type CB...so there are a lot of guys later in the rounds that we can pick up but I would love them to pick up Ras I Dowling or Curtis Brown in the 2nd.... or maybe even Curtis Marsh in the 3rd/4th....I just think we might go OLB in the 2nd again...maybe even Sam Acho........I hope we go CB in the 2nd....

What would youguys think if we take WR G. Little in the 2nd if he falls to us???

A bit surprised they passed on Sherrod, but they probably felt he wasn't "nasty" enough to play on our line. Love the pick though. Glad it wasn't Williams.
