View Full Version : CB in the second

If we were to take a CB in the second would you take Justin Miller, a speedster and ST player who just happens to be projected as a 1-2 rd draft choice out of Clemson, Brandon Browner, a monster of a CB with speed but questionable technique out of Oregon, or name another pet CB you have in mind?

I doubt seriously that Justin Miller will be there in the second round. I had several oppurtunities to see Miller last year and I believe hes as talented as any corner in the draft, hes a playmaker with blazing speed and great size. If Miller is still around at pick 42 then hopefully hell be wearing a star on his helmet by next year.

My dark horse CB candidate is that skinny little cover corner with the blazing feet from Howard. His name is Ronald Bartell. He could be anywhere from late 2nd to early 4th. If he makes it to middle to late third I would like to see Dallas package a move up to get him. He is a somewhat smaller version of Pete Hunter.

I'd probably avoid drafting a corner unless we get one of the top guys in the first round. If we sign a big-name free agent, as is rumored, then we'd have Newman, the FA, Hunter, Frazier, Thornton, Reeves, Nate Jones and Lenny Williams. That would be a pretty good group, considering that Hunter and Frazier would be coming off the bench and the others would just be fighting for a roster spot. If we somehow could get Antrel Rolle or something, I'd take him and worry about what to do with him later. But I don't see why we'd draft one in the second round, considering our other needs.

I am not at all in favor of us drafting a CB on day 1. That hole needs filled by a FA. That would give us a good group of CB's to work with for the near future. Lets fix the front 7.

I'm more concerned about his reportedly bad technique which is his trademark with every scouting report I've read on him.

I'm more concerned about his reportedly bad technique which is his trademark with every scouting report I've read on him.his technique cant be that bad for a first round projection. When Oregon State cornerback Brandon Browner walked into the interview room, he opened a lot of eyes. "He's a corner?" a writer asked. The question was prompted by his size. Browner measured out at 6-feet-3¾ and weighed 221 pounds. Browner then said he was the best corner in the draft. "The other guys don't have what I have," he said. They certainly don't have the size. But the key for Browner will be his 40 time. He said he has run under 4.5 in the past. If he does that, he's going to vault high into the first round. One thing that he will have to adjust in the NFL is his physical play. He mugged receivers in the Pac-10. Browner said that can be fixed with some technique work. We love this kid as a player. So will the team that gets him. 29.
Brandon Browner CB Oregon State
Brandon Browner might not just be another Lenny Walls, a tall cornerback. Even though Browner is a full 6 foot 3, he has good ball skills and great recovery speed, making him a very intriguing prospect. On the other hand, the Colts were outstanding on the offensive side of the ball, and they hoped to say the same about their defense, but that didn't happen. They are in the NFC South which is an upcoming passing conference with David Carr, Byron Leftwich and Billy Volek, all potential gun slingers, so the Colts could use the depth and the potential here. ..........and this fom kiper Cornerback... The deepest position at the 2005 draft looks like it could be at CB. There is a strong core group of seniors at the position including Antrel Rolle of Miami. Marlin Jackson of Michigan, Carlos Rogers of Auburn and LSU's Corey Webster, augmented by several top underclassmen including juniors Adam Jones of West Virginia and Clemson's Justin Miller and rangy Oregon State sophomore Brandon Browner. None of the four seniors, though, is a blazer, indeed, none is expected to run much under 4.5 in the 40, if at all. That could open the door for the abrasive Jones or the athletic 6-4 Browner to claim the top grade among the CBs, and possibly a spot in the top 10, if they can post some solid times this off-season..

Well, I'm not really in favor of drafting a corner in the second either, but if we don't land a full fledged starter in FA then we still need depth there. A lot of other factors would depend on us drafting a corner in the second also. Like who is there, can we sign him assuming we like him better than another position, who else is there when we pick as in OL, DE, DL, LB, even S.
A lot of our draft strategy is going to depend on who we cut and who we can pick up in FA as well as how the coaches feel about a few of the younger guys already on the roster who they think may step up and play a certain role next year.
Even then are you gonna pass on someone like Miller or Browner who may be very high on your board to pick a "need" player a good bit farther down the line?
I'd love for us to pick up one good FA corner and fill the rest of the roster from within. That way we can fill other holes via FA and the draft without spending a high pick on a CB. It just may not work out that way and IF I had a vote on draft day I would not want to go into next year with just Newman and even one solid starter on the other side. There are a lot of question marks with the guys on the roster now esp Hunter. And I actually like Hunter and Frazier and think one of the other corners will step up as well.
I'm not saying those other guys can't and won't make it but it's a risky bet to count on them. Look at this last year esp with the injuries.
Just some random thoughts.
