Still, if I had to pick between the 2, I think I'd go with Kirkpatrick. I like Barron, but the Cowboys need the cover guy more..
The problem with Kirkpatrick is many people aren't convinced he has the movement skills to play at corner. If this is true he is then a project to convert to safety and I don't want a project in the first round.
I'd really rather have Barron as I know he'll be a good starter. I'm not convinced he has much upside, though.
I'd take him if he were the next Brian Dawkins let alone Reed/Polamalu. He clearly isn't going to be an Earl Thomas or an Eric Berry. I'd like this selection a lot more if we traded back into the mid 20s for him.
It is kind of sad but I almost seem to like many of the players most of the mocks have coming off the board at the end of the first than the middle of the first. I do like Kuechly but we have 3 young ILBs on the roster already so he probably won't add much to our defense.
