    The good, the bad and the ugly... The 2008 draft is expected to be rich at both CB and WR and that really showed this week in Mobile. The CBs as a group in particular really showed well led by Tracy Porter of Indiana, Troy's Leodis McKelvin, Chris Godfrey of Iowa and Patrick Lee of Auburn, all of whom played very well. The most intriguing CB in Mobile though may have been unheralded Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie of Tennessee, who actually worked out at FS most of the week, but displayed the athleticism and instincts to be a solid shut down corner, although like a number of other of the top corners, including Porter, he needs to do a better job of finding and reacting to the ball when its in the air. At the same time, though, second-tier prospects like Terrence Wheatley of Colorado, DeJuan Tribble of Boston College, Simeon Castille of Alabama and Chevis Jackson appeared to lack either the pure foot speed or instincts to figure among the top-tier CBs, but did show enough potential to get long looks in the middle rounds this coming April.

    He will be gone in round one. I wouldn't mind taking him at all, with either pick.

    Cromartie didn't work out at FS "most of the week." It was just for a bit.

    Any of them. Is this something you came up with or is it an actual term for drafting analysis?

    I think we're looking at two corners. One in the round 1 and after the 3rd round.

    Red Flags pertain to the prospects past behavior off of the field. It is a common term and thought process that front offices use to evaluate.

    This is one to consider...Mike Jenkins
