    Anybody?

    Clearly we have to add depth at this position..as of right now if anybody gets hurt, we have nobody that can fill in..

    Specifically speaking, we need a nickel CB..neither Carr nor Jenkins can play inside. Thus, if Scandy goes down, we are completely screwed. Whereas, if Carr or Jenkins goes down, we do know Scandy can play outside.

    Brandon Boykin at 45

    Who are some other CBs who can play inside in this draft?

    2nd round pick on a 4th CB? Seems a bit early if you ask me. I'd rather sign a vet cut by another team then use a pick that high on a 4th CB.

    The roster move that irritated me the most last year was the release of Josh Thomas. If Alan Ball and Frank Walker are your 4th and 5th CBs, then you have no chance to develop a player with high upside.

    Playing inside CB is about lateral agility and explosion out of the backpedal, IMO.

    In the draft I think Josh Robinson can play inside or outside. He has excellent agility being 1st in the Cone drill and 3rd in the SS at the combine. He is also explosive with a 4.33 forty and a 38.5" vertical. He has good, not great size at 5'10-1/4", 199 pounds.

    Do we have a 3rd OT? A 3rd OG? A 3rd QB? A 2nd TE? A 2nd NT? A 4th OLB? A 3rd S?

    Do you want to compare the # of snaps our 4th Cb saw last year vs these positions?

    I didn't think so

    Listen Gabe, we know you don't like CBs.. We get it

    We still have Mario Butler on the roster, who I thought had a better pre-season than Josh Thomas last year. Athletically, he is a bit challenged though.

    Well there you're talking about injury.

    But I'd bet that 2nd TE would see the field more than a 4th corner would without an injury. Probably the backup NT too.

    But hey, continue to be fixated on positions that don't matter.

    I'm not even talking about injury

    Rob Ryan LOVES rotating his CBs..even when everyone was healthy walker and ball were getting snaps

    We need a 4th cb.. There's no doubt about it

    I think we definitely have to take a cb in the 1st 4 rounds given Jenkins contract situation. I like Boykin, Hosely, Minnifield, or Norman in the 3rd round.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the club drafted 2 corners... Probably like 4th & 6th rounds.

    Good question.

    3rd OT - Parnell. I like this player.

    3rd OG - They have multiple 3rd OGs, the question is 1st and 2nd OG.

    2nd TE - They will probably draft one. Phillips is a good backup to Witten, but not really a replacement for MartyB as a blocker.
    With all of the athletic OLinemen on the team, it seems that one should be able to function as the blocking TE.

    2nd NT - Lissemore and Brent.

    4th OLB - Highly likely that they draft one. Also, Alex Albright is underrated, IMO.

    3rd S - Maybe Church. Mana Silva has the athletic ability and had 14 interceptions in college. Justin Taplin-Ross appears to have the size and athletic ability.

    Butler is longshot at CB due to limited athleticism.

    His measureables are suspect even as a Safety. For reference here are his measureables compared to Gerald Sensabaugh:

    Bulter
    Height: 6001
    Weight: 182
    40 Yrd Dash: 4.65
    Vertical Jump: 30 1/2
    Broad Jump: 10'00"
    20 Yrd Shuttle: 4.37
    3-Cone Drill: 7.09

    Sensabaugh
    Height: 6004
    Weight: 214
    40 Yrd Dash: 4.44
    Vertical Jump: 46
    Broad Jump: 11'01"
    20 Yrd Shuttle: 3.98
    3-Cone Drill: 6.80

    Butler has been hangin around for a couple years now.

    I don't see him being worthy of the final roster.

    The team needs a couple more corners.

    Then use the later rounds or UDFA for such a bit player. You can even find a guy after cuts.

    I'm totally against it unless that just is the clear cut value.

    i mean this team has so many holes, its damn near impossible to argue against any direction they go in..

    i think we need a CB for sure..doesnt necessarily have to be a 1st or 2nd rd pick

    We have Carr, Jenkins and Scandrick.

    At TE our top backup is a guy coming off a major knee injury who clearly wasn't back 100% last year. At T our top backup is an undrafted nobody. At G we got 4th and 7th round question marks backing up two mediocre starters. We've got great depth at C because our starter sucks so there's no dropoff.

    I'm hoping to move Ratliff to end. That would leave Brent as the only NT. We don't have an OLB backup this team trusts on run downs. Our backup safeties are career special teams players.

    You won't see me complain about it if it's great value.

    Like say somehow Jenkins slides to the 2nd round because of the baggage.
