    After some really intense back ground checks, the one that comes up the cleanest. But as for sheer talent probably Jenkins. The combine will give us more insight on Kirkpatrick.

    Neither. They are both boneheads. I think we can all agree that this team has enough boneheads and not enough smart football players. Or, maybe we like the fact that the team drafts boneheads so we have something to talk about?

    BP called this team stupid; hard to argue with that. Agree that drafting a dopehead is a dumb move.

    Dre no question. Jenkins is to small for us.

    This is exactly what I am trying to determine. IMO, one of these two WILL be our 1st round pick

    very doubtful that Jerruh will risk a 1st on a druggie; not with the mess with Hurd still lingering.

    I think we have had more problems with bigger WR's. Burress used to kill us, Nicks gives us problems. Remember the absolute field day the Kenny Britt had with us. Chargers murked us as well. Megatron single handedly beat us. Over the last season, when the aforementioned WR's had big catches on us. It was primarily on one db, Newman.

    Jenkins is the better CB overall and would be the better fit IMO. I think the Cowboys like Kirkpatrick better though because of his size and the way he tackles.

    Its tough. They are 2 completely different types of players. Jenkins has lock down corner potential. He may be hampered by his size, but that shouldnt stop him from having a very successful career. Dre on the other hand, may not be all that successful as a shutdown CB. However, I can see him making a pro bowl in 3-4 years once he converted to FS. Hes got everything you look for in a FS including the frame to add another 5-10 pounds to bulk up and play in the box when asked. Hes a very good tackler and you wouldnt have a problem leaving him 1 on 1 with the slot WR or TE's. Guess it just depends on what we are looking for.

    I don't see him being able to cover in the slot. From what i've scene he doesn't have fluid enough hips. Outside CB IMO.

    Maybe, maybe not. My point was that he would be 1 of the better cover safetys around given his CB background. You wouldnt feel uncomfortable if he had to cover the slot in a given situation like we have with all of our safetys in recent history.

    I see your point. But I really want a safety if I'm going to draft one. I'm tired of all of these experiments we've had going on at that position.

    I hear you, but we have been experimenting with junk. Kirkpatrick is a supreme talent. Far from the Alan Ball's of the world that we have been stuck with. Plus this is yet another weak safety class. Kirkpatrick would be like my 3rd or 4th choice at 14, but unfortunately it could come down to that depending on how the draft goes.
