    Which leads me to believe I'm correct.

    Saban plays a very conservative corner scheme.
    Humphrey can cover, and he's great at run support. And he was a return threat in high school. He just didn't do it in college.

    I doubt he's good enough at returns to play him as a primary returner if he's a first rounder.

    I really like where Dallas is picking at 28. They could end up with the best corner in the draft.

    Huh? The cowboys will be lucky to get 1 of the top 3, maybe 4. Unless you're implying that someone else is the top cb in the draft?

    What you don't understand that the top corner in the draft probably isn't the first taken?

    Nope, don't understand. Use your big boy words and say who you think is the top CB

    I think that there are several that have the potential to be great. Conley, Moreau, and Awuze are 3 that the Cowboys have a shot at.

    It does not always happen the consensus "best" corner really is. That is why the position is very much like WR, hard to evaluate due to systemic biases and translation to the NFL. Plus they are often flaky and it takes the right mental makeup to get it in the NFL.

    2015 - Trae Waynes, Kevin Johnson, Marcus Peters - we know who the best one was, Waynes has been close to bust level
    2014- Marcus Gilbert, Will Fuller, Darqueze Dennard - none of them really; best corner is Bradley Roby who was picked 31st
    2013 - Dee Milliner, D.J. Hayden, Desmond Trufant - Trufant, hands down, Xavier Rhodes was taken next and might be even better and Darius Slay went 36th
    2012 - Claiborne, Stephen Gilmore, Dre Kirkpatrick - Claiborne was a bust, fourth picked was Janoris Jenkins
    2011 - Patrick Peterson, Prince Amukamara, Jimmy Smith - Peterson obviously.

    I would be fine with drafting three CB's this draft quite frankly. Draft where the depth is.

    I'm trying to find info on a tall corner named Justin Gibbons 6-3,205 lbs from University of Aurora. They say he has track speed. Does anyone have any info on him. He looks raw in his highlights,but could be worth a look. One draft site has him running a 4.44 forty.
