    I don't think anyone is missing anything.........this is a 4th round CB we are talking about.

    That's fair. I glanced over most of the responses, none of which were upset or concerned about Rob Ryan's 'only looking at DBs' approach in response to a question about draft needs. Jumped to conclusions a bit and I apologize. But as far as DBs go, yes we need em ,but they're not the most important thing that will make our defense better.

    Here is an excellent youtube video of Leonard Johnson's battle with Justin Blackmon and Oklahoma St. I really hadn't paid much attention to Johnson throughout his career, so I can't offer any insight other than what I've read and what is available on youtube. He seemed to have a pretty good game against Blackmon, making plays and giving up a few. I wouldn't mind if we got this guy in round 3.

    Johnson had over 200 career tackles at the CB position. How is that not dependable? He doesn't shy away from contact.

    Newman was 6th on the team in total tackles this year, 226 total over the last 4 years, how do you like his tackling because Johnson mimics him.

    So he ducks and allows guys to jump over him?

    I actually hoped you envisioned that because the only person I saw on tape get hurdled more then Newman was Johnson.

    To be fair though, he (Johnson) did make his share of good tackles too.

    Yep.

    Minnifield, Hosley, Kirkpatrick are probably your top 3 tackling CBs this draft.

    Even if it's true, it means that the only defensive players they're likely to take in the first round are corners, and I don't think that would suprise anybody since we know how strong the class is. Unless some LB or DE really stands out he can scout for later round picks on film and such, and go by the other scouts.
