    This is actually and or surprisingly a good year to get a CB. As much as I am disappointed with the mediocrity of the safeties I am impressed with the athleticism and the potential of the CBs. I will be the first to say there are a lot of roughness need for refinement, but even in mid to lower rounds there can be some decent guys to develop.

    Any thoughts on this?

    I obviously hope we don't go CB early, but late there are several guys I wouldn't mind having.

    Josh Johnson from Purdue is a player I really like for a Monte Kiffin defense. He's a little small but he's tough as nails and very strong for a corner. He's a special teams demon who would add to the teams toughness and he can come up and tackle exceptionally well... just like a Kiffin corner should.

    The good news in Round 1 is that there are several teams with a real need at CB that may be willing to take one before Dallas via trade-up or otherwise. The more taken early, the better, imo.

    I'm hoping a more than one WR and QB goes before pick 18 as well.

    There could also be some decent CBs and/or WRs still around in the later rounds. If real value is there, I'm not oppossed to Dallas taking one late.

    Hayden from Houston is probably the most intriguing guy. Tore an artery to his heart in a freak accident but has recovered and the scouts gush about him.

    Robert Alford - DB - Lions
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is hearing a "ton of buzz" around SE Louisiana CB Robert Alford.
    "Raw, sick athlete," Rapoport tweeted and went on to note that the corner has 8-10 visits scheduled and might be a first- or second-round selection. We've loved Alford's tools, specifically his closing speed, but the small school cover man's former defensive coordinator noted he is a "long way away mentally."
