    that there should be several good ones available in Rounds 2 and 3.

    I understand there is a lot of speculation we go CB in Round 1, but if Jenkins is expected to be ready to play by the beginning of the season - let's assume he misses TC and most/all of the pre-season - but if he's ready early on during the regular season . . . . we can still draft a CB in Round 2 or 3, plus draft another one Day 3 or get another vet during FA, we should be fine.

    If Jenkins is not extended next year for whatever reason, the draft pick we get in Round 2 or 3 (or Day 3 guy) should be ready to step in 2013.

    I'm not advocating absolutely not drafting a CB in Round 1, but I don't think we necessarily have to draft a CB Round 1.

    Since they don't need a starter in 2012, I really want a CB with the highest upside over a more ready now type. Although he is only 5'10-1/8", Josh Robinson is very solid at 200 lbs. He has elite athleticism and was a ballhawk in college.

    I like him also, add in from me Josh Norman Coastal Carolina lots of upside to this kid. Not sure Norman is second rd.

    I think we'll have Jenkins locked-in to a multi-year deal going into the season and a CB in 2 or 3 will be fine.

    I like him as well as a player. I wonder if he goes in Round 2?

    Don't think that is a problem as we won't draft a CB in the 1st 2 rounds I bet (unless we trade down and get an extra 2nd).
