    He gets knocked for size. But his dad was small too. Im not saying JR. will he as good as his dad, but he is a much better athlete and has alot of the same instincts his dad had. Length has become so coveted in CB's, that guys under 6' get knocked harder than they should

    1A: Surtain
    1B: Horn

    That’s it at 10.

    See I feel the exact opposite of the two. I think Horn has the better potential. But an argument could be made both ways. I would be happy to land either one.

    All three grade out higher than Diggs did last year but they will all probably be picked higher too.

    I'd take Horn over Surtain. 4.39 is nothing to sneeze about and that is what the Cowboys need in their backfield.

    I love Surtain but I also want a reason to love Horne too. Like I said before Horne game against Auburn was some of the best cornerback play I have ever seen but then it hit me that Bo Nix is not a good quarterback. Horne draftnicks say they love the “Dog” mentality that he has because he covered Pitts. You know who was a “Dog” for the Cowboys back in the day Jenkins from South Florida and look how that turned out.

    Surtain is a no brainer. He's plug and play.

    Sorry for hijacking the thread ....but I’m taking Parsons at 10 and the CB in the 2nd... instant upgrade.

    I'm inclined to think Surtain offers us the best combination of both run and passing coverage to award the most success. ;)
    In the event he's gone before our turn arrives, let's hope that we'd select the best alternative, whomever that would be! :grin:

    Yep, feel you plug him in and don't have to worry about the position for the next 8 years. I think those hesistant think about Surtain Sr. He was a very good NFL corner making 3 pro bowls and 37 Ints during his career, but wasn't a hall of fame career. If that is Surtain Jr. floor sign me up.

    I really want to take Horn but missing at 10 can be a catastrophe. Surtain’s bust rate is much lower than Horn so that’s they way I go

    Don’t write off Chuckles talking Booger into not drafting a DB, and just resigning Nolan Carroll.

    You may be the first person to say ever that Horn is better fundamentally than Surtain. Surtain's technique is second to none in this draft.

    His dad was a great player in Jimmy Johnson's Dolphin defense. But, you have maintain that for at least 5-6+ years to become HOF material. But equally important, look at Alabama's WR core the past 3 seasons. Those are the guys Surtain goes up against every day in practice. Bama has had an NFL caliber WR core for many years. After this draft, it will be FIVE 1st round WRs in the past 3 drafts. Surtain won't see anything in the NFL he didn't see every day at Alabama.

    Just so we play fair,, Im taking Deommodore Lenoir, CB, Oregon.
    Currently ranked as a 6 round prospect, just so that we give the rest of the league a fair chance in the draft.
    On a serious note, if pressed into the OPs situational format,, considering that Quinn obviously has established a buyers card status
    with this FO, then its obviously Surtain vs Horn, and we are cracking walnuts here, its too close to call.
    If you follow Quinns DB history, height isnt a prerequisite to play in his secondary, he values and covets speed/agility much more with his DBs.
    If Im sitting in a Starbucks with Quinn and we are discussing this subject mano e mano, Horn would actually be Quinns choice if both were available,
    but even if Jerry gets his way with Surtain,, than its not a big deal,, pun intended.
    We are cracking walnuts here.

    Surtain. He is smooth and fundamentally strong While I like Horn I feel he is too grabby and will get flagged like crazy in the NFL. It worried me a lot.
