CB's in next years Draft.

Isn't 6-3 a little big for a cornerback?

I am sure you are talking about Dre Kirkpatrick and there have been people projecting him as a safety. But then again he is pretty thin and could bulk up.

Hosley is the best of the bunch

Gilmore is great with the ball in his hands. Do not know how I feel about him as a corner, though. Everyone else likes him, so I guess I don't know what I'm talking about. Maybe I'm just too hard on him, as some are on Gamble. Would be nice to see a CB prospect really burst forth and get to us in the Draft, but as I've said, we have so much young talent there, I'll be disappointed if at least one or two of them don't pan out. Really looking forward to Hogan coming back.

I dunno if there is a corner right now I would want to take in the first.

Like Cliff Harris a lot. Kirkpatrick... I should like him; there's no real reason not to, but for some reason I just really don't.

I like Janoris Jenkins a lot but he is not a guy our FO would like based on his alcoholism and drug use.

I don't really like any DTs at the top of this draft yet.. not sure it will be a big position of need.. depending on how Fua and McClain do this year, but I could see it going either way.

I think WR has a big shot to be our top pick next year too.

Cliff Brings more to the table with his returning ability. I believe we need to address this as well. Getting an explosive return man like harris would be great for the special teams. I know this would probably make Armanti obsolete. We need a dynamic guy like that returning kicks. Hurney would be stubborn though. Which would put a crease in the idea of getting this guy.

Jayron Hosley is looking good. I just caught part of the Marshall vs VT game, The first play I'm paying attention to him, he forces a fumble and recovers it. The guy is a ball hawk and physical. I wouldn't mind him either.

    • Best suited for a rotational role
    • We just resigned Cody until 2020-21 and Frank will be on his rookie contract until 19-20. I think we don't need to worry about this at all. The biggest issue we have will be Kemba, but since Kemba and Dwight expire at the same time we will have plenty of money. That Howard trade really helped free up Miles 12m at the right time.  Now, as far as fit is concerned. Zeller just makes everybody look better. He will help out the second unit tremendously. I think he will be a great fit with Monk and Frank in that 2nd unit.  Teams go small, take out Dwight put Zeller in. Marvin not shooting well, but in Frank and team with Dwight or Zeller.  We now have options, something we didn't have last year. 
    • Depends on what the play calling looks like this year. I try to avoid judging individuals on the success of a group, unless it's the HC. If Shula's play calling looks like hot garbage like it has so far and Cam & co. are just making up for it like in 2015, then yes I'll continue to hate him. If the playbook (and situational playcalling) is indeed better then I'll be glad and start warming up to Shula.
