CB's in next years Draft.

Getting kicked out of the game early surely didn't help his draft stock with all his priors. Wonder if he will slip to round 2.

doubt that hurts his stock, i think he will go in the 2nd anyways.

Dude is first round talent. The thing that might drop him to the second is his off the field issues.

True, but I believe we're fine at Slot nickel package, Munnerlyn and Burney would be our go to guys.

I'm not giving up on gamble, but we need a blue chip CB next to Gamble, also Gamble is getting older, he'll need replacing soon.

Do you think we'll resign Burney?

Seeing he was let go, I doubt it. I would take a chance on him though. But if he was let go, I doubt the FO would do it.

ESPN Insider is real high on Morris Claiborne from LSU right now. Has him as the top CB, I think he was #11 or so overall prospect. Cliff Harris wasn't in the top 25, but from what little I've watched on any college prospects, Harris is my favorite CB so far.

I hope you're right, getting Harris in the 2nd round would be a steal.

Morris Clayborne 89 yard INT. He almost scored, he should have but was a bit over zealous. Hahah. Could be better than Patrick Peterson?

I watched the "NFL Draft Analysis - 2010 Season" and other highlights videos on youtube on everyone mentioned in this thread so far and I really think the best value we could get (judging by what we've seen so far) would be to pick BPA from WR or DT (probably WR) in the 1st and pick a CB in the 2nd. CB is super deep in this draft. Would could probably get Blackmon or Jeffrey in the 1st (or that Thompson guy from Clemson if he looks to be legitimate by then) and then get Cliff Harris or Minnifield or Gilmore (in that order of preference) in the 2nd. I'm assuming Kirkpatrick gets overdrafted because of his measurables and he and Jenkins get picked in the 1st. I'd say Harris also has a good chance of going in the 1st, but if not I'd love to draft him.

Minnifield has good size, looks like he has pretty good instincts (he was sniffing out those screen passes and breaking down on them very well). He'd be a good choice in the 2nd.

Gilmore has really good size and looks like he has a bit of a nasty streak. Good at tackling low, but needs to wrap up more than just hitting low with his shoulder pads.

I think either of those guys would be very good picks in the 2nd if Kirkpatrick, Jenkins and Harris go in the 1st. Rhodes looked solid too, but I'd take Minnifield or Gilmore before him. I think the drop off in CB to the 2nd round should be much less severe than other positions. We could probably get a much better CB in the 2nd than WR or DT.

DT just doesn't look like a good class this year, so far. I think we should probably address that in FA. Go hard at the top DT in FA this year and not even look at other positions until we've gotten the best DT we can. Go WR in the 1st, CB in the 2nd, fill out o-line and just get BPA after the 2nd.

I'm also assuming Claiborne goes in the 1st, he'd be a good choice if he fell to the 2nd too.
