The Way Things are Looking...

CB is the wild card here; how does Butler continue to play? What does Hogan look like? Do we plan on re-signing Captain Munnerlyn when his deal is up? In any event, I wouldn't be opposed to taking Claiborn, but he strikes me as more of a big-play DeAngelo Hall type corner and I'd much rather have a true cover corner. On top of that, I'm just not convinced CB is a big enough need in the 1st.
Our best bet would be if Riley Reiff somehow slips to our pick. He'd be a great pick in the 9-15 range, but there's no guarantee he'll be available. The good news is he's the 3rd rated OT right now behind Matt Kalil & Jonathan Martin, so unless 3 OT's go before we pick we could have a legit shot at him.
Of course, the wild card there is Jeff Otah - and Byron Bell. They could be reluctant to take a RT in the top-15 with a former 1st rounder still on the roster in Otah and a guy the coaching staff is clearly very high on in Bell.
Ugh. Why can't there be a can't-miss LB/DT projected to go 10-15?

Until we know that, it is hard to say. Also, Beason could kick out to OLB if the best value is a stud ILB

One guy I do like on defense is Luke Kuechly (LB). He's not a highlight reel type hitter but his positioning and awareness to misdirection plays is very legit
and for CBs: I would consider trading down in the first to get a Hosley (VT) if all the top receivers are gone by our pick. That kid is unreal
