In an insanely deep draft class for the CB position, there is a slew of top talents that could be had in the second and third round that would be legitimate first round prospects in other years.

Address the front 7. Get pressure on the QB and our Secondary instantaneously looks better. Address the CB position. Add very legitimate potential to it-but don't waste a 1st rounder on it. I could also list a handful of decent veteran CB's that should be available via Free Agency if you would like me to do that, also. Or, I could make mention of Hogan's potential. There are plenty of reasons that taking a CB in the first round is a wasted pick. Patrick Peterson went at 5 last year. We are currently sitting at 5. Is Morris Claiborne the prospect Peterson is? No.

Face it folks. We had our sexy pick last year. We aren't in line for another one this year. It's going to be a boring first round. Accept that. It's for the good of the franchise.

if you can't find anything better than 'boring' at the 5 spot, you need to start drafting better

The only way I see this happening is if we go Kalil in the first. But I can't see that working out.

I don't think drafting a DT/OLB where we would be drafting would have much value. I am not sure who'd be worth that pick at those positions. Devon Still? Not sold on him at our position.

Claiborne > PP7 when it comes to cornerback skills.

For starters I envision us picking higher than five(by higher I mean I Serbia winning a few
more games this year) Secondly, as I've said many times now, trading almost seems like a certainty at this point. With the depth of this class, and Hurneys infatuation with moving down, I just have a hard time seeing it not happening at this particular spot.

Many analysts aren't even sold that Claiborne is the best CB propsect in this class. To say he's better than PP is well...hype.

I think his ball skills are just as good too. PP is 6'3" 225 though.. ridiculous

Morris Claiborne seems like a hawk to me, but I honestly would be happy taking one in the 2nd round. Jenkins' stat lines are great and Hosley from Tech is a freak at times.

Unless we trade back in the first to get two first round picks, it's going to be tough hoping Jenkins falls to the 2nd. Him and Claiborne are really the only 2 I feel comfortable taking. Not saying the others won't amount to anything. But I have seen enough of Mo and Janoris that I feel confident saying they are great corners.
