Just say NO! to drafting a CB in the 1st.

This is why I was against drafting anyone in the top slot last season. We need depth and help at a lot of positions. I was all for trading down last year and that remains the same this year.
For a team that needs so much help, we have no third rounder.
Turning two picks into three would be a great move for the first two rounds

It's always easy to say we need to trade down, but it's rarely that easy.
Yeah, I think that would be a smart move on our part especially if we miss out on Kalil and Mo. But it's not always easy.
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.
Woah, didn't see this post. I have no idea what these "analysts" are saying but from I have seen, Claiborne is a better CB than Peterson. He possesses better pure coverage skills. Isn't that the number one thing you have to look for when looking at a CB? Peterson is just a better athlete.
Mo is also a ball hawk.

Much film will be viewed and more info forthcoming. The "experts" will have no games to watch so it is film and evaluation time. We will start hearing much more by mid Dec.

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.
the difference between Peterson and Claiborne is that people were mostly hyping Peterson last year because of his measurables instead of actual corner play
