Is It Just Me?

Everyone who keeps stating CB is our biggest need...I don't get it.

1.Rivera finally brought over the DB coach he wanted.
2. Creating a better pass rush will GREATLY better our pass defense

and most importantly.....

Why spend a second round pick on a CB, when we have a 2nd round guy who is just waiting to show us what he can do and has already had a year to learn our defense??

Without his injury, Brandon Hogan would have likely gone in the second round. The kid has talent.

Taking a CB in the first would be a mistake as Claiborne will not fall to us and anything else would be a reach, especially with the lack of a pass rush we currently have. Jenkins won't fall to the 40th pick. I'm sorry, but media is overhyping his situation. No one cares he has a ton of kids or smokes pot. hell, look at the Detroit Lions. He may be the second best corner in the draft and will be gone late first round tops. So who out there would be that big of an IMMEDIATE upgrade over Hogan in round two?

My wish...

Round 1- Fletcher Cox or Quentin Coples- Best Pass rusher Available.
Round 2- Best Pass rusher still on board at the D-line position not addressed in round 1.(Vinny Curry or Jerel Worthy, etc.
Round 4-Joe Adams (The final piece to our Special Team problems and perhaps a Steve Smith 2.0?)
Round 5- Anger or Drew Butler- The two best punters on the board.
Round 6,6,7- LB and OL projects

I dont think Hogan can be a lock down no. 1 corner.

Jenkins, Dre, and Gilmore could potential be that.

Which we could trade back and get one of those guys without reaching.

If not, I like the idea of getting Cox and Curry / Perry / Jones. Thats one hell of a DL pass rush haul!

Only downside is not getting a good CB or LB.

But if we could some how get a 3rd then we could come away with a good LB.

I think we should draft all D linemen and run the famed 11-0.
