Very surprised that fans aren't talking about this group. We are devastated at the Cornerback position. 

 

My CB Projection:

 

(1) Bradley Roby, OSU

I'm torn between Roby and Verrett, but giving the edge to Roby here due to his amazing instincts. Roby is a physical tackler and good in run support. He does come with off field issues.

(2) Jason Verrett, TCU
Similar to Roby, Verrett is physical, a solid tackler, and very good in run support. Verrett possess smooth hips and is a ball-hawker.

 

(3) Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Oregon

Ifo had a very good game vs. Marqise Lee last season. Doesnt have great speed, but has enough athleticism.

 

(4) Marcus Roberson, UF
Easily the best man to man cover corner at UF.

 

(5) Aaron Colvin, Oklahoma
Possess good size standing at 6'0". Nice man-coverage ability and solid open field tackler.
 

(6) Louchiez Purifoy, UF
Athletic, physical, and a tremendous ST player. NFL scouts will drool over his abilities and size. Coverage and tackling needs work though.
 

(7) Antone Exum, VT (injured)

Solid in coverage and plays the ball well by knocking it out of receivers' hands. Should go higher in the draft, but injury will probably drop his stock.

 

Notables: Darqueze Dennard, Justin Gilbert, Quandre Diggs, Kyle Fuller

Sleeper: Andre Hal

I like Ifo better than Verrett.  He can read a QB better than pretty much anyone in this class imo.  He doesn't quite have the physical ability as Roby but he is pretty quick.

 

We have gone D a lot but rivera is a defensive minded coach.  

 

I'd love to see us get Ifo in the first then if we can get a solid OL and WR in the 2nd and FA, turn around and grab another Corner who is going to drop due to depth.  Could be like a Star/KK at corner to go with the front 7 we got.

I would not mind it. I would actually like to go back to back CB if we have to like what we did with Star/KK (DTs) and ATL with Trufant/Alford. A guy like Marcus Roberson or Aaron Colvin could probably be there in the 2nd. Many would agree that Roberson is the better corner at UF than Purifoy. But, Purifoy may be taken ahead of Roberson just bc he's such an athletic specimen.

 

(1st) Ifo / Verrett
(2nd) Roberson / Colvin

(We'd be set at Defense for a long time.)

 

We can then go after an OT in Free Agency: Oher / Saffold.

Like I posted in your other thread.  I expect 1 of Fuller, Gilbert, or Diggs to fall to the 3rd due to the depth of this CB class.  Ifo most have him mocked and going around 15-20.

We wouldn't have to go back to back, grab an OL or WR in the 2nd and still grab a solid #2 corner in the 3rd.

 

Ifo and Diggs/Fuller/Gilbert with our front 7= best D in the NFL.

 

Another guy I like who could fall is Joyner.  At 5'8 he could fall all the way to our 3rd.  He has Good athletic ability.  Would not mind seeing grab him in the 4th (could be our Bob Sanders) even if we grab 2 corners top 3 rounds especially if we can grab a WR like Nicks in FA and a solid OL in the 2nd.

Exum is also a guy that I really like. If his knee checks out, he'd be worthy of a 3rd round pick. I actually feel that he should be a late 1st or early 2nd if didnt tear his acl.

 

I know I'm throwing a lot of scenarios out there, but we could even go FA for a veteran CB. It's a pretty good group: Shields, Browner, Grimes, DRC, Talib, Vontae Davis, etc.

 

Chances may be low at getting one of those guys, but I think "Alterraun Verner" could be a possibility. Verner is a very underrated corner in the league who have managed to put of very good productions for the Titans the last couple of years. Verner is already on a fast track grabbing two INTs this season. The Titans will probably not try to retain him. Eventhough he's basically their best corner, he is a suspect fit in the Titans' new press man scheme and they also drafted two corners in this past draft. He would be a huge upgrade at corner for us.

What about Ifo's teammate Terrance "The Island" Mitchell? He's 6'0, very physical and a great open field tackler. He recently got ejected for targeting though.

I like Dennard. Physical, nasty player. Old-school. Like Fuller after him.
