Man Strength

1st round CB

53 posts in this topic

Let's assume for a minute that the value at OT and WR aren't there in the first. In that scenario the next most likely position should be CB. Assuming that is the case, who would you want?

I really like Fuller. He fits our scheme perfectly, is big and talented and is likely to be available around our pick.

What say you?

As a Tech fan I love Fuller but I would be shocked if he makes it past the Chargers at 25.

Fuller

Dennard

Gilbert

Verrett

These four are the only CBs worth taking in the first round. Guys like Purifoy, Gaines, J. Watkins, Exum, Desir, etc are 2nd-3rd rounders.

I love Fuller, but want him in the second. The only first round CBs in my opinion are Dennard and Gilbert. Among WRs, OTs and TEs I would want in the first there are about 14 or so players, and I don't believe all 14 will be gone when we pick.

Brad Roby has been tagged in the 1st round in quite a few mock drafts. Fuller will be long gone before our 2nd round pick.

No way Fuller goes in the second. He has 4.4 speed, great tackling technique, above average football IQ and instincts, fluid hips, solid footwork and is quite the firecracker in regards to physicality.

Someone will definitely take him in the first.

Do not want. Roby is the athletic version of Norman with baggage.

I have no problem taking a cb or safety in the first or second if Getty thinks

they are the BPA.

 

first round pick has to be a starter, and a good one, regardless of position.

Got a good feeling that at the back of the draft, we'll get a very good

choice of DBs.

    • I was very intrigued by him early on. The tape (highlights) look good, and at that size still seemed to have pull away speed. Then I looked into him more, and he has some very bad fumbling issues. If I am remembering right it is like once in every 34 carries on average.  Near the bottom in the entire RB draft class.
    • Honestly I claim no expertise regarding the draft and haven't gone to the trouble of creating a board or ranking players. But I think that guys in the top 50 are often from bigger schools and get more hype than other guys.  Plus there may be guys taken at some positions much sooner or later than previous years. In the past 2 drafts, no tight ends were drafted in the first round. And the last time 4 TEs were picked in the top 3 rounds was a decade ago. This year we could see 2 tight ends taken in the first round alone and another 2 or 3 in the second round.  On the other hand there is often a run of OTs taken in the first and this might be the first draft in a while where no OTs are taken in the top 20. We could get one of the top 10 tackles at 98 or 115 where other years they would be chosen much higher. Is that because they all suck or is it that there are more attractive guys at other positions?  You make a good point about trading up. Is it better to have 2 picks at 40 and 64 instead of one at 24. I think it depends on how we see our current projected starters.  If we think we have several holes to fill and these guys are going to be impact players than don't trade up. If you think that the guy at 64 would be a rotational guy but who we want at 24 is going to be a starter and really impact the team, you trade up. It depends on what we think we need and how the draft pans out.
