He could be a top notch CB (though I doubt it).  Even if he is, it ain't gonna make a damn bit of difference when the opposing offense gets to start on the 50 yard line every possession because we can't move the ball.   It doesn't help the team get better at a more important position of need. Total waste to draft a CB this high when there are more foundational needs on this team.  

again, based on what? sounds more like butthurt than anything legitimate.

it's only the first round. this is purported to be a deep OL draft. there's several very good OL selections left. if we pick OL in 2 and 3 will you stop whining?

Our last super bowl team featured Cortland Finnegan and Robert McClain at DB, along with Norman. 

In 2003, our CBs were Terry Cousin and Reggie Howard. 

The common denominator in those years was that we had a dominant front 7.  You can hide a crappy secondary all day if you can pressure the QB.  Building a team from the outside in is a recipe for failure. Literally, you can patch together a competent secondary by picking up guys from trash heap after the last round of training camp cuts.

did you think that every time last year when it was 3rd and 13, and we gave up a 15yd pass? getting off the field on 3rd down is a rather important factor to allowing your offense to get back on.

Josh Norman was a dominant shutdown corner our super bowl year.... your argument is half right meaning its all wrong.

Norman and peanut for most of the season. Norman was an all pro. We had two top shelf corners on that super bowl team

Actually we beefed up our secondary to defend against Mike Evans, Michael Turner, Chris Godwin, Calvin Ridley, Julio Jones (if he isn’t traded) and now Kyle Pitts. Rhule said our biggest problem was not getting off the field on 3rd downs. Hopefully Horn gives us a fighting chance back there.

You got to be able to a score with those teams too though.  

We had Bradberry.  And he held it down vs those guys as good as anyone could.   

I think the focus should be on the QB and the lines.  Not the DBs and WRs.

Where someone is picked and who is available at the time....has a lot to do with how I critique the selection.  

our roster is Sam Darnold, Grier and PJ...and was passed up Fields for Horn.  

 

Sooo...because you are mad at our QB room, you are mad at the JC pick. Makes perfect sense.

 

Rhule likes Sam, if that works our we are good. If not, we go at it again. We have coaches that can teach. Why not wait until the product is actually on the field before you write it off?

Tillman was 100 years old that season. Way past his prime.

Perfectly ok with the pick, Jaycee is a dog with that competitive drive that you search for in a player!  

Not to mention the NFL bloodlines. He’s been groomed for this moment. Now he needs to build on his potential and I don’t think we would’ve taken him that high if we didn’t think he could.
