Clements is solid, but he's slowly getting up there in age and he's slowing down as well - make no mistake about it, he's still our #1 corner. Spencer is good as well, but beyond them two, it's a steep drop off. We don't know how Harris is going to bounce back or if he's even going to be here next year. Brown is a poor tackler and is inconsistent. Bly is just suited to dime packages.
I'm all for drafting a CB to come in for Clements. We need depth badly, especially with all the passing the league is moving to. It is essential to have 3 good, solid corners because that 3rd corner is going to be on the field quite a bit.
Agreed. What makes people think Spiller will have any more success than Gore is having right now behind our offensive line? If we came away with the top corner and the top right tackle prospect in this draft that'd be awesome. Our two biggest problems are blocking and pass defending, and we will have address those issues in spades by selecting Hayden and Williams.
I don't know why the 9ers would select Dez Bryant. Sure it might look sexy on paper but what is the added value to the 9ers in making a selection like that? We've got a solid corp now with Crabtree, Davis, and Morgan. Going forward I believe that Morgan's success will continue as Crabtree gets better and starts drawing more attention from defenses.
The 9ers might also be a good fit for Reggie Bush, though it would depend on the price tag.
