I want either a stud DE that we can pair with Justin Smith or an OLB that can pressure QBs.
Our DBs would look good if there was havoc in the backfield more often.
By this logic, Prince should be below Quinn, Miller, and Darius on boards. So far, no one has made an argument for why we should draft Prince over these guys. I know there are many of you out there.
I'm starting to buy into that logic.... The Niners defense would be upgraded tremendously if they had a stud pass rusher....and they can still get a fine CB prospect in the second round. By then, the stud pass rushers will probably be gone.
Stud pass rushers do not grow on trees. Both Indy (Dwight Freeney) and Dallas (DeMarcus Ware) were criticized at the time for drafting these guys too high....but both teams knew how important stud pass rushers are...so they pulled the trigger...and both teams were right to do so...
its very rare for shutdown corners to be found outside the first round hpwever u can find a lot of elite pass rushers especially OLB outside first round
I think Peterson has a chance to a be a shutdown corner (Pro-Bowl does not equal "shutdown") but every other corner in the draft can be good, but not shutdown.
Therefore, I would rather go with one of the disruptive elite front seven players available. Our corners are not the problem, nor the solution.
Let's shut plays down before they even have a chance, much like Green Bay and Pittsburgh do.
