If you look at the teams that went pass heavy on us, you'd see they win the TOP. Brown is very suspect in man-coverage, its when he knows he has Safety help he shines. Culliver, even though he was a rookie has been inconsistent throughout the season and still think hes not ready to step in as a starter. Brock and Holcomb are shaky, just don't believe you can't see how this is really is one of our needs.
Can you count on one hand how many big plays Brown gave up this year? We are 3 deep at CB and Brock is a very solid #4. Holcomb showed good enough potential that we felt it was Ok to release Phillip Adams who had loads of potential as well. We are 5 deep at CB if Rogers comes back. I see two or three guys in this draft who would be a starter over Brown. And there is no way we spend a 1st on a CB if Rogers re-signs. None.
You must have missed Brown's INT on Devery Henderson. Pure 1 on 1 coverage against one of the fastest guys in the league.
As for the TOP, dont you think the fact that we were last in 3rd down % is a bigger reason we lost the TOP battle in some games?
Any DB can shine if our front 7 continues to play like they did last year. Ask the Steelers how many high picks then spend on their secondary. A good pass rush makes average DB's great.
Wow, so nevermind that we've been calling for an upgrade over Brown all year, but lets just bring up ONE of his big plays hes made. I guess you forgot about him being owned in Seattle and avoiding contact on two plays in that game.
LOL check out Brown in this vid, its like he completely opens the door for Baldwain: http://www.nfl.com/videos/seattle-seahawks/09000d5d82562b5b/QB-Jackson-to-WR-Baldwin-13-yd-pass-TD
Seriously, your crazy if you think we're going into next season with Rogers, Brown, Culliver, Brock and Holcomb, I'll pretty much guarantee you that we won't.
Nobody is saying how come you don't have a first day pick spent on a CB or DB, its the fact that YOU didn't draft one period.
And your right the Steeler's don't spend high draft picks on CB's, WHY, because they were fortunate enough to find a starter in Ike Taylor in the 4th round and McFadden in the 2nd in '05. And trust me I'd take McFadden or Taylor over Brown any day of the week, oh and they just drafted Curtis Brown in the 3rd this past draft.
But whatever this is your Mock Draft, no since getting all worked up over moves you'd like to see.
