CB Prospects

Love all the names already listed; here are a few others...some sleepers, some more well known:

Terry Hawthorne, Illinois (6'0", 195) - Has developed into a solid CB prospect; had a great week at the Shrine Game
Will Davis, Utah St. (5'11", 183) - Awesome senior season, especially down the stretch
Jakar Hamilton, South Carolina St. (5'11", 190) - Former Georgia Bulldog can play safety, corner and is an excellent return specialist
B.W. Webb, William & Mary (5'10" 185) - Stood out in Senior Bowl practices as a cover corner and sure-handed, play-making returner
Brandon McGee, Miami (5'10", 190) - Great week of practice at the Shrine Game but didn't do much during the year; could be a late-round steal
Sheldon Price, UCLA (6'1", 178) - Excellent height, but needs to put on more weight...solid ball skills, but needs a few years to develop
Khalid Wooten, Nevada (5'11", 211) - Former teammate of Kap, Wooten has some skills but ultimately might need to move to FS
Aaron Hester, UCLA (6'1", 203) - Former 4x400 state champ with great size/talent but majorly inconsistent; another potential FS down the road
You guys are missing a very good CB in you conversation. Jamar Taylor from Boise St. is a really good player.

Darius Slay from MSU is another guy not often mentioned. If he runs well at the combine, he could jump in to the 2nd round...if not, he's a bigger CB that could be had in the 3rd/4th round.

This. He's got terrific size and was largely overshadowed by his more hyped teammate but he's a very good cornerback in his own right.

My diamonds in the rough are the following.

Aaron Hester of UCLA
Marcus Cromartie of Wisconsin
Keith McGill of Utah (i really thought that he would be at the very least, a 2nd rounder before the season started)
Sheldon Price of UCLA
My current board of best player available
1. Milliner
2. Banks
3. Trufant
4. Amerson
5. Alford

I think Poyer is the best pure cover corner, but he is so small it scares me. As for Rhodes, I think he might play corner for a couple years, but shift to FS, so I didn't put him on the list.
My list in order of who I would prefer is:
1. Milliner
2. Rhodes
3. Banks
4. Trufant
5. Ryan
6. Poyer

I don't think the first round pick should be used on a CB (unless we manage to move up to early second). I'd much rather focus on D-line with that pick (hopefully Datone Jones). Realistically, the CBs that will be available in the second round are probably Rhodes (a bit of a long shot), Trufant, Ryan, and Poyer.

Worked with Ronnie Lott. I would put him near the top because he is BIG and athletic. I really think the Niners need a big physical corner.

Having watched Taylor alot through his career, he offers alot, but some of his technique is worrisome. Hes not great in press coverage, he lets WR's get behind him too much, and i dont think he would be great in zone coverage as his recovery speed is lacking. He is a real boom or bust type pick.

This. And he doesn't support the run aggressive enough if at all for my liking.

I disagree with that. At the LOS he is very effective in run support. where he struggles is open field tackleing.

Amerson is the only one in that first group that'll be available for us in the 2nd. Hester will be there for us in the 7th. Simon is a high to mid 3rd at worst. I have us taking Amerson in the 2nd.
Fill in the blank... The very earliest i would draft the honey badger at is _____ ... Just curious on what other ppl's thoughts of him are and his potential value... I see him as a potential shutdown nickel back and return specialist... But how valuable is a nickelback if he's only on the field for 3rd downs... Does his aggression make up for his lack of height ?
