I know it means nothing but Kiper and Mayock don't even list him in the top 5 of Corners and has Jamar Taylor rising. I think there is a chance this guy drops to the middle of the second round and that could be a steal. I just like his versatility and his above average instincts. Also, he is loaded with confidence and has stated that he can cover the best WRs the NFL has to offer. That is a stretch for any college player, but he looks like he plays a lot faster than his time. If we land this guy in the second round, I would be psyched. Now that we have a complement to Crabtree, I don't see a need to draft a wideout in the first three rounds, which leaves d-line and the secondary. I say we load up on physical players with great production in college.
I just think the value is there and everything I see suggests that he is dropping, so I don't see the negative. Trufant may end up being the better corner, but he is rising to the first round and will most likely be gone by the niners pick. If the Baalke is thinking about trading up to get Trufant, that is fine and I trust it, but with Banks falling, there is an opportunity. Also, Baalke values front seven bodies more than the secondary guys, so I don't see him drafting a safety or corner in the first. I could be wrong. I never thought they would draft Aldon Smith at #7 and that worked out just fine
