In the past 10 years The 49ers have selected 18 DBs in the draft of those only 5 have heights less than 6'0
Only 1 DB was selected higher than the 6th round ( Tarell Brown 5th Round 2007)
The fact that the 49ers had Brock starting was more due to injury (BTW I believe he was our best CB last year) but he earned his starting job the hard way, and of course I need not remind anyone he was undrafted. The loss of Cooper also affected the size of the defensive backfield He would have been called to duty if he would have ever made it to the PS instead of Morris. Morris was great on ST for us but I am sure everyone of us wishes Cooper was in a 49ers uniform regardless... The 49ers like size in their secondary no if and buts about that. This years draft has many CBs with length and long arms and I am sure Baalke knows the name of all of them and he will be calling the name of a few of them on draft day...Baalke will have the jumbo size defenders in the secondary, that he has always emvisioned
