It is apparent to me that the number one priority of the draft is finding a pro bowl quality starting cornerback. Our current best corner is Brock and he is fast but undersized. Even though we typically keep our cbs on the same side all game, i feel it would be more efficient to pair him with a larger cornderback who could line up with the bigger receivers for those jump ball fades in the redzone that are becoming popular. Heck we tried to win the super bowl that way ourselves and then again tried to get back to one the same way. That being said, here are 5 corners I feel we should target this tearj
My tablet is skrewing up and cant finish post. My other CB I'm watching is McGill, Roby, Verret although he is undersizedWatkins, Aikens, and Fuller
1. Justing Gilbert has tremendous speed, leaping ability, and prototypical size. He had 7 picks last year, and is a threat to score everytime he gets his hands on the ball. He also excells as a return guy, and I feel he would improve our defense and score points for our defense. A little raw on his coverage skills, but still my favorite corner in the draft and feel he is one of two players I would trade up into the top 15 this year for.
2. Darqueze Denard is my 2nd favorite corner and feel he would be worth possibly moving up into the 19 to 25 range. A little undersized and not as fast as i would like, but he has a nose for the football and is a playmaker. Is better suited as a press corner and we play a lot of off man though. Reminds me of Tyran Matieu the honey badger from LSU.
