Question is do you take a chance and give up that many picks on one player? Carlos Rogers was a top 10 pick and he was a decent player but nothing special. Like most, I too think we will need to definately draft two CBs now. Also Verret and Fuller are expected to go before the niners pick. I say pick Varret, although small, he is tenacious and doesn't let the wr get his hands on the ball easily, alway fighting to rip it out and always on the opponents hip-his biggest issue will be durability. The second DB I think should be picked in possibly the 3rd is EJ Gaines, a lot of people like the wr Evans and he is projected to go to the rams, Gaines pretty much shut him down when they met.
Tuitt is gonna have to learn the system and battle for starting time-also Fangio prefers experience guys over rookies and unless they have no choice like reid, Tuittis not going to get much chances to make an impact.
Although Aldon didn't start in 2011, he did play a significant amount of time. A talent like Tuitt could be in a similar position. I do recognize that we don't absolutely have to take a DE, but I think the best combination of a talented DE and a corner would come from taking Tuitt in the first and a player like Pierre Desir or LaMarcus Joyner in the second. They can even go back to CB again in the third if necessary and let the best men win the two starting spots.
