Was wondering if some of you draft buffs here in the Zone would make a few player comparisons with this years rookies.
My biggest comparison is Justin Gilbert. I feel like he can be compared to Patrick Peterson, but I feel Peterson was a better DB coming out than Gilbert, but I think Gilbert could develop into a better DB.
Ahmed Plummer was the #1 rated CB coming out and even though he was a solid player, he never developed much better than his first couple of years.
RW McQuarters was the same way, he seemed like he had a ton of talent and could be a great shutdown CB and also had the return abilities that made him a valuable player at the time, but he never really panned out to be that lockdown talent.
Then there was Jason Webster, at the time I remember literally screaming at my TV saying how he was rightly named Webster because of his midget stature, but dude was a baller and was arguably one of our best DBs during that time.
I know it's not an exact science, but I think the so called safer picks almost never turn out as the best picks.
So when comparing this years DB class, who do the top guys compare to?
