Also, drafting a CB in the #1 would give us some flexibilty in the secondary. I think Walt Harris would make an outstanding FS. He has great instincts and has a knack for making plays. Plus, it would help to hide his speed a bit. I've nearly given up on Spencer and Tarrel Brown's knee set him back. We could use some more talent in the secondary.
How is that. It was at the end of the year and he will be ready for our offseason program?
I could see us taking a FS high but not a CB. To many other needs. Like a passrush. Unless we sign Smith.
You wouldn't call a torn MCL and a partially torn ACL a setback? Players train year around..
I wouldn't be against taking a FS high, but this a weak class. Cromartie or Reggie Smith would make great FSs and could also double as a coverman.
Look, all I'm getting at is that we're not that deep in the secondary and if someone falls, it could be a great move for the future.
Set back. No. A set back would have been something like what happened to Jay Moore. T. Brown got valuable experience his first year. Some players dont even participate in the offseason programs or OTA's but he will be ready for both.
If we were to sign Smith I would agree. But if that werent to happen then we have more glaring needs. Thats all I'm saying. Nolan and Scot need to win this year. Not the next. Im just saying its very unlikely that we do it and that what we have in the defensive backfield is more than adequate. I would rather sign another CB before I would take one. CB's and WR's are so boom or bust. WR's depending on the system that is.
