Hopefully this is one of those guys that surprises.
At least it's a position of need.
agreed. just better talent on the board.
I agree. It's a bad pick IMO. We got a 3rd round kick returner.
genus49: Those corners you listed were the exact ones on my radar.
Davon House: Career 11 ints, 36 passes defended
(fair number of good corners have come from small schools - tramon williams (on my sleeper list years ago), rodgers cromartie, grimes, eric wright, kyle wilson)
Johnny Patrick: Career 9 ints, 22 passes defended
Chimdi Chekwa: Career 6 ints, 29 passes defended
Curtis Brown: Career 2 ints, 32 passes defended
I would even have taken Richard Sherman (although projected much lower)
Richard Sherman: Career 4 ints, 9 passes defended
(1 yr after conversion from WR)
I wish I had more detailed statistics on CB's, but # career pass breakups is a very good indicator... just look at Darrelle Revis, Tramon Williams, Leon Hall, Brandon Flowers, Aqib Tali, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.. they all had good college numbers on pass break-ups..
Oh wells.... we got a kick returner and an unproven CB project.
