Position group discussion: Cornerbacks

It seems like Baalke and co do a good job of identifying CBs. Hopefully, our little group will have some quality people on there to develop and Cooper, Rose, and Morris will be around for awhile and turn into some quality NFL level CBs.

It's also interesting that the Niners haven't selected a CB high in the draft for a long time...

2013: 7th round - Marcus Cooper
2012: None Selected
2011: 3rd round - Chris Culliver, 7th round - Curtis Holcomb
2010: 7th round - Phillip Adam
2009: None Selected
2008: 3rd round - Reggie Smith (projected to safety)
2007: 5th round - Tarell Brown
2006: 6th round - Marcus Hudson, 7th round - Demetrice Webb

So, I guess our FO strategy isn't to spend high draft capital on CBs.

We took Cully in the 3rd in 2011.

Rogers, Brown, Nnamdi, Culliver, Brock all make this team easily. Battle is just for the last spot.

I'm sure Nnamdi will be solid, but not so sure about Brock.

I think that their strategy is to draft for "gems" that can be trained in the lower rounds and then get players like Rogers and Asomaugha who are proven players.
management clearly believes pass rush is the key to pass defense and improves DB play

Stupid auto correct on my phone!!!

it's all good, bro, i'm just joshin with you

I like Gulliver (travels) better...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uqALm_rmM1g

Donatell to Harbaugh, "Coach, Gulliver has to start against Boldin in the Superbowl."
Harbaugh, "He'll never make man-of-the-year! We're doomed!"
Gulliver upon gay perspectives, "It'll never work!"

I agree...hearing a lot of good things about Cooper. His size (6-2), leaping ability (39" vertical at his pro day) and speed (4.45) all good attributes...and he impressed our coaches this past weekend. Long way to go, but so far, there's a lot to like about this kid.
