The problem I see is that rookie corners rarely succeed in the NFL. If we are relying on a rookie then we might be in big trouble.
I don't think that's the case. I can think of at least three Niner corners who came in and did real good right from the start. Obviously, Lott and Wright in '81 were corners and they both made the pro bowl. Eric Davis also did very well as a rookie. This season, Milner came in and did well, Trufant did okay for the Falcons and of course Cooper, who we let get away, did very well for KC. Last year, Janoris Jenkins was good right off the bat for the Rams. Remember, I'm talking about a 1st or 2nd round pick I think they'll spend on what I figure to be one of the top corners in the draft.
