Cox -- cut once, brought back cuz wright in the doghouse;
Morris -- Love the kid, no experience, unknown at slot corner;
Cook -- spotty record in Minn;
This is what we had before the draft. I think this situation warrants 2 high round picks IMO. Love to have two solid studs so we can trade/ps/cut wright or cox and not have to hang our hat on Cook.
If we don't see value at db, then lets go pass rush. A good rush covers for db deficiancies. Ealy, trade up for Easley.
That didn't happen either.
C, OL, RB. Just doesn't make sense to me.
Cully -- ACL + charges; Still the best outside corner we had after Brown. Lets not forget he went man to man with Megatron twice and kept him in check
Brock -- Solid; legit.
Wright -- did not look like an everydown player last year -- would not take a hit; Showed something to be brought back, not to mention he didnt have much of an offseason last year to prepare for the league year.
Cox -- cut once, brought back cuz wright in the doghouse; once he got brought back it could be argued was one of the best DBs on the field for the playoffs.
Morris -- Love the kid, no experience, unknown at slot corner; Agree, love him for ST, complete unknown in terms of CB.
Cook -- spotty record in Minn; Might not even make the team if a rookie shows too much promise for the PS.
We drafted a kid in the 1st round that likely will play 60% of the time... then we have this scouting departments track record of late round CBs... so why all the worry again?
