geeze everyone gripping about us not having any picks in the later rounds.. HELLO we had to give the Raiders something.. and this guy would have probably been a 1st rounder this year as it is.. He is probably Glenn's replacement in a couple of years (without the 1st round money at this point in time)

Phillip Buchanon, CB - Miami

By Marta Lavandier, AP

Buchanon by the numbers

* Ht: 5'10"
* Wt: 186
* 40-time: 4.31
* Vertical jump: 37"

Positives: Compactly built athlete who stays tight with receivers on deep routes…Has good play development recognition skills…Keeps a tight relationship with the receiver in the open and despite his size, is very effective jamming the opponent at the line of scrimmage...Can cover ground instantly with his closing burst...Plays good angles and shows top-end speed... Can play the bump-&-run or man coverage equally well.

Negatives: Can stay with the receiver deep, but struggles to much to get his head turned to track the ball…Hesitant to throw his body around when asked to step up and fill the rush lanes…Plays too conservative and stays too deep in the zone, which makes him late in handling the switch-off…Has very short arms and small hands for this position.

REMINDS ME OF…DONNIE ABRAHAM, ex-Buccaneer: Few players have the pass theft skills that Buchanon possesses.

CAREER NOTES: Has scored on an interception, fumble and punt return during his career…Recorded 88 tackles (62 solos) in 32 games for the Hurricanes… Returned 32 punts for 477 yards (14.9 avg) and a pair of touchdowns, adding 235 yards and a pair of scores on seven interceptions.

PERSONAL: Liberal Arts major…Son of Annie Dalis and James Buchanon…Born Phillip Darren Buchanon on 9/19/80…Resides in Lehigh, Florida.



...like it or not.. this draft we filled 2 needs... Youth in the DL (2 over 30) and
more youth in the secondary (2 over 30) and both areas have high dollars invested in them

Jets took Corey Webster with the pick that we gave to the Raiders and the Raiders traded to the Jets..

I am thinking most of us would take Buchanon over Webster.

That was the NY Giants pick, and not the NY Jets.
