In fact, CB is a volume position now. Probably better to have 3 or 4 at least average ones with a variety of body types and skills than one guy. Rick Smith's approach was initially correct at the position in terms of drafting one every year, but his execution of who to draft and the more need based approach to drafting of the last two years has made good philosophy moot.
