Default Maybe a CB with our first?

Back in 2002 Philadelphia spent 2 first day picks (a first and 2nd ) on two corner backs even though they had a premiere CB in Vincent anda good veteren in Bobby Taylor. Everyone qusetioned this move because they already have one of the best secondaries at that time. 3 yrs later and they still do even though both of their starters left in FA last year. Last draft they also picked up 3 DB and they continue to have success in the secondary. I can see the Texans taking some more DB in this years draft and Pac-Man Jones is the type of CB I could see us go after. He is pretty much identical to Dunta and look at what kind of influence he had on our team. Jones is also a vicious hitter and helps in run support and is a dangerous return man. With Peyton and his WR our nickel and dime have to be a really good ones because the Colts just have too many weapons. Same situation with Philly because they had to compete with the Rams and Warner and needed to draft a lot of DB to stay competitive.

Antonio Perkins is another Dunta type of CB.

CB would be a good idea. Another Dunta would be outstanding!

I'm not sure about Jones, I think the better comparison is DeAnglo Hall. Very fast, but I don't know how physical. I think the DB we go after is Carlos Rogers. Don't expect us to draft more that 1 guy in the secondary on day 1 though, unless we find a steal in the 3rd.

Jones is largely compared to Dunta in most places from what I have read.

Jones is more like Hall, because both will take a lot of risks and make the play more often than not. Eventhough Jones is built more like Dunta than Hall.

I watched that "Hey Rookie, Welcome to the NFL" show last night on ESPN2.. and they were talking about Dunta Robinson playing both Nickle and right CB. And at one point Dunta was talking about how much that was wearing him down.

It made me think that there is a better chance we will get ourselves another CB in this draft. ANd the first round seems a likely spot to do it.
