    I've made up my mind.

    If he's on the board at 10, and no one of significance has fallen this is the player I want.

    can't go wrong with hall.

    i don't like the comparison, though. hall is one of the better athletes at his position in this draft. chris houston ran a faster 40, but look at all the drills--hall beat houston in all of 'em. 4-year starter in a tough conference. could also return some kicks or putns in a pinch.

    NFL network did their little in depth coverage, that they do for the prospects, on him yesterday...

    I watched him play a couple times, but the times I watched he didn't really stand out...

    But they showed some film and I fell in love with his technique...And you're right...he is a better athlete than what he's given credit for...

    Hall just doesn't seem like a shut down corner. I don't think he'd beat out DRob as the #1 CB either. I think Revis and Houston have the most potential to be shut down corners and either could be #1 CBs on the team. If you look at Houston's 2006 game film vs. Hall's, Houston was WAY more impressive. But Hall has been consistent throughout his careeer. I'd also be stoked if I saw Revis and Mathis as our KRs, our special teams would be a force to be reckoned with.

    I think most people agree that Hall has excellent technique for a college player.

    He is also a lot faster and athletic than he is given credit for.

    With his skills and technique there is no reason to believe that he will not be a shut down CB.

    I wouldn't expect any rookie we drafted to un-seed Dunta as our #1 corner...

    I agree....

    And it's not like there are tons of better options at 10...

    Actually, I don't think he plays up to his speed.

    Even in his 3rd or 4th year, I don't think Hall could take the #1 CB position from DRob.

    I don't even understand why that matters ??

    We're always going to have atleast two corners on the field...


    And didn't we take Dunta at 10? We'd be taking Hall at 10...

    I thought Jarrett had a good game against Hall.

    Right, well I'd rather have a shutdown CB(Revis or Houston) and a good CB (Dunta) rather than just two good CBs (Dunta & Hall).

    Why does it matter where we took Dunta?

    Hall covered Steve Smith in that game.

    I think you're mixed up here.

    Dunta is a playmaker CB, a guy who takes risks. Revis is the same way. He is very good, but he is not a shut down CB.

    Hall never takes risks. He always plays the WR, never the ball. He only gets INTs on bad throws. I have no problem with that. I would trade INTs if it would guarantee that our CB would have the WR smothered on every play. That is why Hall is a shut down guy.

    More and more I'm beginning to agree with you on that subject.

    I thought Trent and Hall alternated covering Jarrett and he beat them both.

    Because you said he wouldn't beat Dunta out as the number 1 corner...I'm trying to figure out how that's relevant and why that matters....

    You say it as if Dunta is terrible....Like "he can't even beat out this scrub"...

    With Leon Hall, there aren't too many teams that'd have a good young duo like us...

    And you're saying you'd rather have players that aren't going that high, and won't be there in the third round..

    IMHO, Leon will be one of the more safer choices for us....Not to mention it's a position of dire need...
