    Are you seriouse :wacko: what 3 outstanding CBs do we have. We have 2 very good ones, one who is young and will become outstanding, and one who was outstanding but is on the decline of his carrer. How long do you expect Glenn to play at the level that he has been at for the last 3 years. Come on, I can see the drop in his production since the Texans expansion year when he went to the Pro- Bowl. Now, dont get me wrong I love Glenn and would love to see him play this way forever but that cant happen and if he goes down, who do we have ...Faggins.

    I like Faggins but he is not starter material, hes good when we play nickel and when their are 3 or more receivers on the field, but I would not trust him to 1 on1 coverage with some of the better receivers.

    I dont think that we need to take a CB in the 1st round if there is someone better, but if DJ, Barron, and TD are gone but either Antrell or Pac-Man is on the board, dont be suprised if we go with the stud CB.

    I agree. I think CB or DL is what we need. You hit the nail on the head with CB. one player injured changes the whole dynamics of the secondary Unless Coleman gets switched back to corner

    DL ... we have seen what happens when 1 or 2 get injured.. we lack depth in that department..

    I really doubt we go OL at #13. I just don't think Barron or any other guy is worth taking that high. A CB like Pac-Man or DL like Spears seems reasonable. But of course, we'll go with the BPA that isn't a QB.

    I think K, P, FB, and QB are the most glaringly obvious ones, but as far as CB goes I have to agree that if one of the top two corners fell into our lap we might very well take him. Also, as far as RB goes, even though we may not have a desperate need for one if somehow or someway Ronnie Brown fell to 13 I think CC would have a hard time passing up on him. I think there aren't many positions that you can say that we would not take a guy in the 1st Round.

    :hmmm: The strength of this draft is CB I think WR is next after that I guess RB. The 3rd best CB is a real good player the 3rd best WR is a real good player RBs go at least three deep also . Thats nine players , add 2 QBS + DJ + 9 ( 3CB,3WR,3RB ) = 12 players . We pick 13 so any of the 12 that falls except the QBs we take or trade the pick if someone really wants a RB .

    Other than special teamsa players k/p you can only rule out ONE position and that is QB .


    Let me explain what BPA .... it means the BEST PROSPECT AVAILABLE reguardless of needs elsewhere .

    When you start eliminating positions (Even QB if that was the highest rated player available ) you are NOT drafting BPA , you are drafting out of NEED .
    Sure a player from the top half of the first round should make some impact on his team . But if a stud talent is available at a position you dont feel the need to upgrade and you take a lesser rated player .... you didnt take the BPA .
