They've got us taking Kenny Philips, FS from the "U", at number 14.
Oddly enough, that looks like a decent mock for being so dadgum early.
I was actually thinking the same thing.
Sorry for the repeat, didn't see drews!
Here is Rd 2.
I wouldn't be upset with Kenny Phillips at all esp. at 14. However I think it would serve us well to take Ryan Clady instead. Surprise they had him at 19? and Oher at 7. Hope both these guys declare and make a rich OL class for the 1st round.
Who do they have us taking in the 2nd? Oh wait....haha
That's not funny..............
Don't be sorry, pard. I think you beat me by a couple of minutes!
I'd rather have any of the following:
Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State*
Ryan Clady, OT, Boise State*
Reggie Smith, CB, Oklahoma*
Vernon Gholston, DE, Ohio State*
Keith Rivers, LB, USC
Gosder Cherilus, OT, Boston College
I'd be happy with an OT or a S. Wouldn't hear a peep from me.
Need a FS or OT. Personally I think the offensive line (once again) should be our top priority. We can't depend on Charles Spencer to recover completely. If he does, then more power to us!
You see free safety as a bigger need than corner with DR maybe not making it back? Are you ok with Hutchins maybe or looking for FA CB?
I wouldn't be upset with a CB. When Dunta comes back off the PUP next year, we can move one of them to FS.
I wouldn't mind having Dunta at FS and having two young corners. If he can recover 100% and not lose a step, then all the better.
For the ga-billionth time, Dunta is a CB, he will alsways be a CB; and any notion of moving him to FS is just wrong.
How many times are we going to go through this, Dunta is not a FS.
When did you start making personnel decision for the Texans?
Rod Woodson was knockout top 2 CB in the league for many years; injury and age forced him to S where he led a number of very productive defenses. If the options facing DUNTA are playing Safety or unemployment I'm sure I know what he'll pick.
I agree with PapaL on this one. If Dunta loses a step due to injury, he will be considered at FS. It's not that uncommon.
I think with our vastly improving front 7 seven plus the improved play of Bennett and probably a mid-level FA CB we should be ok. I don't think there would be a CB of value player where we pick in the first. Of course the junior coming out, Senior Bowl and combine is going to have a big effect on it all though.
Yep... the FA is the big wildcard in all of this. What good CBs are going to be on the market this offseason?
What about DeAngelo?
I honestly think thie Bennett guy is a keeper. Young, althetic, a little raw - reminds of a slightly less polished Dunta.
Any Gamecock CB's coming out this year? 1.5 out of 2 ain't bad.
