    OK, but at what price ? I'd maybe throw in a 3rd round pick to move up and get him, but we know the least it would cost is a 2nd round pick if he's still on the Board when the Cards are picking at #5. I suppose some people would even give up multiple picks including next years first rounder which I think is crazy ! But just think of all of the "can't miss" guys who have ended up being busts ?

    An interesting fact I came across: Amukamara intercepted only five of the 27passes he broke up over his career. Oddly, all five interceptions came during his junior season

    Interceptions are a overrated stat. The guy is a excellent corner and the secondary is the biggest problem on this team....by a pretty wide margin. If Prince is there, I'd take him.

    I voted for neither. Robert Quinn missed out on an entire year of football and the only thing shooting is draft stock up is his athletic ability and intangibiles. Prince Amukamara was schooled VS Oklahoma St. when he was covering Blackmon.

    Neither. Quinn had 1 good year and has a lot of potential. You know who else had 1 good year and potential written all over him coming into the draft? Amobi Okoye.

    Prince got burned by Juston Blackmon repeatedly. Blackmon is a special player, but he will face a lot of them in the NFL. Does he have the goods to be a #1 CB?

    I will take 3-4DE Cam Jordan. You know exactly what you are getting: a very good 3-4 DE who may be able to give you a lot more.

    Oh my bad...I just looked at the thread title and thought this was between Quinn or Prince.

    There's other players I'd take other those two. I can think of a certain WR I'd like other them, even though it isn't our biggest need. I think Jones can be a special player and I think our hole at the #2 spot is bigger than some people realize. We need to find a guy to groom behind AJ.

    I wouldn't go all Ditka over Miller, but I would swap 1st rounders this year, 3rd Rounder this year and maybet a player or 1 of next years picks. Depends on where he's at if/when we decide to pull the trigger. I would go even further and, depending on the board, try to move up to the late 1st round and try to get one of the top CB's left on the board. As has been posted before, the current regime has nothing to lose and everything to gain by going for broke on this draft. I'd go all in.:fans:

    I wish we could get miller but people are talking about him going is the top 5 so I don't see this happening

    Picking Quinn or jordorn would be a safe pick

    But I'm thinking prince and Julio jones will both fall 2 us and there pretty good players IMO

    ANSI would think prince would be our number 2 cb and Jackson our number 1

    CB is a need for sure but I am not sure I would take another CB in the first round.

    Robert Quinn b/c our Secondary will be worthless w/o any pass rush.

    On the flip side...

    Prince b/c our defense won't be worth a crap even if we did have Quinn without a warm body in the secondary. When your DBs are falling down everywhere and you can't cover to save your life, it's not because of pass rush.

    It takes at least 2-3 years for a CB to make an impact. So you want to pair Jackson with Prince.

    Sure is going to make our secondary a lot better.

    oh wait we did the exact same thing last year

    I picked Prince. We have to improve our historically bad secondary. And I know the secondary play is dependent upon how much pressure the defensive front can put, but the bottom line is that the secondary was awful beyond belief. If he's there, we should take him unless there is a better rated player on the board.

    That's why we need to concentrate on going after a top CB in FA.

    I picked Quinn but I'd still be happy with Prince.

    Whoever the pick is, we still need to go out and get some quality secondary players in free agency. A veteran CB is a must whether Prince is picked or not.

    Who told you that it take 2-3 years for a CB to make a difference. :lol: That's downright silly. :wadepalm: Hate to break this to you buddy, but if you're waiting 2-3 years for your CB to "make a impact" most likely said player is a bust.



    Also when the heck did we pair Jackson with Prince or spend two back to back high round draft picks on that position? Glover Quinn was a low draft and Jackson was a 1st round rookie. Quinn didn't rate anywhere near Prince. Heck coming out more often than not Quinn was rated higher as a safety than he was a corner.
