    Shutdown corner?

    We need one and maybe Tomlin can turn Ike into one but if not check this guy out. His speed and size are what I was looking at also. 6' 1" 205lbs. and a 4.35-40

    I don't think we can ignore CB in this draft for the simple reason that Deshea is getting older now and we need to have a top 3rd QB that we can rely on so I'd definitely look for us to address this in 2007.

    I'd love to have this guy but if we did take somebody of his caliber it would probably destroy what confidence he has left before Tomlin and Lebeau have a chance to work with him and build him back up.

    there's no such thing as a shut down cb anymore, the nfl is making it to where in a couple of years, defenders ain't gonna be allowed on the field anymore....i don't think we need to look for a corner in the first 3 rounds, we got to work on the linebackers and oline first............

    I have been keeping up with the senior bowl practices and Mccauley has been struggling during practice. Plus he had a bad senior year. I'm not saying this guy isn't going to be a good player. But his stock has fallen a bit as of late and the Steelers might be able to snag him say 2nd to 3rd round. He has the physical tools for sure.

    Ike is a shutdown corner ask CJ. He may have had an off season but I wouldn't throw him on the trash heap yet.

    yeah, i look at this year more of a sophomore slump since it was really only his second year starting.......plus it didn't help that cowher was coaching him, i say that because cowher wasn't that good of a motivator this year, and he didn't really get into ike like maybe he would've had in the past......... hopefully with a new secondary coach and with tomlin, he'll go back to the basics and learn more about playing the corner spot since he's still got stuff to learn..........

    Ok I'm not throwing Ike to the trash heap even if he rebounds you can never have enough solid cover corners. Hell your safties have to able to cover anymore.

    Really the CB is becoming more useless. Heard a couple rumors that the comp committe is looking to give the WR an even bigger advantage. Picks better spent on OL/DL LB

    I don't think the rule changes are eliminating the CB position, they're just making it like the rule changes in the NHL, where it weeds out the less talented guys who depend on physically being all over a guy in order to stop him. This just forces them to play the position like it's meant to be played. A shutdown corner is still huge. Look at Champ Bailey or even Asante Samuel. They can hurt you so badly with INTs that you don't even throw to their side anymore, thus eliminating a WR.

    speaking of CJ, he has a book out here in OHIO, called CAN'T STOP ME!! I swear to God it is true, I took one look at the book and wanted to wipe my *** with it.
