    I came into the combine with Banks, neck and neck with Milliner as the top CBs.

    That is no longer the case. Xavier Rhodes is the "other" top tier corner. He is so strong, so fluid in his movements. Banks was shockingly bad. His agility in drills exhibited a TON of wasted body movement. He has a lot of work to do. He may have gotten by on strength and jam at the college level, but his athleticism for a corner (hips), is in serious question... might drop him out of the first round.

    Milliner is the top Zone corner, Rhodes is the top press corner.

    Alford is the corner nipping at their heels.
    Trufant is right there in the mix

    Banks and Poyer hurt themselves

    At one point I had Banks as the top corner in the draft. The combine matters.

    This is my take on the combine....

    Any of these guys would be good somewhere in the draft.

    Ogletree-Eifert-dion jordan 1st

    Kyle Long - Lane Johnson – Terron Armstead 2nd

    Vance McDonald TE 3rd

    Schwenke C - 4th Move Pouncey.. Vinston Painter OL 4th

    Ellington – Taylor – Kniles Davis RB

    Woods WR or Wheaton WR

    Cornielus washington lb 5th

    Leon McFadden 4.47 6’1’

    Brandon McGee

    These guys our smooth balanced athletes....

    never liked banks too much, rhodes just confirmed what i already thought. Dont know what to make of banks anymore at all though, might be looking like a FS, but hes not exactly built for that either.

    I think Amerson is a big time sleeper, dude was unreal in 2011....looked like a top 5 pick, then fell off and got burnt a lot. He runs a good time and still is the top conversion guy to FS, but could definitely play CB on some teams
