    ike is solid, and could be a pro bowler type player

    mcfadden is up and coming

    townsend is nice depth

    we do not need a corner in the first
    Right on! Lack of a pass rush will kill a secondary faster than anything. David Carr could have thrown for over 250 on us last year. Plus look at the field of corners we have vs. whos in the draft. McFadden- soon to be pro-bowl material, Ike- will show you why we resigned him to a nice sized contract in 06' plus he SHUTS DOWN your boy Chad Johnson every year. Deshea- will most likely lose hit starting spot this season but he will still be a solid guy in the depth chart. And dont forget Colclough, he showed signs of brightness late in the 05' season as did McFadden. If Iwoama can step in and play a lil on passing downs we have a nice compliment of CB's already. But when did Hall become overated, he is still the best CB in the draft IMHO!!! But no we wont take him...

    i think houston or revis are the best corners, hall got raped by jarrett and ginn in back to back games...way to step up in the biggest games of your life right before you turn pro.

    Also, cocfaces brightness was non existant, he got thrashed by greg lewis twice in the preseason game, and he just ****ed up in general in the limited time he played last year. he is so inconsistant its not even funny, just some dead weight who was another one of cowhers guys.

    as much as i like chidi, hes a career special teamer, but good enough at it to keep around imo

    Huh, good points... i havent given up on Colclough yet, lets see what Tomlin can do w/ him. Chidi is ST's for life. Hall is still the best CB in this draft, Ginn and Jarrett destroyed EVERYBODY they played against this year. So lets not put that all on him. He is the best at the position and will have an easier transition into the NFL. Reevis, im not sold... and i LIVE IN PITTSBURGH, LOL. Houston is a SICK Athelete but he will have a lil harder time then Reevis and Hall will adjusting to playing corner in the pro's i think. I

    well i think overall this year is weak at CB, as well as last year...the only corner worth a first round last year was cromartie. I just cant get on the leon hall bandwagon....we dont need a corner anyway so who cares lol.

    Mabey tomlin will be great for cocface, mabey even good enough to make me stop refering to him as cocface, but i think hes a scrub...i hope im wrong

    I was just thinking that when I was looking at 3 football draft magazines today. I mean I wouldn't be a bad idea plus the depth this year at OLB/DE is huge. Try think of a time when a long-term starter at LB for us came in the first round (Kendrell Bell doesn't count). It never works that way for us. Kevin Colbert never takes LBs in the first round or second round for that matter. Knowing how we draft, I would not be suprised or angry if they draft a CB.

    but the thing is, we used to be able to get superstars in the later rounds because no one wanted that kind of player, everyone is looking for the tweener LB now and that makes coming across them much harder, we have to take waht we can get....things have changed over the last few years

    Don't know if it's smokescreens

    But i keep hearing on sirius from numerous announcers,x-players and even on NFL network that we'll be drafting a corner in the 1st

    Plus we all know Tomlin's expertease is the secondary
    So i wouldn't be surprised at all if we draft a corner in the 1st

    If that happens i guess we'll all get a
    I know i'm in the minority,but i still believe "Okoye" will be a helluva a player
    He'd be a great situational player for us and eventually be a full time *** kicker
