We got our BIG corner here fellas at 6'2 195lbs. At Rutgers' pro day, Cooper ran the 40-yard dash in 4.45 and 4.46 seconds. He had a 39 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-9 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.42 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.89 seconds. He performed 20 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press.

Big, physical, fast, and athletic. Paired with Donatell. Any chance he makes an impact?

Going for size, speed and athleticism again. Two or three years ago I thought our team speed was way to slow and overall our guys weren't overly athletic. Glad to see that changing. Of course, they sstill have to have football skills too. Maybe this guy can beat out Brock- that's a pretty low hurdle to cleear.

Why the dig at Brock? He's extremely fast and physical for his size, being he was a safety in college. As 5th CBs go, he's pretty good talent. He was tendered as a RFA for a reason. Nothing wrong with Brock, or his role except he's a little on the shorter side.

Cooper has some skills which the work with. Has some ST ability. I see us stashing him on the PS for a year, letting him develop a little. Then giving him a shot to see if he can't crack the 53 in 2014.

+1

I'd like to see a deeper secondary than what we have had in the past.
watching the draft I was noticing teams taking DBs left and right in the mid rounds. I feel like we're understaffed at DB for what we are going to see this year in the way of passing attacks.

I hope we can apply enough pressure up front so it won't matter that our back end is not all that hot.

I think our secondary is loaded up well enough for the present. It's probably just concerning others (like me) that we have a lot of short-term players (seemingly) and we didn't stock up for the future by taking advantage of such a thick and talented CB class. Still... I'm sure a plan is in place, so I don't think we will leave ourselves in a desperate bind after the season.

Everybody keeps saying that, but where would we keep all these CB's for the future? Any non-first round talent we added would have almost no shot at making the roster over Rogers, Aso, Brown, and Cully. Also if we tried to put them on the PS, they would get swooped up by somebody else and we would have wasted a pick. Even if we lose all of the first three guys (Rogers, Brown, Aso) next year, we will do what it takes to field a secondary. We will get a discount FA or two, and use a high draft pick on one. Chances are we will keep one of them though IMO, and if we have Brown and Culliver (for example) we have two starting caliber CBs and our situation seems much less dire.

I see where you are coming from, but you kinda answered the question in the same post. You named 4 CBs.. the supposed mid-rd rookie CB selected would be #5... therefore pushing Brock off the roster.. which many love the idea of. That rookie CB would have a multi-year deal, and therefore be one more CB to have 2013 under his belt in our system and a roster spot for more playing time in the following years. (vs Brock on a 1 yr tender)

This is something I stated in that post you quoted as well.

^ ... but then I think of another CB not mentioned... Perrish Cox. So yeah, selecting a rookie CB in the mid-rd would likely guarantee that both Cox and Brock are getting booted. So, it does make some sense that we waited so long to address corner. I actually think our group of CBs are solid... but like I said.. maybe people are just very uncomfortable with having so many corners with such short contracts remaining.

Yeah, my post wasn't directed at you specifically, you just happened to be the last one to post on the subject. To the first point you make in response though, I would say that any mid-round guy would have trouble beating Brock/Cox for that 5th roster spot and we would face the same problems in trying to stash them on the PS.
