1. CB. After Haden there is a severe downgrade. Patterson is decent and Skrine is improving, but they should be our nickle and dime backs..


They are the nickel and dime CBs when Haden is playing.

Cornerback isn't that big of an issue. Every CB is forced one spot up the depth chart which causes them to not look good. When Haden returns and the players go back to their original spot on the depth chart, all of the cornerbacks will look better.


So Skrine and Patterson are the nickle and dime when Haden is on the field then who does that leave as the #2? Sheldon Brown our 23 year old super star?

Sorry to burst your bubble but there is no way around it CB is a need.

Patterson was running the #2 spot when Haden was there and Skrine was playing over Brown. I don't see how anyone could be satisfied with our secondary. FS is a need but it would almost be like drafting for a WLB when MLB is a need or RG when LG is a need. If we could get a blue chip FS or a second tier CB give me the FS all day, but if they are projected even it would have to be the CB.


I disagree.

Skrine and Wade have shown flashes that they can play in this league. They are worth letting develop. Patterson can play the slot with the best of them.

AT FS, however, there is no "flash". The FO lost faith in Hagg and Young couldn't keep the job from a 7th round pick. There is no one at FS.


Exactly. I'm not against drafting a cornerback, but I think a free safety is a much bigger need. The Browns have some potential at cornerback with Skrine and Wade but they have nothing at free safety.

While I think free safety is a big need I just don't see a top 15 safety prospect in the draft right now. Right now I'd go corner or def. end with our top pick. This could change though.


Eric Reid, FS LSU will shoot up boards like Barron last year.


Yeah he could but right now he is not. There is a lot of college ball left. I think Jonathan Banks c.b. miss. st. may shoot up the board also.

Banks is already considered to be a mid-first rounder. I like him a lot too. Decent size and ball skills

If we somehow came away with both Reid and Banks, our defense would be a pass-rusher away from being elite.

*edit* and a run stout LB.

I mean I could see him shooting into the top 8-10. Ilike this kid a lot. Isn't he like 6 foot 1 or 2. Helps us cover the A.J. Greens of the world.
