Theres no value in a corner deep draft taking a corner in the top 5 who isn't that special.

I'd be happy with Dee Milliner.

If we do in fact let go of Nnamdi, we have to realize that we haven't heard any reports of us having made any attempt to re-sign DRC .

We won't be heading into next year with no starters at corner. No guarantee that Sean Smith or any other top FA CB will sign with us.

The one thing we do control is the ability to draft Dee Milliner at #4 overall.

I wouldn't be angry if we took Milliner but I'd much rather take Jordan with this being a decent CB class. Very good value in rounds 2 and 3 for CB's.

Agreed. Get a good pass rush, and CBs look even better than they are.

I'd be ok with Dee, Is he worth #4 in a general sense? Eh probably not....in this draft? Yeah.

I think there are better ways to go...but if Star's heart doesn't check out, Dion is gone, and we can't trade back......there are much much worse things we can do than draft Dee.

I'd put Dee in the category with Lane Johnson/Eric Fisher, that'd I'd prefer them to trade down a bit and get like a third then take them....but I'm not going to be furious if we take him at #4.

I wish we would have had been able to agree on a restructure only because of how thin our secondary is, but I can't really be too mad about the release as he played poorly last season and anything above $6M/year would be overpaying him.

I like Dee Milliner, I think he is special. Maybe not #4 special but I have no doubt the guy will be a solid NFL corner. The problem I have with us drafting him is that being taken that high, coupled with the unit's extremely poor performance of late, will put a tremendous and unfair amount of pressure on him. He will have to not just start from day one, but also play better than the disappointments he is replacing. He will basically be expected to save our secondary after being drafted that high. This would not be the case with a lineman or pass rusher.

You have to be extremely confident to play CB in the NFL, and that confidence develops from experience. But even if a guy is "special," putting him in that situation (our dreadful secondary) so early on could kill his career. I don't want us to approach the CB situation like that, I feel like that's what happened to Nnamdi and it contributed heavily to his poor play. No one can knock Aso's technique, I feel like his poor play resulted from him getting older AND from a lack of confidence/mental issues.

I would MUCH rather we drafted 2 corners in a deep draft between the 3rd and 5th (ala Seattle) and let them compete for starting jobs, coach them up, let them learn and struggle with the whole team (in a rebuilding year). Maybe they blossom, maybe they don't, but it's lower risk and lower expectations which is exactly what this team needs right now.
