My Second Rated Team Need...CB..Source Walter Football...

WalterFootball.com

1. DeMarcus Milliner*, CB, Alabama

Height: 6-1. Weight: 182.
Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
Projected Round (2013): Top 10.

1/31/13: Milliner's stock has been on the rise in January after a strong showing against the Fighting Irish to close out the season. Plus, he is clearly the top corner in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Milliner is fast and agile to be able to play on an island in man coverage. His shutdown ability is unique as he is fast enough to turn and run with receivers, but also has the size to defend big receivers. Milliner has great length and quarterbacks struggle to get passes by him.

Sounds like just what we need, unfortunately too many teams ahead of us will covet him also.

2. Johnthan Banks, CB, Mississippi State

Height: 6-2. Weight: 185.
Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
Projected Round (2013): 1.

Knee injury concerns here, but still projected as the #2. Like the height with this guy, but a little light IMHO.

3. Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington

Height: 5-11. Weight: 190. Arm: 30 5/8. Hand: 8 1/4.
Projected 40 Time: 4.42.
Projected Round (2013): 1-2.

Close enough to my preference for 6' minimum height for a CB. performed well in Senior Bowl.

4. Xavier Rhodes*, CB, Florida State

Height: 6-2. Weight: 215.
Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
Projected Round (2013): 1-2.

Probably a stretch in the 1st round. Like the height, and weight with this guy though. If we could some how manage a second round pick this guy would be worth a look.

5. Logan Ryan*, CB, Rutgers

Height: 6-0. Weight: 190.
Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
Projected Round (2013): 1-2.

I like this guy.

6. David Amerson*, CB, N.C. State

Height: 6-3. Weight: 194.
Projected 40 Time: 4.46.
Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

The real problem for Amerson in 2012 was that he often caught gambling with his coverage and, consequently, gave up a number of scores. Amerson was very vulnerable to double moves. His stock has fallen dramatically since last year.

Nope, sounds too familiar.

7. Will Davis, CB, Utah State

Height: 5-11. Weight: 182. Arm: 31 1/4. Hand: 8 3/8.
Projected 40 Time: 4.53.
Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

Someone to watch.

8. Leon McFadden, CB, San Diego State

Height: 5-9. Weight: 193. Arm: 31 1/4. Hand: 9 3/4.
Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

Too short for my taste. Would still be better than what we currently have.

9. Jordan Poyer, CB, Oregon State

Height: 5-11. Weight: 182. Arm: 30 5/8. Arm: 9 1/2.
Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
Projected Round (2013): 2-4.

Had knee injury in 2012, and a big reason why I prefer heavier CBs.

10. Jamar Taylor, CB, Boise State

Height: 5-10. Weight: 180. Arm: 29 3/8. Hand: 9 3/8.
Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
Projected Round (2013): 2-4.

11. Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, Connecticut

Height: 6-0. Weight: 192. Arm: 32 1/2. Arm: 8 3/4.
Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
Projected Round (2013): 2-4.

12. Terry Hawthorne, CB, Illinois

Height: 6-0. Weight: 190.
Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
Projected Round (2013): 2-4.

I like this guy.

13. Tharold Simon*, CB, LSU

Height: 6-2. Weight: 193.
Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
Projected Round (2013): 2-4.

The LSU homer in me likes this one also.

I would hope we had addressed this need by now, so won't go any further down the list.
