There are 4 words banned from this fanpost... brandon, graham, earl, and thomas... moving along
I was really hoping we were going to again move up, packaging 37 + late/futures, to get into the end of round 1 and grab Kyle Wilson... unfortunately we didnt and then my hopes moved to Patrick Robinson dropping to us at 37 without us having to make any moves... unfortunately he didnt. With the top 5 cornerbacks off the board the eagles are left in a very difficult position, while we desperately need a CB2 i think we are actually pretty deep at nickel (and to a lesser extent even dime) CB. I think Joselio Hanson and/or Ellis Hobbs are both quality players and you really cant ask for much more at the nickel spot (unless you are rex ryan).
The players that are left on the board I view as either better suited to be a nickel CB (arenas), players who I just didnt research (franks, cox), or players that (to me) appear to be gimmicks (cook - height, Owusu-Ansah - return ability). Either way I think any of these players are going to have a very hard time stepping in day 1 and taking the starting role opposite of Assante.
At this point does it start making more sense to be calling other teams and seeing who might have a starting CB available with some actual experience?? I think our number one target would have to be Carlos Rogers of the Redskins. I live in DC and ive seen the ups/downs of this guys career, he cant catch a ball to save his life but he is a great cover guy. Ive seen him completely shut down Larry Fitzgerald. Rogers has worn out his welcome in DC and I am surprised he is still even in town. Only issue is the skins are so poor in the secondary we would have to include another CB in return because they dont have ANYONE else other than deangelo hall. Would Hobbs/Hanson and a 4th be too much?
Who else have you guys heard might be available?? Am I wasting my time when I should be looking into some of the 2n3/3rd round prospects I missed??
