With Malcolm Jenkins staying in school, if we decided to reach for a CB at #7 would you rather have Cason or Mike Jenkins? The only time I saw Mike Jenkins play was at the bowl game and he did not look very good to me, so I would lean toward Cason. I think that even Jack Ikegwuonu could be a better CB than Mike Jenkins but Ikegwuonu could probably be gotten in Round 2 of the draft.

From what I've been reading about the cb's in the draft. It seems like there are a bunch of good ones. But,no great ones. That's why I want my pass rusher in the 1st round. Because the dropoff to a pass-rusher in the 2nd round is probably a pretty big drop. Where as we can get a cb in rd 2, especially if we trade up who isn't much different than the top ones.
The point made concerning there being a number of talented CB's in this years draft is true, and I'd actually like to see NE draft two CB's within the first 4 rounds.
Also, I'll take Cason over Jenkins, if NE's making the pick.
I've seen the rankins, and I could really care less, as I think for myself, and go by what my own eyes tell me. Cason has ball hawking ability, and can be a playmaker at CB in the pros. That being said, I'd only expect Cason's selectiong coming after a trade down, as NE won't be in any hurry to "reach".

No comparison between the two. Cason KNOWS how to play the position, as he's been a CB since Pop Warner. Does he have enough speed to play at the NFL level seems to be the only concern at this time. I think he does, noting that Law and Samuel weren't exactly burners either, yet both have been technically sound players w/ excellent ball skills -- like Cason.
That said, #7 seems a bit early for ANY CB, as there are other CB options later on. Like others here, I prefer an edge rusher with our first pick -- hoping for a trade down.
"What we want to try to do is maximize each spot on the roster; we want to be stronger at No. 1 than the opponent, stronger at No. 25 than they are, and stronger at No. 53 than they are, we're always looking to upgrade the talent level on the team, and play together to be functional."
