    First off Bills fan and I come in peace....

    Its an insider article so I can't post the whole thing but here is the AFC East...as a fan of the Bills they are ranked WAY too low

    ESPN really has a bias against small market teams (Unless Brett Farve is behind center)

    The fact that ESPN mentions Jason Webster is a joke. As a Bills fan who watched Webster in training camp and preseason I will tell you he is garbage

    And something tells me if the Pats had drafted McKelvin their ranking would be inflated

    Personally I would have the Jets 12-15, Bills and Pats 15-20 and the Phins 20-25

    Jets 12-15? No way. Rhodes is it. Does Abram Elam ring a bell? Hank Poteat? Andre Dyson?

    Right, but he has a ways to go, and there's nothing opposite him or Rhodes.

    Re: ESPN DB rankings....

    Well, I'm ok with it. Like they care what a Unapologetic Patriot Homer from Atlanta via Holliston, MA thinks - But still, I'm ok with it.

    However, If they are shoveling the D. Hall crap for the Raiders, then they are nuts - Being in Atlanta and a football junkie, I was forced to watch that idiot play and he's BAD.

    Bills should have drafted Dominique-Rodgers Cromartie, McKelvin has no ball skills and DRC has elite ball skills. Plus hes faster, taller, more athletic...

    Pats secondary is still the best in the division.

    lol should I go with what Mike Mayock of NFL network thinks OR BRiZ from patsfans.com

    I'm taking McKelvin any day...and my guess is 29 other GMs would have as well (over DRC)

    Hank Poteat is awesome. Mangini stole him. If we'd had Hank, we might have beaten the Giants.

    DRC is better, its not even close really. Only reason he was ranked lower was because the small school he came from and kidney issue. DRC craps large eggrolls all over McKelvin. McKelvin is good and will be a good corner but DRC will be a shutdown elite corner.

    I agree with you. He can develop better ball skills. Great feet and speed. I def. think he was a safer pick than DRC.

    McKelvin has better hips, change of direction and acceleration on the field and he is a sure tackler

    I guess we will have to wait to see how they compare on an NFL football field but my money is on McKelvin....However, to say "its not even close really" is a joke and discredits your knowledge

    And for the record Troy isnt exactly a powerhouse either

    incorrect, DRC is about as smooth as they come, he has lightning quick feet for a guy his size. McKelvin is more physical that is it, but he lacks one vital thing that any CB needs to have, -ball skills-. What good is a corner that cant catch? Go watch Antonio Cromartie and how he snags anything out of the air, his cousin DRC is similar. DRC is a better athlete too.

    Once again you're wrong...it was a general consensus among scouting experts that McKelving had superior change of direction and fluid hips when compared to the other CB's

    McKelvin was subpar in the ball skills department but like a previous poster pointed out that can be taught

    Lets not forget how dominant he is in the punt return game...that is another advantage McKelvin had over DRC

    Oh and tell me who did TSU play? Who exactly did DRC "shutdown"

    Because McKelvin and Troy had Arkansas, Florida, OK state and Georgia on their schedule

    Did any of you guys see DRC at the combine? I knew then the Pats would never touch him in the first round. He wasn't all that impressive. McKelvin is the better corner.

    This thread makes me sad. I thought Leodis would be a Pat.
