Looks like Mike Jenkins is the new Laurinaitis
yeah, they both got abused in their bowl games. Thank God Laurinaitis returned to tOSU for another year. lol
Jenkins may be the best CB... but I think it's a reach for need. If BB drafts Jenkins at #7 it's because he thinks he'll be way better than I do.
Wasn't Jenkins arrested last summer for a fight outside a bar???? What ever happened with that?
I think it is interesting that this guy has both the Jets and Dolphins taking 3-4 OLBs that can rush the passer.
I'm starting to think that if the Pats want to take CB they will trade down first. I just don't see a Champ Bailey/Charlse Woodson quality CB in the 08 draft.
I think taking a pass rushing OLB makes sense for those teams because they are in the same division as Tom Brady. If you can pressure the QB, that makes the secondary's job easier.
We've done fine with mid round CB, Samuel was a #4, Hobbs a #3, Gay a UDFA. That doesn't eliminate a CB in round one for sure but I don't think they'll be panicked to take one. In fact I'm clueless right now, I had said that RT could be upgraded, and it probably could, but Kaczur has been way more solid this year than I expected.
