    Regardless of where the pick where actually take place – seeing as we may move down.

    Update: Hmm, thought I was in the draft forum, move as desired.

    I'll take Jenkins. Rodgers-Cromartie isn't a sure fire elite NFL corner. Talib has a marijuana problem. McKelvin is pretty good, but Jenkins is better.

    I just voted Leodis McKelvin because I respect Mike Mayock's opinion on this subject more than my own. But I just watched some tape and an interview of Mike Jenkins, and that kid is impressive. So, if I had to choose just one of these guys at this point, Id probably go with Jenkins. He's a ballhawk who's used to locking down on guys with return skills. And like I said, his interview was very impressive. A great attitude.

    Chevis Jackson from LSU would be a solid second day pick. Wouldn't mind Z from Notre Dame either.

    do you guys actually think that Cason is a better corner than Cromartie? Or are you basing your decision on getting Cason in round 2 and a LB in round 1? Hopefully you are talking about Cason in round 2...

    From what I've read here, it wouldn't surprise me if people actually believe that Cason is a better corner than DRC straight up, never mind where they are picked. Crazy.................

    The CB's I actually "want the most"?

    1. Antoine Cason: He's my favorite CB in the draft for the Patriots, and I think he would play at a high level within their system. He should also be available with a trade down in the first, so he has a little more value in that regard, too.
    2. Brandon Flowers: The only question that needs to be asked is if you watched him play? The kid dominated at the highest levels, plays tough, is really physical (patters that portion of his game after Rodney), and has some versatility.

    Briz can call me nuts, but I just don't think DRC is the best CB in the draft (especially for NE), and I don't think he'll live up to Antonio's level. also, most of you guys never actually watched DRC play a real college game. Cason actually put up better performances, while playing against a much tougher level of competition. I think DRC has a lot of potential, but he also has question marks, and I think he's going to get over drafted by someone.

    I'd like to see them take Antonie Cason with an early pick and then Jonathon Zennon (LSU) or Charles Godfrey (Iowa) in the later rounds.

    Spot on, no one on this board had even mentioned DRC until the NFL Network went all nuts over him because of his Senior bowl performance. I highly doubt anyone was watching many Tennessee State games this season on here....:rolleyes:

    "Alex Marvez, of FOXSports.com, reports Tennessee State CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has had his draft stock soar since January and may become the first defensive back selected in the NFL Draft. Tom Shaw, of Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex, handled Rodgers-Cromartie's pre-draft preparation. Shaw has worked with 94 first-round draft picks and has compared Rodgers-Cromartie to former NFL star CB Deion Sanders. "I think Dominique is a Hall of Famer," Shaw said. "The way this kid can react to the football, the way he adjusts ... He's the best receiver I have in this camp. He's a kid that can do everything." "

    Or he could be the next Pacman Jones. Oh, yeah, he's also not a receiver. :)

    i honestly dont see why there is so much hype surrounding this guy. what has he done? he played division II ball where the competition is obviously inferior. i dont care what he did in the senior bowl. the only reason i see this guy getting attention is because he is fast/athletic and has the same name as a star CB on the chargers. regardless, i don't see him as a BB type-player. from what i've read he isn't that physical and needs to bulk up, and also doesn't have that great of a football IQ. i think intelligence is one of the most underrated aspects of the game. a lot of people want these very athletic guys who can fly up and down the field but i'd rather a smart and technically sound player that is versatile.

    Marvez used to work for papers in South Florida. I've read his stuff. He's an idiot. If he was saying DRC is the next Deion, I would tell you not to put any stock in it. However, if he's quoting somebody, there's a 50% chance that he quoted somebody correctly.

    Cason def. gets my vote. I love DRC's natural abilities and do think that he has a lot of potential. However, I think that Cason's a safer pick.

    Take a LB #7 and trade up to the top of the 2nd if Talib falls

    The real question is which CB projects the best in the Pats defense?

    My answer is in a perfect world where all CB's have equal character and are healthy is Wheatley of Colorado. Quick Twitch, speed, tackling and especially BALL SKILLS.

    The next closest fit might be Moulden.

    Cason has it all, except for the quick twitch.
