    Hoo, boy, I don't know. Probably a CB, but I've not been paying any attention to prospects beyond CB so I don't know them. Probably because we still really need one.

    I wasn't to enamored with this CB class back in Jan. I don't get to watch a lot of college ball and what I had seen it look to be Surtain, then a gap, then Horn and Farley then a big gap.

    But as I see more, and draft season highlights more guys and workout progress I was way off the mark. This is a deep class for CB to the point where I think there a very good guy there if we trade back in round 1, or even wait until round 2.

    So much so I'm wondering is CB at #16 would be smart. If the drop off to a CB in round 2 is much smaller than say, the drop off with a TE, then it's not wise to go with CB in round 1.

    For example, would you rather have Jaycee Horn and Brevin Jordan or Kyle Pitts and Ifeatu Melifonwu (big fan)?

    My personal option would be a small trade back, pick up and extra 2nd. Take Greg Newsome in round 1, then Brevin Jordan and Ifeatu Melifonwu in round 2. Double dip at CB.

    Would be a great plan but i think more then adding a second cb they would draft a pass rusher

    I'm good with this!!! He's a PIECE, granted a damn good one, but the secondary is far from a finished product. He's a pro, and he's got some dog in him, frankly something the secondary has lacked since DJ Swearinger (the good times) and Tony Jefferson. Kudos!

    You realize "1st" in this context means the most, for targets and receptions, right? As in he had the most targets of any CB in the NFL and gave up the most receptions?

    And there are lies, damn lies and statistics.

    Those numbers simply do not tell the whole story about the Titans defence and the role he played.

    Yet still 4% less than P2. With far less yards per and a much lower passer rating allowed.

    Looking at his stats I would guess the scheme he was in allowed short completions, but relied on coming up and making the tackle. Between his stats and your post that would make a lot of sense.

    Still gave up just as many TDs and way more yardage.

    It's fine though, I don't want to stand on a soapbox about Malcolm Butler. I think he'll provide just about what we got last year out of PP21 in a different style, and he's cheaper. It's not the end of the world.

    P2 thinks he's done enough for us to retire #21.

    Pfff.

    If you notice, there was no "Goodbye Arizona" post from PP21.

    He is a guy that I won't look back on fondly, like I did with Aeneas Williams and other Cardinals greats. It has always been about Patrick Peterson and Patrick Peterson only. His inflated ego and sense of self worth have trumped his level of play for awhile.

    I wager that the Cardinals didn't even offer Peterson a contract based on Keim's answer during his FA press conference.
