    I want Hunt in the second, but Banks is nice. I could take either or, but I still stand pat on Chance with the 10th pick.

    To be fair, the Milliner injury stuff could be a real cause for concern or it could be that he checked out just fine and now teams are trying to smokescreen him down the board a bit. I would just be really, really scared of using that high a pick on a guy who's already had three different major injuries.

    You do realize he will be 26 at the start of the season?

    I might be the only one who likes this kid but I hope Demontre Moore falls to us in the 2nd round.....

    I'd be very surprised if he wasn't there for our second. I'm indifferent on him he seems very boom or bust. He is kind of like Werner right now really good stats but workouts show less than ideal explosion.

    Moore is still 20 years young, and moved to defensive end this year from the rush 3-4 linebacker spot. He is still learning the position, he has the frame to add weight on in the NFL. Workout numbers could keep teams away letting another good player fall into the second round.

    One of those picks where I won't jump for joy, nor would I throw my beer at the TV.

    CB are as good as their front 7. We still need a playmaker on the DL to justify taking Milliner with the #10 pick.

    If we can somehow get a playmaker on the DL with our 2nd round pick, that would make the Milliner pick 10 times sweeter IMO.

    So just take the DL playmaker at 10 and CB in the second. I'm not sure milliner is somehow worth that much more than any other CB.

    I will be extremely pissed if we waste a top 10 pick on Milliner.

    Biggest endorsement for Milliner yet! Dunce Wayne doesn't like him!

    Now we have to draft him.

    Rustin Webster take note!

    You guys understand that every year there are CB prospects with gaudy workouts who end up as backups in the nfl?

    Justin king ran a 4.31 40 and was a 4th rd pick. He is a backup for his 3rd team. You are drafting a football player not a track guy. A CB needs to have instincts, ball skills, and be able to tackle.

    Yes guys like Slay and Amerson had stellar workouts but you have to look a the total package. I like both players but they are not comparable with Milliner who is a complete player.
