I've been back and forth as to who I think we should draft with our first pick, and I think I've finally settled. I've seen all the mocks, read the board, watched videos and have been glued to NFL Network so I feel I've done my due diligence; at least as much as an armchair quarterback can be expected to do. Based on our free agent acquisitions I feel this is a luxury pick in a way, I mean our biggest weakness have been addressed the way the FO felt was best... for better or for worse. The interior O-line has been beefed up, especially at guard and safety has been addressed with two guys who could start. We also got bigger up the middle with two huge bodies. The one area of weakness I see is at corner. Honestly McCourtey is, ideally, a #2 corner on just about any other team. Verner wouldn't be a starter on most teams as I see it, but we would clearly see the field in sub packages. This leads me to believe that corner is where we should go with our first pick. Not only is it a clear area of need but drafting 10th we should have a shot at the 2nd best corner in the draft or perhaps the top corner. I do feel that Geno Smith will not be a top 10 pick, I also think that Milliner will be taken in the top 9, so that leaves us with a few top guys: Desmond Trufant Xavier Rhodes Jonathan Banks Jamar Taylor and so on... Most, including myself don't see Banks or Taylor being first round picks, however Taylor may sneak into the bottom. This leaves me with Desmond Trufant and Xavier Rhodes. To me the answer is clear, with the 10th pick we should draft Xavier Rhodes, here's why. The guy is a day one starter at corner, which would push Verner to slot and sub packages with is best for the defense anyway. I really like his size to be able to cover the Jimmy Grahams and Gronks of the league... 6'2", 217 and runs 4.4, that is perfect. The fact that he is a physical player really sets him up to cover tight ends and to possibly play safety which, lets be honest, despite the new additions would be a upgrade. So Rhodes offers us and upgrade at corner, the ability to play different coverages and may develop into an incredible safety, which personally I think may be his best position on the NFL. Anyway I'd like to hear who you all have settled on.
