    Unless they're completely inept, you don't, as an organization, play this kid at safety for a year or two, with plans to move him to CB upon Tillman's departure. Pick GD position and stick to it.

    let me amend my prev statement, QB is the one position that imo doesn't have to start year 1, but all other positions should be starting.

    I agree Ric. Maybe Ward or Bucanon will be there @ 51.

    Kind of how I see it too, but we did need a CB and I think he will be good. We did need a CB, but I'm not sure that he will play much this year. We already have a pretty good CB corp. But he should be a major contributor next year if Peanut leaves. I guess we are betting he does. I would rather have gone with a position that would have contributed and upgraded our team immediately. That's what I look for a 1st pick to do.

    Pryor just went to the Jets, so I really hope Emery had him rated properly.

    Welcome to Chicago Kyle.

    I agree. If he doesn't start somewhere this year, I think it is a questionable pick.

    I like it, I suspect he will be the nickel corner, I think another cb is coming to be FS. Possibly Aikens in rd 5, which is position he played first 2 yrs in college.

    You don't know that. Maybe Emery views the Safeties this year as deep and feels there is a bigger falloff at CB after the top few picks than there is at safety.

    I'm sure everyone would like to see a bona fide starter with the first pick but if they have Fuller pegged as their lock down CB for the next eight years, it makes all the sense in the world.

    Don't get me wrong, if Dix and or Pryor were off the Board I'd be all about this pick, but S was a bigger need then CB, and CB is far deeper then S. So grabbing one of the top S's was a better option then grabbing a NOT best CB.

    Track, this is just a trend I'll have to get used to w/Emery I know he doesn't give a *blank* and is going to go w/his guy regardless of what lands on his plate that is a better option.

    But in no way is Pryor/Dix not a better option then Fuller at 14 when you have 0 starting quality S's on your roster and have 2 pro bowl CB's, even if it's only for a year.

    Well im sure he will see playing time in different packages this season, so he WILL see some field time, hopefully he produces in the limited chances he gets this year. If so, then this was a solid pick. If not? Then we seriously will start to question Emery's first round record, especially on defense.
