    I'd rather have a lock down CB than a solid safety. I get that CB isn't the biggest need THIS year but drafting isn't about the short term. You want the guy that is going to help your team for the long term.

    I wanted Donald and Pryor was my 1B. But I understand why Phil did this, especially if he had Fuller rated very high.

    Like was mentioned, its not the best pick, its not the worst pick either. I understand why he did it. Its just frustrating since BOTH of the top safeties were still available.

    If Fuller isn't a starting S this year it was a bad pick.

    I wouldnt go THAT far, but if he isnt starting by next year, it definitely calls the pick into question, especially if Pryor and/or Dix are starting this year.

    no, your first pick has to be starting on the field.

    Again this makes me think that Emery doesn't pay attention to how the draft is falling, he has his guy and will go w/that guy regardless of who falls to him, and if that guy that falls fills a real need.

    I love the pick! You are free to feel how you want but I have confidence people will like him. A lot of people have mentioned Kyle as rated higher than both the safeties. He'll be on the field!

    Your first pick does not HAVE to start. Especially when he is specifically drafted to become the eventual starter behind an all-pro like Tillman.

    In any case, he very well could be starting in the Nickel this season.

    ya actually you lose a year of your first pick if he's not starting, that's wasteful. At that point its picking luxury(not having them start) over a necessity(a player that could have started).
