    I think if McGill is there he is the S, I wouldn't touch a S in this draft out of the top 4; now it's time to look for a CB who can play S.

    Perhaps it's just you who's never heard of them. They were widely talked about on this board if you paid attention and weren't whining about conte every 3 seconds.

    Charles Tillman is going to cover Johnson...not a mid round safety who might not play.

    Ya none of the remaining S's are going to cut it in the NFL, I would like McGill if he's there, b/c he could be a SS imo

    Fuller is going to play nickle (to start) and then replace Tillman at CB when he gets hurt. That's already a given. If they draft a DB in the coming rounds, I'll take a CB with safety experience if they don't get a true FS.

    When Megatron gets past Tillman, I want a safety with the speed and jumping ability to cover. That is not Conte.

    I am going to be watching Southward and Brooks this year to see what Emery missed in the draft. You guys just take it for granted that these guys can't play even though earlier I heard that it was 50/50 with QBs and safeties. He seems to take that approach with DL but not safety. The longer this drags out, the more I think Emery is satisfied with Conte starting at FS. I did "search" for name Feguson on the board. His name comes up here and there, but I didn't find people clamoring to take him (or Sutton).

    Bears just drafted a RB in 4th round. We don't need a RB, and if we ever do, you can have just about anybody you want next year in the draft. I think it went 50 picks this year before the first RB was taken, and 37 picks the year before!

    Completely untrue. I live in Arizona and I can tell you that Sutton was a beast DT for ASU in his jr year (one of the best interior DL in college football). He was reportedly told to add weight and when he did he lost some of his quickness causing his production to suffer last season. He's back to where he should be at 290-295 for the 3T position. With the proper training of an NFL strength and conditioning program, I see him as a tremendous value in the 3rd.

    The safeties drafted right after the 1st round run weren't good values IMO for day 2. Know you hate Conte (a bit irrationally) but chill a little bit.

    I'm may be the only one but I'm loving this draft. Five picks, five potential starters. The only pick that threw me off a bit was the Freguson pick. But after looking at some of his tape, the dude is big, powerful & athletic. He's just raw & that's where our "new & improved coaching staff" comes in. If , & I know it's a big if, all these picks reach their potential, I think this draft will turn out to be our best draft in several years.
