re: Xavier Rhodes

The key might be can you get Will Smith back cheap
If not, secondary could be where you have to go.
CB and S play has to get better.
Our recent CB's selected in draft have not panned out and the S are old.
LB were addressed last year in free agency.
OT is the only other option if someone good enough fell and if you lose Bushrod.

Both of CBs would be FSU boys. PrimeTime Jrs

re: Xavier Rhodes
Seen a lot of Rhodes, very physical at the line of scrimmage and is very athletic as the combine has shown. I would be fine with this pick at #15 if things don't go well in the draft for an explosive OLB as I don't trust DBs taken later in the draft anymore.

yeah. he'd be a better matchup against a Julio Jones or a Vincent Jackson that is for sure.

thinking Milliner was a poser.


he does have more speed than some of those other corners that Alabama has produced. I thought Dre Kirkpatrick was a better player coming out yet he was mid first round pick.

edit: where as we've seen Milliner projected as a top 5 pick. But now that I think about, Kirkpatrick may have been highly touted too. I can't remember.

I would be extatic if we got him! I do like the idea of trading back and grabing Slay.I saw Miss. State play and he played better than Banks to me. Would be a grat pick to trade down for.



He'll be there until early 3rd round.

At 15? Eh. If that's our pick I'd rather trade back and get a second out of it too


What team do you expect to give up their own 1st and second round pick for one 1st round pick?

re: Xavier Rhodes
Although Rhodes impressed by running very fast (In the 4.4’s according to scouts I spoke with) for such a tall cornerback, he did not work-out well today. He was choppy in his movements and struggled turning/changing directions. His workout made it look like he will struggle playing in “off” coverage at the next level. In addition, he showed terrible hands during the workout, which could well be the reason he is playing cornerback and not receiver. Additionally, his interviews were not overly impressive. - See more at: LINK

well since he is a bigger more physical that seems like it could be a problem. He's more of a bump-and-run specialist from what I've read.
