Eli Apple is trash, man. He can't cover anyone. Dude's a liability and teams will throw right at him over and over again.

I'm sure that even S&B would agree with me about that.

I absolutely agree with you.

I didn't like him with the Buckeyes and I don't like him now. Terrible signing. WHY???

i don't know, bro. I don't know why the fuck we failed miserably to sign a single decent CB. WTF?

I'd rather have fucking Worley back, for God's sake.

We gotta chalk this one up as a failure by Gruyock.

Detroit just signed Trufant, and are shopping Slay. I think a third gets the deal done.
If not, Mayock is drafting CB at the #19 spot ....book it!

Start looking into the top 3 or 4 corners available. They each are decent, just going to take time adjusting. Which is why I want Slay so bad.

Darius Slay is going back and forth with Trayvon Mullen on twitter now. Hoping to wakeup to good news. He's very fluid, and at this point don't care if he's expensive. Like you, I don't like Eli Apple.
Chris Harris shined us on and went to LA, screw his ass!

Slay was traded for a 3rd and 5th to the eagles.
Damn.
Were most definitely going corner at #19.
I wanted our LB in Murray or Queen too. We can't depend on Marquel Lee to remain healthy all season.

I believe Quinton Dunbar is still available via trade w WAS. He's highly rated by PFF. He'll command decent cash and be worth it.

BTW, no fuckin' way we should have lost out on Slay with just a 3rd and 5th. That's a good fucking deal even for an older expensive dude who still has a good bit of great football in him. WTF are we doing, man??

Trayvon Mullen is coming into his own and showed flashes, but it would be kind of scary if were forced to start to rookies at CB this year. Eli Apple isn't the answer.
If Okudah falls past Detroit, he could slide all the way to the Jags' spot at say #9. We'd have to jump in front of the Jaguars while parting with one of our #3's. I doubt Mayock pulls the trigger on this, lots of talent in the 3rd round to be had.
So what's our next move?
If I'm Mayock, I'm pouring over my board and comparing NEED versus value. We know we NEED a corner, however what's to stop us from drafting the #1 safety in Xavier McKinney at #19?
The corner talent drop off between rounds 1-3 isn't a whole lot if you ask me. I've been looking at some these dudes for a few months now. Outside of Okudah, I see a lot of talent that'll take time to develop.
McKinney could come in and be a plug and play difference maker next to the thumper Abram for years to come. Kansas city's game isn't about beating you with man to man per say, they'll take the top off anybody while having the safeties pointing at each other. McKinney is as smart as they come, and has been sniffing out plays in Alabama for some time. He can cover the deep half of the field and hopefully be our Earl Thomas/ Kam Chancellor type combo.
Then in round 3, we pickup a CB , since the drop off isn't that much, start Eli Apple and see if Kasien Nixon takes the next step in camp. Let the best man win.
If we get Lamb at #12, we'll be hopefully winning with offense anyways.
What say you guys?
