Could we possibly put any more 1st round DB's on our roster? Seriously?


Our present defensive secondary is flooded with 1st round picks. It would be hard to imagine that we could squeeze any more in there even if we tried. Just imagine how much trading up we would have had to done over the last decade to acquire all the guys in our secondary who are former 1st round picks.....

Adam Jones...First Round...#6...2005

Jason Allen...#16...2006

Leon Hall...#18...2007

Nate Clements...#21...2001

Reggie Nelson...#21...2007

What's interesting is that our secondary is filled with 1st round picks, while our linebackers average being taken at round 2.4, and the defensive line averages at round 3.4.

So we actually are taking our starters in later rounds, the closer they play to the line of scrimmage....whcih is kind of backwards since you win up front, and one would expect that we would want our better players on the line. oh well.

DB: 1.2 = 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2 (Jones, Allen, Hall, Clements, Nelson, Mays)

LB: 2.4 = 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, ufa (Rivers, Howard, Maualuga, Moch, Muck, Skuta)

DL: 3.4 = 2, 3, 4, 4, 4 (Dunlap, Johnson, Atkins, Geathers, Peko)
