Anyway, looking at last year's top rated cornerbacks, here is how they fared at the combine.
(The 3-cone result for Dre comes from his pro-day, since he did not do the drill at the combine)
For comparison's sake, here is how the top 2013 cornerbacks performed:
Since the Bengals are seemingly in need of a safety, and there have been some who have suggested moving Dre to safety, here's how the 2013 safeties fared:
Dre's 40 time would put him near the bottom of the top CB's for 2013, but ahead of the top Safeties.
His 3-cone would put him on par with the faster o-linemen. Just kidding, but it's far worse than anybody on this list.
Dre's vertical jump & broad jump would put him in the lower half of the top prospects from 2013.
Since Dre missed all of 2012, he's essentially joining the Bengals as a 'rookie' in 2013. So with that in mind, would you still take him with a 1st round pick if he was coming out this year???
Based on the 2013 combine results, if Dre was in the 2013 draft...
I'd definately use a 1st round pick (our #21) on him (7 votes)
I'd grab him with our 2nd round pick from OAK, or trade down from #21, but not take him at #21. (46 votes)
I think he was in a weak class last year. This year, he'd be a round 2 guy at best. I'd use pick #53 on him at the highest. (37 votes)
He would eat chocolate chip cookies with me! (11 votes)
