You realize that Cromartie and Talib were two entirely separate draft classes, right? Talib was in the same class as Cason... he also was (and really still is) a pure zone corner - great short area quickness but he doesn't have the length or strength to play on an island and defend a full sideline. If you'd have said you wanted Brandon Flowers (which I did, and I'm not just saying that to get back on Buck's good side because Flowers is a Hokie), I might have bought that... he was who I wanted over Cason. As to Cromartie, we went with the slightly riskier pick that had greater upside in Cro over Jonathan Joseph - and don't doubt that a good deal of influence in making that decision came from Wade (who had always had AJ's ear). I really don't consider it much of a coincidence that when Wade left and was replaced with Milktoast Teddy that there was also a distinct Charmin-like quality that crept into Cro's play. or that once we had a DC who wasn't a pushover that Cro was traded. Also, Cromartie had one injury in college, a torn ACL. If that's all it takes for you to classify a player as injury "prone" then you, sir, need a new dictionary or some better functioning neurons. T'eo's going to be a player we very likely won't even have a shot at, to be honest, and not because he's anything great but because he'll work out exceedingly well (see Aaron Curry, Rolando McClain) and there are enough teams willing to bank on upside over polish in a wage-scale draft system. He won't be even 2/3 of the player Luke Kuechly will though, and he's got tons of size on Kuechly, so that's really saying something. And honestly, Manti better hope to God he doesn't get injured, because if he does, he won't go any higher than the 3rd round.
