    My theory on CBs is completely the opposite of 5-tech DEs and Guards......its go big or go home. It is a truely EXPOSED position, no weakness can go unnoticed because of the scheme you play. Its the hardest defensive position to play, you have to be intelligent, have great spatial awareness, athletic to the extreme, and at the same time not become a liability when the offense runs the ball. Its the only position on defense where if you screw up 1 play you can lose the game for your team.

    Thats not to say you can't find a 3rd/4th round gem, but nearly all of them fall there for a reason that doesn't just dissapear in the NFL. So if we're going CB with the intention to replace Jammer we should do it in the 1st round, maybe the 2nd if a Brandon Flowers like player slips.
