Drafting a cornerback in the first round.

First of all before anyone gets their nose bent out of shape, I would prefer we did not draft a CB in the first round.
Will we?
Maybe...
I have seen a couple mocks with us taking Eli Apple.
Culliver is nursing his second ACL tear and its probably going to be mid/late summer at absolute best to see him doing any serious cutting.
It would cost $3.75 million in dead cap to cut Culliver this offseason.
His suspension voided guaranteed money.

Apple could be a nice addition as he is one of the taller CBs in the draft.

Culliver stuff....

Re: Drafting a cornerback in the first round.

no thanks, sign a mid-level free agent CB. The early draft picks must be used on the front 7... preferably on the defensive line

What if McLoving thinks the next Revis is available at our pick?

BPA every round, every pick. If we have good depth at the position, trade a guy or cut a guy and use the money elsewhere.

The notion we pass on the next Jonathan Ogden because we have a right tackle on the rise and the best tackle in the league is silly. (Just an example.) Draft the next Ogden and trade Moses to Carolina.

It's the only way to have more talent than salary.

Seattle made it to back to back Superbowls and are still contenders because they used this strategy.

It would be awesome to the have the Seahawks issues with figuring out which guys to pay and which guys to let go because they drafted huge talent on the cheap. BPA gives them more talent than they can afford under the cap.

BPA is how a team gets into the position to have Seattle's problems.

Re: Drafting a cornerback in the first round.

Re: Drafting a cornerback in the first round.

I'd be fine with a CB.

At this point, Scott McL has shown he knows more about building football teams than I do.

I trust that if he picks a CB, then that must have been the highest rated player on his board and I value his board over any other talking head, talent scout.

Re: Drafting a cornerback in the first round.

Mayock now has Apple as the #4 rated CB.
Anyone think that four CBs will go in the first round?

It's possible, and it depends on whether teams have Jalen Ramsey listed as a CB or a Safety

Re: Drafting a cornerback in the first round.

If corner is BPA when we pick then go for it. Even before Culliver was hurt he was not worth 8 million a year. He was not a shutdown corner by any means.

so do the Redskins use the escape clause in Culliver's contract and cut him ?

For me its not that complicated.
If a CB is the BPA in the 1st we should draft them.

I don't get the reasoning behind not wanting to draft a certain position IF they are the BPA.

Why? (actual question because im curious how other people view the draft)

The only caveat I have 4 best player available isn't really a caveat. But best player available applies not only to the drafted prospect but to the players on your own team. Meaning if the player you have on your team is better than the player that's available in the draft then that player cannot be the best player available because he's not better than the player that you currently have. But for me that is the only caveat the best player available.

It means we have popular solutions to other questionable spots on the defense.
So we can "afford" to take a CB in the first round.

At this point I view the draft like a lot of others on the Warpath.
We need to pick defense in the first round.
The priority that lies therein is debatable, understandably so.
If we get a hot shit corner back then its all cool.

So if we draft Eli Apple I wont yell WTF in my living room when we make the pick and my wife will scold me.
