No particular reason why I would ask this...
But the title pretty much says it all - what do the NFL-bound CBs look like for this year?
DON'T LEAVE US DONOVAN WARREN!
Crap, couldn't hold it in.
But IE crashed about four times and I gave up...
here are some of the names coming up on mock drafts
DB: Berry (Tenn) Mays (USC) Haden (Fla) Arenas (Ala) Lindley (U-K) Dowling (UVa) Ghee (Wake) Cox (OkSt) Thompson (Cal) Lewis (Vandy) Jackson (Ala) Thurmond (Ore)
Where would Donovan fit in that group? I have no idea.
he just has to be kept out of the first 4 rounds or so in order to come back. Looks like there's enough talent out there to keep him in AA. Fingers crossed.
Is if he's willing to be a 3rd round draft pick, he is gone...
Berry, Mays and Haden will all be off the board in the first round. (Although Mays is def and Berry likely a safety in the NFL) People have varying estimations of Lindley and Arenas as late first rounders / early second rounders.
I even found one mock draft that had Warren in the 1st round, 12th overall. (walterfootball.com) Before you climb out on that ledge, the same site has Ryan Mallett as going 7th overall.
any mock draft with Warren as a first-rounder. No way. But, credit where it's due, he could go 3-4th round as a Junior. I think he could improve his stock significantly by coming back. He may even get some safety help for once next year and have some shots at some picks.
and he was on the board in the third round, it wouldn't take me long to get my pick up to the podium. I think a YMRMFSPA of Leon Hall in the NFL is appropriate (Who went 17 or 18th overall after his senior year) I see him as a first rounder next year.
Alot of the aforementioned DB's aren't seniors this year (see Eric Berry, Dowling, Joe Haden) so I guess it really depends on how they choose. Face it guys, he had a GREAT season, just not statistically, and that's mainly because the offense kept picking on either Woolfolk, Floyd, Cissoko, or the safeties. They just didn't look his way that much this year, because he is a GREAT SHUTDOWN CORNER. It's a little early to pull the "Turner is GOD" card, but I have to think that he's an upgrade on whoever they threw in at the opposite corner position this year. If he sticks around another year, I have no doubt that scouts see him playing an integral part on a shutdown D next year (come on guys, with a secondary like Warren, Turner, Woolfolk, and Williams/Kovacs/Emilien how could we be as bad?!) and he gets propelled into 1st round status. What I'm trying to get at here is
PLEASE STAY DONOVAN! PLEASSEEE!
