Why I Believe Oakland Should Go Corner In The 2nd


 With Routt starting on one side Oakland still has has to address the other corner position , I like Jhonson , but he took a step backwards last year , loosing his job to Routt . Ware and Mc Fadden struggled , Oakland cant risk being exposed at one corner and not have a solution for the rest of the year .

 Where we pick in the second I believe there will still be two maybe three corners with the type of man skills it takes to play in Oakland. After the 2nd I just don't see a man cover corner that could step in , start ,and become a solid shut down corner right away. Oakland can get a player to team up with Routt for the next couple years and have a solid cb tandem.

  

 I believewe can find gaurds , tackles , centers , a developmental tight end , running backs , and a free saftey in the middle rounds , but after the 2nd i just don't see a corner who would be able to come in and compete for a starting role .

 When Oakland picks at 48 its a given Peterson-LSU , Amukamara-Neb , and Harris-MI , will be gone. Most likely Smith-co , and Williams-Tx will be gone , though Smith seems to be dropping for some reason , as much as i'd like to think he may drop to us , hell be gone , and i think Dowling-Virginia will also be off the board.

  Here are the corners with man coverage skills that i think will be ther at 48...........

  Jhonny Patrick 6' - 190 - Louisville-46 tackles 12 pbu, 5 int , is being compared to Vonte Davis has good cover and recovery skills , hes a starter who dropped out of the 1st over an assault charge .  

  Davon House 6' -185-New Mexico st , may be the best fit for the style of play oakland likes to play , he is a pure  press man coverage corner didnt originally think he would go this high , hes climbing since the combine , though 48 may be a little high , I dont think he'll fall to Oak in the 3rd.

   After these two its mostly zone corners, a couple off coverage corners , though there are some developmental guys like skrines we have a couple developmental guys, we need somebody who has a chance of being ready to start if Jhonson continues to slide.
