    Rhodes or Truffant in the 1st?

    Been reading a lot lately that the cornerbacks in our system need to be very good playing zone. Other defenses rely on man-to-man corners (this is why Sean Smith was allowed to walk - he's a good M2M and just an average zone guy). I guess the big difference is quickness and reaction time as opposed to straight line speed?

    With that said, What type of CB is each of these guys?

    I'm guessing now but this is how I read the CBs (Someone please correct me if I'm wrong here):

    Dee Milliner - Man to Man
    Desmond Truffant - Man to Man
    Xavier Rhodes - Zone
    Jordan Poyner - Zone
    Jonathan Banks - Zone
    Robert Alford - ?
    Blidi Wreh-wilson - Zone
    Tyrann Matthieu - ?
    DJ Hayden - ?
    Darius Slay - ?
    David Amerson - ?
    BW Webb - ?

    I would love to draft Rhodes (1), Alford (3a) and Matthieu (4a).

    Neither. Sign Grimes and draft Herbal Badger in the 2nd.

    Rhodes has better measurable, but Trufant is the better player
    If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.

    I'm liking Trufant. Grimes apparently is coming off an ACL injury...anyone confirm this?

    I havent seen much of either but what Ive seen of Trufant I love. I'd take Trufant going from my limited exposure of the two players. Trufant just looks like a gamer. I wouldnt have a problem taking him 12th over Rhodes.

    Doesn't seem like philben's kind of guy, since it seems like he struggles to stop smoking the bush in order to have a successful career and make millions. 3rd rounder for me at best.

    Grimes was a high rated CB for Atl before he got hurt so if he checks out sign him. Bet he comes at a good price.

    i like filling all the holes now and drafting BPA for a change like the good teams do.

    My guess would be Xavier Rhodes. Jeff Ireland likes his CB's built like Rhodes. Height: 6-2. Weight: 210.

    I disagree with the assessment from the OP. Rhodes is a physical man to man guy while Trufant is a better zone player.
