There's 4 different positions to spend a possible 1st round pick on.
My replies would be
1- Carter doesn't stink, but he's a 3rd or 4th corner at best. Champ played horrid and seemed to sort of lack a lot of fire in that game. I was surprised I thought he would be ready to rock n roll and get to the Superbowl. You can't have enough corners so IMO they are always a target.
2- How that play took place was the epitome of being soft. CB let guy run right buy him, Moore not deep enough. All because they played soft and the coaches coached soft.
3-Our interior oline even when healthy is still a little soft in short yardage. With Kuper banged up interior oline seems to be the most logical spot on offense to expect a high draft pick.
4-Doom and Miller vanished and also had offisides. Just a bad showing by defense overall.
