You may want to re-word the poll question, it doesn't make any sense at the moment.

I hate to say it, but we probably won't know what "the Fonz" has until either Bailey or Goodman get injured. You have to remember that those guys played really well, so it's no surprise he couldn't beat either for a starting spot.

Nickel back is a change of position, and has a whole different set of assignments.

We won't know if he is a great Corner until he plays Corner.

14th pick.

I'm pulling for Alphonso, I still think he can be a player for us.

But the trade was always a suspect move, and that 14th pick could have landed us a stud interior O-Line player which we desperately need and freed us up to use #11 on the BPA.

I'm pretty sure he played 4 most of the year. They wanted him to be the nickle but he couldn't handle it.

He may turn out good at some point but that trade was horrible. Mid first rounders shouldn't be guys you plan to start in 4-5 years.

it's impossible to answer

what if Denver picks someone and reaches for them there...and we have to watch that guy develop instead of contribute immediately

then we are essentially a year behind where we are with Smith right now but for more money

I am staying with Smith, it's way too early to even think about this

The risk/reward for the trade looks right now like the risk won out. But, again... let's see where things are mid-season/end of season. I'm indifferent about the trade until I really know the results.

If we were drafting at 14, we still face the same risks with a young player that we faced with Smith.

It's a wait and see thing. Would be fun to have another pick, but I think Smith was an intriguing pick, himself. We shall see.

I would like to have the pick back and then have Alphonzo reenter the draft, and then pick him with the 14th pick. I think we just took him a year too early.

Hindsight is 20/20. I like Smith, but it is hard to argue against having #14 in this class.

Lets hope this is true. Then we got a first round pick a year early. If he does perform like that this year then we did allright. As of now I wish we had the pick back.
If wishes were dimes I'd be a friggin millionaire.

14th pick. Smith has a chance because it's takes most corners 3 years to adjust to the game.

I would really like to know if we stayed at the spot we were at would he have landed in our lap? Just imagine we could have two #1's and two #2's.

Anyone saying Smith is a true homer. Could of taken a better CB at 14 than Smith probably too. Smith may turn out into a player but he didn't show much last year.
