Trae and Xavier are boundary corners, Alexander is a nickel

Thanks for the video Klomp, he's definitely very confident, why did he fall so much?? "Best corner in this class". Sounds like he understands the game and studies film hard. Hope he's the steal of the draft!

WEAKNESSES Shorter than teams like for cornerbacks outside and will have his hands full with NFL size outside. When bailing in coverage, needs to make sure to stay within play range of wide receiver. Can get too caught up in trash ­talking. Production numbers lower than expected. During two­-year stint with Clemson had no interceptions and just ten total passes defensed. Relies on reactive quickness over quality footwork. A little frenetic opening up from press coverage and could struggle against a crafty, NFL release until he gains more experience.

the not having any interceptions shouldn't really scare us off too bad, we did deal with chris cook for a few years

Played tackle in college, but practiced as a guard during the senior and that will be his position moving forward. Very athletic, but PFF has him rated as their 112th OT out of 113. Has some technique things to work on too. Seems like a reach, but given some time he could definitely be a starter. I trust our staff to coach him up, but it reminds me an awful lot of David Yankey.

I trust Sparano more than Davidson

couple more trades

• Traded their sixth-round No. 196 overall pick and their seventh-round No. 240 overall pick to the Eagles for their sixth-round No. 188 overall pick (drafted David Morgan).

Here's the TE we drafted. Will probably get a Kleinsasser/Ellison role
