    Michael Turner, Jamal Lewis, Derrick Ward, Chris Brown, Julius Jones... There are a lot of Running Backs available who could do well in a committee situation.

    Randall *** is a UFA and he is a former Patriot would fit nicely in Smith's scheme at CB. It would be insurance in case Chris Houston doesn't improve.
    Ken Hamlin and Gibril Wilson are intriguing Safeties.
    Eh. His best fit is under tackle, even if he can play all of the positions on the line. I think somebody bigger would be better, and if we wanted a player like him then Pat Sims from Auburn in round two is a clone.

    I like Turner and Ward, they are the only ones who I think have the mix of youth and talent we need.

    *** is very overrated, he gets beat every game I watch him play.

      Even if you don't like ***, who is Atlanta's NCB right now?

          How so? He didn't really do anything last year, he was a 6th round draft pick... I am not sold on him yet at the NCB position, especially as the only real depth behind Hall and Houston (who hasn't proven jack either..).

            irons and houston played badly last season. period. how can you tell a player is promising when they're drawing dumb penalties and houston seems to get lost when trying to cover a legitimate receiver. sure he did get picked on because dhall was on the opposite side, but i expected better performances from him.

              You can expect better from rookies, and have outlandish expectations, but I don't. Irons is very promising...there's a reason he won SEC DB of the year...over our beloved Houston. Houston had one incredible game, and he showed that he has the ability to play in the league...Irons played well on ST and has plenty of promise.

                I think CB is a very underrated need. I think DeAngelo Hall leaves in the next few years, and we really don't have a nickel. Hard to address that positon with so many immediate needs, though.

                  I think Hall will be here for another 5 year deal...but that's just my guess.

                    Houston showed great promise towards the end of the season. David Irons is nothing more than a dime back. We desperately need a nickel back, preferentially from the free agent pool.

                      He got destroyed by Torry Holt and Anquan Boldin.

                        2 of the best WRs in the NFL...okay...darn...shucks...I expected him to have 17 interceptions in those 2 games. I mean those 2 WRs are just scrubs and haven't been in the NFL long at all.

                          Houston had his moments of weakness, but any rookie who gets that much exposure is going to struggle at times. He's got elite speed, and seems to have pretty good hips. He needs to improve his awareness, and learn how to play the ball better, but he will have learned a huge amount from his first season.

                          Most importantly, he showed the mental strength necessary for a cornerback, being picked on time and time again (because of Hall), and never getting disillusioned.

                            Umm...darn...shucks he said he improved vastly over the last few games. I don't don't care who he got abused by, 297 yards and three TDs in two games is horrible.

                            I think he can be good, but he had a bad rookie year.

                            Will you just stop quoting or commenting on my posts? If you can't handle an arguement then stop trying to start them.

                              Houston has the speed to keep up with just about every WR in the NFL and he also very physical but I think we all know he needs to work on his ball hawking skills hopefully our new coaching staff can help him out on that.

                                Can't handle an argument? Who can't? I just point out what you're saying vs facts...you're the one who resorted to name calling etc.
