    Cornerback Situation

    Currently at the CB position we have : Ron Bartell, Bradley Fletcher, Al Harris, Justin King, Jerome Murphy, Mikail Baker, Tim Atchinson, Dionte Dinkins, Tae Evans, and Jeremy McGee.

    Bartell, Harris and Fletcher are the only locks to make the team in my opinion (Jerome Murphy on IR or PUP). That leaves many spots open, and who will step up and grab one?

    Dinkins and Atchinson played good week 1 vs. the Colts. McGee stepped in too and had a nice breakup near the endzone covering the WR like a blanket.

    I think at the end we will have : Bartell, Fletcher, Harris, Baker, Atchinson, Dinkins.

    Who are your choices?

    Re: Cornerback Situation

    I chose Bartell, Fletcher, Harris, King, Baker, and Dinkins.

    Bartell, Fletch, Harris, and even King (barring injury) are locks IMO. Baker has to prove himself in game first, and Dinkins plays Spags ball and has the right size for Spags CB's. Another name not inlcuded here is Marquis Johnson who, I think, could possibly make this team over Baker or Dinkins if he comes off PUP anytime soon. Mcgee, Atchison, and Evans all are PS possibilities.

    You're right, I forgot about Marquis Johnson. But yeah as you mentioned he is on PUP. I really like Atchinson and Dinkins.

    I like Atchinson too and McGee as well, but do you think either of them make the 53 over Baker or perhaps a healthy Marquis Johnson? I could easily see it happening if they flash enough in preseaon and camp and stay healthy, but as it stands now I think of the UDFA's Dinkins has the most potential to make the final roster.

    I honestly think both Dinkins and Atchinson make it. Johnson as of right now needs to become healthy. I like Baker so I think hes in too. It'll be hard having 3 rookies back there so I am not 100% on Atchinson and Dinkins both making it. Though as of right now King has been nothing but injured and under performing for 3 years.

    Re: Cornerback Situation

    I really think (hope) they'll find someone among other teams' roster cuts to fill in as a 3rd or 4th cornerback. Al Harris has some veteran savvy and has looked good in practice, but does he have enough gas in the tank to hold up all season? Justin King has been uninspiring.

    I only voted for 4 (Fletcher, Bartell, Harris, King). Tae Evans could be a darkhorse.

    Re: Cornerback Situation

    I heard Dinkins name a few times in the game, maybe it was him being injured though.? Atchison played O.K.?
    A little early to tell, the Rams may sign another when the cuts have been made.?

    Re: Cornerback Situation

    Of all the team "parts" the secondary is the biggest mystery to me. I'm a trench guy and honestly when there's a big play I see which lineman or linebacker gets beat and the backfielders are invisible to me and aren't there. I'm watchin the refs arms go up and I'm usually throwin stuff.
    I'm the guy that walks up after the argument's started.

    Re: Cornerback Situation

    Hope Tae Evans makes it as a wildcard, seems i selected the same as everyone else except him.

    Tom Brady? This guy who was drafted in the 5th round... What do the Pats see in this kid?


    Moral of the story, don't underestimate the potential of some late round draft picks.

    As of right now, he is battling to be a starting corner here (Nickel). He has excellent speed and can also return kicks. He is in my opinion a lock to make the roster.
