    Don't worry so much about rh.....the talking heads at one point thought Ryan Leaf was a good selection

    Re: Starting Corner draft pick

    Tye Hill is going to be one of those cornerbacks whose side you dont want to throw too

    for example not many QB's throw to champ baileys side...

    I see Tye becoming like that

    Including the separate batch for McCollum and Timmerman?

    Nice, haven't heard that one before.

    I don't remember what the analysts were saying last year at the time of the pick, but I know Pacman benefitted from A LOT of hype from Mel Kiper. He was pretty much a mid to late first round pick that Kiper talked up into the top ten, IMO. Most fans I heard from elsewhere thought Jones at that point in the draft (over Rolle and even Rogers to an extent) was a reach.

    Re: Starting Corner draft pick

    I think the difference between Jones and Hill is (as ramhard pointed out) was Jones return experience and Jones is supposed to have better hands. However, Jones was a chemistry problem right out of the gate on a team that DOES NOT allow chemistry problems. And even with his "better" hands, he managed a grand total of ZERO picks last year and fumbled 5 returns.

    So bottomline (other than what a gamble the draft is), Hill can be every bit as successful, if not more, than Jones.
