    They are? By whom?

    Dorsey... sure, he's the best DT, but his injuries a concern.

    I haven't seen anyone rank Talib as the top CB.

    And Kelly... maybe a few months ago, but not since he ran a 4.68 in the 40 and than moaned that it was his school's fault for changing the surface he was timed on.

    Talib was mentioned as the best corner by some. Kiper had him there, McShay probably did, and countless others who have since changed their minds eight thousand times.

    Kelly's still up there as the best receiver to a lot, more than Talib is the best corner now. You know he could be the first one taken.

    Greater needs and equal value elsewhere.
    You're right, it kinda makes this whole set up arbitrary not knowing how the picks before it played out. If there's a top tackle or defensive end still on the board and we take Talib then it's probably a bad pick. Where as, if both groups of linemen are out... it's all relative. It should probably be a mock draft that SLOP would crucify Linehan over, but whatever.
