    Time to start a CB thread.

    Whether Cam Sutton moves outside to replace Steven Nelson, OR if James Pierre/Justin Layne are Nelson's replacement , and Sutton stays primarily as the slot CB, the Steelers will need to add a CB in this year's draft.

    My personal favorite is Asante Samuel Jr. Can play the slot or outside CB role. OR maybe one of the many hybrid safety/slot CB players available in this draft.

    Asante Samuel Jr. 5'10" - 185lbs. 4.45 and 4.52/40s, 35" vertical, and 10'4" Broad Jump. 12 reps on the bench.

    Lots of names. Go check what numbers Marco Wilson put up at Florida's pro day. What round would you take a guy like him? I'm hoping 4th but who knows now?

    Re: Time to start a CB thread.

    Injury stories on the CB front will maybe drop some BIG CB names into the steelers' draft range.

    Caleb Farley has been ranked as high as CB#1 on some boards I have looked at recently. He has had a minor back surgery this offseason that will prevent him from working out at VaTech's pro day, plus the player opted out for the 2020 season. Could this put him in play at 24, and would YOU consider drafting him there if available?

    https://nflmocks.com/2021/03/23/2021...le-evaluation/

    Greg Newsome has been ranked in the top5 CB prospects regularly on draft boards. I was already thinking that IF he made it past the titans at 22 he could be in play for the Steelers at 24. Newsome has a history of injuries throughout his college career however. This could drop him all the way out of the 1st and maybe even the 2nd rounds according to some analysts. Not worth the risk, IMO, but I would love to read YOUR opinions.

    https://www.bigblueview.com/2021/2/2...port-ny-giants

    Ifeatu Melifonwu is listed as a top100 player in this draft class and a top10 CB on most draft boards online. While he made it through 2020 without any games missed due to injury, he did miss significant playing time due to 'lower body injury' the previous 2 seasons. Some of you may remember his brother was talked about significantly on here as well. Probably rated as a 2nd-3rd round prospect he could fall as far as day 3 according to some online mocks.

    Any interest in any of these prospects with significant injury concerns? If so, when would YOU consider them in the upcoming draft? From everything I have read from most of YOU on this forum, I expect to see a lot of "Day3" responses. But I'm still curious how urgent YOU GUYS think this position has become.

    These guys should only go by the electric timer when talking about the 40.

    Re: Time to start a CB thread.

    Marco Wilson ended up with the Cardinals 4th round.

    Eric Stokes drafted by the Packers 1st round #29 overall.

    Kelvin Joseph second round to the Cowboys.

    Tay Gowan went 6th round to the Cardinals.

    Caleb Farley 1st round to the Titans #22 overall.

    Greg Newsome 1st round to the Browns #26 overall

    Ifeatu Melifonwu 3rd round to the Lions

    Asante Samuel Jr went 2nd round to the Chargers.

    Tyson Campbell drafted 2nd round by the Jaguars.

    None of the guys we talked about became Steelers.

    When Shaun Wade fell to the 5th round, I thought it was a done deal that they would try to get him.

    When they announced the trade, I was sure it would be Wade. Instead they traded up for Loudermilk.
