Lets take a look at the Detroit Starting D for 2010 assuming they pick Suh with the 2nd overall pick after Bradford goes to St. Louis. 






Kyle Vanden Bosch (DE)    Cory Williams (DT)  Ndamakung Suh (DT)  Jason Hunter (DE)


          Julius Peterson (OLB)             DeAndre Levy (MLB)      Ernie Sims (OLB)


(LCB)  Chris Huston??                                                (RCB) Kevin Hobbs??                                                

(LCB) Demarkus Faggins ??                                      (RCB) Jonathan Wade??

(LCB) Will James??                                           


(FS)Louis Delmas                                      (SS) Marvin White??

                     (SS) Kalvin Pearson??


Assuming the Detroit Lions draft Suh with the 2nd overall pick in the 2010 draft. There are only 3 remaining places to address on the Defense. That means the Detroit Lions Defense could be a very tough one to go up against in 2010. Who do you think would make the best choices for the CB and SS positions in the draft that would be available in the 2nd rounds and later? Lets take a look at the Available CB's in this years Draft to see who might fall to Round 2 or later




 Joe Haden, Florida - Scouting Report (Probably a 1st round Talent)

Height: 5-11. Weight: 190. 

Projected 40 Time: 4.43. 

Projected Round (2010): Top 10 Pick. 

1/4/10: Joe Haden has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Haden will be the first cornerback taken and has a shot at being selected in the top 10. 

3/7/09: Replaced Donovan Warren as the top 2011 cornerback prospect. Joe Haden, qualifying for the All-SEC Second Team, broke up an amazing 12 passes. He also had 87 tackles and three interceptions. 

8/5/08: Started all but one game as a true freshman. Joe Haden broke up 12 passes and managed 63 tackles. 


 Donovan Warren, Michigan (Could fall to round 2 if Kyle Wilson sneaks into the 1st round)

Height: 6-0. Weight: 182. 

Projected 40 Time: 4.40. 

Projected Round (2010): Top 25 Pick. 

1/3/10: Donovan Warren has declared for the 2010 NFL Draft. Warren is an excellent corner. He made the right move by capitalizing on an incredible junior campaign. He should be the second corner off the board. 

3/7/09: Not even Donovan Warren's stock was immune to Rich Rodriguez's blunders. Warren regressed a bit in 2008, but still finished with 52 tackles, 3.5 TFL, four passes broken up and a pick.

8/5/08: Donovan Warren played extremely well as a true freshman in 2007, starting 11 games, and managing 52 tackles and six pass break-ups. He qualified for the Freshman All-America first team. 

 Brandon Ghee, Wake Forest - Scouting Report 

Height: 5-11. Weight: 189. 

Projected 40 Time: 4.40. 

Projected Round (2010): 1-2. 

1/27/10: Numerous corners are shining at the Senior Bowl, and one of them is Brandon Ghee, who may have vaulted himself into late first-round consideration. Details available in the 2010 Senior Bowl section. 

1/9/10: Brandon Ghee broke up eight passes in 2009. In a matchup against Demaryius Thomas, Ghee completely shut the athletic receiver down. 

3/7/09: Though he missed two games with an ankle injury, Brandon Ghee still managed 35 tackles, seven passes broken up and 3.5 TFL.  


 Perrish Cox, Oklahoma State - Scouting Report 

Height: 5-11. Weight: 189. 

Projected 40 Time: 4.46. 

Projected Round (2010): 2

1/9/10: A big corner with some speed, Perrish Cox shadowed No. 1 receivers all year. He picked four passes and broke up 15 more. He also did a great job as a return specialist, averaging 10.4 yards on punts (with a touchdown) and 21.0 on kickoffs. One concern however: Cox was suspended for Oklahoma State's winter scrimmage against Ole Miss for undisclosed reasons. 

3/7/09: Projected as a zone corner, Perrish Cox notched 32 tackles, eight passes broken up and two picks as a junior. Also, Cox returned two kickoffs for touchdowns. 

8/5/08: Perrish Cox was inserted into the starting lineup mid-season, and never looked back, as he was penciled in the final eight games of the season. Cox finished with 42 tackles, two picks, eight pass break-ups and two special-teams touchdowns.  


Obviously this list just scratches the surface of the CB talent available in 2010, and this list includes some guys that will probably go in the 1st round. Assuming that Kyle Wilson sneaks into the 1st round due to dramatically rising stock after the Combine, one of these top listed CB's may fall to the 2nd round. So who do you think could be there at the 34th overall pick?
