Last year Patrick Petersen was touted as one of the best CB's to ever come out of college. He was taken#5 overall. Had a great year as a returner, struggled at times as a CB. He will be great, but its taking him some time. As another poster said, there are veteran options at CB, so I don't think we are "relying" on Gilmore. He will only be starting if he is a better player than the veterans we relied on last year. As a rookie, Glen is not going to be able to take on every top pass rusher in the league 1 on 1. Hopefully he can eventually. The veterans available at tackle have more questions about them than the CBs we have.
2011 - Smart posters warned everyone else, Fitzpatrick was a waste of a year. Now we all know.
2012 - Smart posters warned everyone else another season of Gailey was a waste of a year. Now we all know
2013 - Smart posters are warning everyone else another year of brandon/nix is a waste of a year. Next year we will all know.
