It looks like everybody is agreeing that Patrick Peterson, Price Amukamara, And Brandon Harris are in that order the top 3 CB prospects in the 2011 NFL draft. Brandon Harris looks to be the one that's most likely left at #19, and a draft prospect file was just done on him, so i won't get into that.

Nnamdi Asomugha:

What more is there to be said about Asomougha. Many believe he is the best CB in the NFL (myself included). he is the definition of shutdown corner. here is his ESPN Player Profile: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4489

There is however a downside to Nnamdi, he is aproaching  30 years old, and will cost MILLIONS and MILLIONS of Dollars. that said, he is proven, and we know what he is.

It's very rare to find a true shutdown corner in the NFL, and having one gives you the edge to know that you can put one guy at one half of the field and not worry about a big play or a td. having a shutdown corner also helps with the pass rush, allowing you to bring multiple blitzers every single down. every shutdown defense needs a shutdown player in the secondary. i want one for the giants.

what should we do, should we attempt to draft an unproven, prospect. or chase an expensive veteran.
