I’m not saying CB isn’t important, at all, but when someone thinks DMVP CB is not the position anyone thinks of.
I can think of 2 CBs in the last 35 yrs that have won MVP. Deion and Gilmore, and I don’t think Gilmore should have won it. Christian Jones is the best defensive player in the league right now and Aaron Donald is probably the next best. MVP you think DE, LBer, and DT, as a matter of fact I can think of more S that have won it.
As to pay again the top DEs, DTs, and LBers make more.
Point being the trenches are still where the game is won and value as in highest paid, including rush LBers like Von Miller or Mack.
CB is valuable, but even the best need pressure, they can’t cover all day. Slays worst 2 yrs excluding his rookie yr have been playing man in a scheme that can’t pressure. A rook like Okudah will struggle without pressure.
We have 1 legit DT in Shelton, a 30 yr old 1 yr wonder in Williams, and little else. To make it worse Shelton plays less than 50% of the snaps. To compound it even more we have no true Jack or a DE that can generate a consistent rush opposite Flowers.
IMO. CB 2 is a need, but I don’t see it as a bigger need than the need to get pressure. I’ll take Young, Kinlaw, or Brown ahead of Okudah. All 3 can create pressure, and stop the run. On a D that couldn’t do either last yr. That would be my priority in a win now or your fired situation.
