    We're going to have to hope that Dan Connor takes it to another level in 2013. It's debatable whether he's better than Blackburn at this point. He's a couple years younger, but there's nothing on his statline that suggests he's an improvement over Chase.

    Most recently, in 2012, Connor had 56 combined tackles, v. 98 for Chase. Granted, Dallas had a better overall defense, whereas Chase was forced to cover alot more ground. And there is the difference between the systems as well.

    Maybe Connor will shine in Fewell's system. Let's hope.

    I argued awhile ago that they probably wouldnt draft or didnt need a CB, at least not this season, but LB a couple guys could have stepped in and started.
    I dont think Corner was a have to get but corner is a spot that drafting 1 if value is there is a good move
