What about when you said that Atlanta would not take Roddy White a month before the '05 draft?

Jimmy was drafted as a cornerback. Ko was a safety and we passed on him several times. If we had him rated a first round talent we would have taken him in round three or four with or without it being a need.

and they also viewed that with Jimmy and Hall at CB that we wouldn't need a safety because Crocker could hold up at FS and Milloy would be good at SS.

With all due respect, one doesn't grade a player a 1st round talent, then pass on him in the 3rd round because one already has Chris Crocker...

no but they were also saying if Chris Crocker doesn't work out at FS and Jimmy doesn't work out at RCB they would move Jimmy to FS, where they had Ko. so in effect, they had Jimmy at both FS and RCB and when they selected him they took the need for a FS and a RCB off the board in their minds.
