After losing a couple of possible choices for the ninth pick, Joe Gibbs decided on Carlos Rogers to fill a corner that needed it bad. Rogers comes from Auburn University. This is the second straight season that Gibbs has used the first round pick on a defensive back.
"I think he is a combination of a shutdown corner and a very physical guy. I think he fits in good with us. It's going to be exciting to have him on the football team."
