To Draft a CB or to not Draft a CB

As everyone knows the bucs need a new secondary, and there is an elite CB that will most likely be available to the bucs at the #5 spot. What I find strange is that a ton of fans on this site think we need to draft a running back at #5. Maybe they don't 'get' football, who knows, but to help with my argument here are some stats.

80 percent of all pro bowl selections since 2008 featured CBs drafted in the first round.

38 percent of all 'starting' CBs are first round selections.

Below is a spread sheet of my data, if you see any glaring omissions or errors, let me know and I will adjust.
