Thornton was not hurt until the third game and that was the first time he had made it on the field. Reeves and Jones both played the first two games while Thornton was inactive and sitting at home. And they were both active the day Thornton finally made it to the game and got hurt. So yes they did beat him out those first two games.
And yes you do need more speed at CB than at FS but I don't think Thornton can play CB in this league. Except maybe in the slot where it is more about quickness than speed and Thornton is reportedly very quick so he might could play there. Regardless of which position they try him at I doubt he makes the team...he just doesn't have that much talent.
