    Safety from Fresno State?

    I'm hoping like hell Jerry likes him as much as I do.

    He looks like a young Earl Thomas. I'd love to see him here.

    Yes! This is who I want. Really hope we pick him up. Not expecting it though.

    He's been one of my favorites for this scheme thoughout. But now that we also have an earlier 3rd round pick, I'm almost tempted to wait until 74.

    Not that mocks mean much, but I've seen 4 second round mocks today and noe have in there. Love to get him in the 3rd

    I'm ok with him. I think he would be a 3rd round pick ideally.

    He is such a ballhawk that I just don't think we'll draft him. We avoid guys like that for some reason and go for the guys that may get toasted but are sure tacklers.

    I've wavered on Thomas before, but I think he's the best fit for this defense. Would love to get him at 47

    I wouldn't complain, depending on who else is on the board at the time.

    Either him or Swearinger need to find their way on our team. I still don't buy the Matt Johnson hype and Will Allen is a nice depth player but shouldn't be a full time starter.

    No. Give me Cyprien or Swearinger.. Even rather would have JJ Wilcox.. Thomas is soft

    I don't care who we get as long as it is a safety in the next two rounds.

    Cyprien is a ss, not what we need on our team..we already have church and mj do we have to always draft tacklers not ballhawks? (Holding judgement on mj but still)

    He's good but they probably value RB or LB higher than a safety. Vaccaro was the lone exception

    whoa if thomas is soft then I don't want him. Our last line of defense cannot be scared to tackle. Especially not in the nfc east. Heck look at the teams that went to the superbowl both of them have physical safeties.

    I want to say swearinger but 4.6 speed at his pro day:eek: idk. I love the way he hits though. He would bring SWAG to our defense that left once kelly rowland brokes roy williams heart.

    I think Cyprien can play FS and cover deep half.

    Exactly. Thomas has good ball skills but does not consistently tackle or seem to play with much physicality at all.

    As for Swearinger he ran a 4.6 but did great in the 3 cone and the shuttle.. a 4.6 isn't terrible for a safety anyway it is what Vaccaro ran.. When you are back there it is as much about angles as anything.. Swearinger would be perfect for this team we need some swagger and guys that play with pride and play angry on this defense.
