I'd draft Sydquan Thompson in the 3rd or 4th and move him to safety

    I see this guy as a poor man's Bob Sanders but with better coverage skills.

    He obviously is mini-sized and has to gain some more weight. But this guy has elite CB skills (but with poor top speed to be on the outside), and a kamikaze way of playing the game. He has great instincts and isn't afraid to take on a FB and stick his nose in the box.

    I see him as a FS/SS tweener. Hey, the Bills had success with moving Byrd, an undersized CB, to safety last year too. I belive this guy has an Earl Thomas skill set and can be a player for us.

    Love Syd Quan Thompson. I don't care about the 40...The kid can play football...Never thought about him at S; I think I'd keep him at Cb because of his size.

    Although, on the other hand, we've got Ball at S and I'm pretty sure he was even smaller than Thompson. So it might not be such a bad idea...

    Tightened up. There's no way he really runs a 4.7 and was able to be so successful in shutting down the opposition actually running a 4.7

    Yes. Cal had their pro day already and that's where he tightened up but still finished the workout.

    Me likey. The injury thing is concerning but that's obviously why he'd be a steal. Where do mocks have him going?
