1st #27 Earl Thomas S Texas - 5’10” 208 lb 4.43 Thomas should be a top cover safety in the NFL soon. If he is available, he is a blue-chipper that fills a major need. I can’t see Iupati getting past philly. If both are there, I take Thomas anyway! 2nd #59 Dexter McCluster WR Mississippi - 5’8” 172 lb 4.44 A return specialist who can be a terror in the slot. He has game changing ability and can stretch the field. 3rd #90 Jared Veldheer OT Hillsdale - 6’8” 312 lb 5.06 This guy may be raw, but he has the potential to be a beast at LT. Bring him along slowly and let him have McQuistan’s reps for now. 4th #125 Marshall Newhouse G/T TCU - 6’3” 319 lb 4.99 Should be a nasty guard who can replace Kosier within a year. In the meantime he is a versatile lineman who lets us drop Holland. 6th #196 John Conner FB Kentucky - 5’11” 246 lb 4.64 A blocking specialist who allows us to be more physical in the red-zone. He is a pet cat of several zoners and is an upgrade over Cricket. 7th #234 Joe Hawley C/G UNLV – 6’3” 297 lb 5.21 Depth at two positions who makes Proctor expendable… I expect to see a very safe pick at this spot. It's a little early to be mock drafting, but it's a lot of fun to imagine who we could get. At this point I am assuming Either Wilson, Thomas, Davis, or Iupati will be there at #27. Iupati is a beast, but there are a lot of excellent guards that should be available later. I think it's time we deal with this Safety issue and Thomas fits the bill nicely. Mock away.
