    Which is why I will literally drop to my knees and say a prayer if we grab Thomas in the 2nd. We are going DL in the 1st.

    I was intrigued by him earlier in the offseason. After watching more film on him i've gone kinda cold. He can at times tackle well, but for the most part just arm tackles. For a guy his size it will be detrimental at the NFL level. He takes bad angles frequently. All in all he is a liability coming up to defend the run. Is a ball hawking kinda guy, good cover safety prospect.

    We need a ball hawk. Johnson and Church are hard hitters.

    Johnson is more of a cover safety. The team views him as an interchangable safety. IMO we eventually need 2 new safety's.

    Interesting not to see Lester on these lists. Not sure he's in the top 3 or 4, but can't imagine putting him outside of the top 10.

    Yeah, that's what I think. At least they have to draft one in the first three rounds. Preferably one in the first two rounds.

    Dont know much about Thomas, but looks intriguing.

    I really like Jefferson.
    Great tackler, quick.

    This is a really, really, REALLY good safety class. Only could pick 10 so had to leave guys like McDOnald, Rambo, and Earl Wolff off but they're good players too.

    Swearinger is one of my favorite players in this class, love his attitude:

    Would not put Reid #1, but would be fine taking him if was there when we pick in the 2nd round. That is possible, btw.

    Roy Williams? Is that you?:)

    We do need safties that can tackle. But ball-hawking guys that can cover some groudn and who probably will not be close to the LOS is what will fit.
