I thinking the same thing after researching Safeties. This cat seems to be the next M. Lewis, just bigger. I also read that he played CB as a backup. He has the coverage skills that he developed playing FS, but the kid is a natural SS with great instincts, it looks like, against the run...exactly what we need for this D.
Maybe use our third rounder on him? It seems to be a strong safety class with all the underclassmen declaring with more to come possibly.
Like someone else said, it seems as though this draft is curtailed to our needs at the time we pick. OLs in the first, playmaker for O in the second who can be a RS, and
a SS to succeed M. Lewis.
Hey Ghost, I am now leaning more and more toward Iupati as our second choice. A probowl caliber OG is worth that pick, IMO. Yes, I believe he can be a ProBowler as I don't recall any OL prospect in the last five years throw DLs like rag doll, consistently. This kid is the real deal in just the short time I've watched him.
At that second pick spot, E. Thomas would seem to fit. Move Goldson to SS and place E. Thomas at FS is another option.
I still want Iupati even more than Spiller and that is saying a lot for me.
