Scout Inc. on ESPN has EARL THOMAS listed at #12.
While Mel Kiper said this in his 2010 DRAFT PREVIEW;
He is the complete package at the saftey position. In coverage he's like having another corner on the field. He does a great job of reading the quarterback and has terrific ball skill (6) interceptions. He's also a very good tackler and is at his best in big games.
In summary; This guy if available at #13 will be hard to pass up.
I don't like him that much and IMO the need for Safety is somewhat overstated on this board.
Our needs our these.
5) WR - yes we could use another one alongside Crabtree. Crabtree is the only real threat out there.
6) OLB - pass rusher. This is somewhat better with Brooks and Manny playing well this year. Better than I expected.
7) S - sure Safety is something we could look at. But Goldson and Lewis are more than capable for now.
