We need a strong safety not a free safety. Goldson did a good job last year at free safety, why screw with success. We need a hard hitting intimidator with good ball and coverage skills and a solid tackler at SS, and there are several to be had in the 2nd or 3rd round. Chad Jones and TJ. Ward are two that would be a better fit. Thomas would be a good FS but his tackling is too suspect for a last line of defense player!
Fine then, draft Thomas and trade Goldson as he is one year away from free agency and it's said that he is going to be a hot commodity.
But you don't need to do tha tbecause you are wrong. Goldson is a hard hitter and everything else you said and would do fine at SS. Thomas is not all that suspect at tackling either.
