move Goldson to SS
The days of huge safeties are gone ... teams pass so much now you need two guys back there that can cover and have good range.
Goldson is good enough in run support to play SS and have Earl play FS.
Who's asking for huge safeties. We're asking for safeties that can tackle, that can intimidate.
You don't need 2 "intimidating" safeties only one. Matter of fact you dont NEED an intimidating safety in the aspect of tackling. Forcing turnovers is just as intimidating as hitting actually more because the QB will hesitate to go that way. Draft Thomas move Goldson to SS and we should be set. Not to mention Goldson has no problem laying the wood.
Heard of the term 'Weakest Link'?
A normal 10 yard pass = 60 yard catch and run thanks to a miss tackle. No thanks. Not from a 1st round pick.
