Kyle Wilson over Earl Thomas
This. I really like this mock though.
Homer pick? ha
I personally prefer Thomas, but I would be fine with Wilson as well.
Thomas has the ability to play CB or S which is pretty intriguing prospect considering our current group of DBs
I guess you could say it's a homer pick. I'm not going to lie. I've just seen the guy play for the last 4 years that I'm convinced he's going to one hell of a CB in the NFL. He's been the heart and soul of our defense and has the great attitude and leadership qualities you look for in a player.
He's excellent in coverage and is stronger than any CB in this years draft. With the ability to jam the more physical WR's in the NFL along with being able to keep up with the faster WR's, what more could you ask for? NFL team scouts came away from his pro-day impressed with his DB skills along with his 4.4 speed.
Don't get me wrong, I'd be happy with Earl Thomas as well. You wont see me complaining if we do draft him. I just happen to like Wilson more as a prospect. With that said I wouldn't mind taking both Earl Thomas and Kyle Wilson in the first round if their are no OT's of value available. Plenty of depth in this draft to be able to land a solid RT in the 2nd round.
I agree with everything you said. Wilson does look like the real deal, and I'm sure you know a lot more then I do about him, having watched his games the last 4 years. I was just messing around, cause I looked up and saw your name had Boise in it. (Im a huge homer too when it comes to CAL players!)
I would love either of them in this draft. I just personally prefer Thomas for some reason.
As far as getting both of them in the first and an OT later, that probably isn't likely but it is a possibility with the McNabb trade. The redskins are likely to take a tackle now at 4 and if Okung is taken by the lions that means that the top 4 tackles could easily be gone by 13. That is a scenario where I could see us taking BPA, BPA in round one and OT in round 2. For all we know Thomas and Wilson could be BPA at 13 and 17 according to the niners draft board. So many options this year, with our first two rounds.
I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait till this Draft!!
