2nd, 3rd and #17 = 3 players
Berry (best safety in draft), Gaither (Proven Starting Tackle)
Rather have those 2 than a 2nd...a 17 and a mid rounder any day...
Take Haden at 13...and oh man...
Come away from draft day looking SOLID
I don't even think Berry is the best FS in this class...Earl Thomas is. Now, Berry can also play SS, but who the hell cares? We need help over the top more than anything, and Goldson would make a great SS.
I couldn't disagree more with this statement. There is a reason why Eric Berry is a sure fire top 10 pick. He has been a consistent playmaker throughout his college career as a ball hawk, a solid tackling machine, and isn't afraid to help against the run. This past season, he has played both safety positions and even cornerback.
I have nothing against Earl Thomas, but his small stature worries me and his ability to handle the pounding of the bigger NFL running backs. Also, he tends to be too aggressive on a play and misses tackles. I've also seen him get burnt a few times.
