I wish we could have got a nice O-lineman and I was really wanting Earl Thomas. I thought when we traded up to 11 that we were going for Thomas. I hope he doesn't burn us too many times in his career in the NFC West. Singletary told us in Santa Clara tonight, he got the two guys he wanted, so he has to own our two picks.
But I thought safety and offensive line were our biggest needs going into this draft. D. Goldson had a solid year. But his play was what was expected from any safety. To me he didn't stand out across the league, play at a Pro Bowl level, or show flashes of greatness. After stepping in for Roman, he provided an upgrade, but I would have liked him to move to SS and Thomas to step in at FS. Who will be at SS now, Michael Lewis? Reggie Smith? Curtus Taylor? We could of instantly upgraded to Goldson and Thomas and removed some question marks.
I will be very upset if the Seahawks also sign Chester Pitts, because there is no need to go after him after our top 20 picks.
Thomas and iupati/bulaga would have been what I wanted. That meant we would have got a OT/OG and S, just like they did.
Duh they had high picks, but we would have come out with the same positions address, and our biggest needs addressed with top talents.
