Yep, like Anthony Davis a lot, but missing on Earl Thomas was a biggie, he could have been like the Ed Reed for this defense, with Goldson at strong safety, that would make an absurdly tough defense that much tougher.
Franchise free safety vs starting right tackle....it's really a no-brainer. Hindsight is so crystal clear!
Hard to argue with this, but there is one thing we have to realize. We can't have studs at every position sadly. On one hand, we get 2-4 years of elite play from that group. On the other hand, a few players will move on because it will be impossible to resign them all. Can't argue against picking Earl Thomas, but it would be much easier to resign Anthony Davis and have Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner extended. I think in either scenario, we have a group of guys that can win it all and win the big game more than once.
