Of the listed I went with Reid. I also like Cyprien, Thomas, and Rambo.
I also really like the idea of drafting Amerson and converting him to FS. True ballhawk.
I voted for Phillip Thomas, but I didn't see Amerson as an option. His scouting reports say that he's much better in zone coverage than man coverage. His size and speed are very intriguing. I think that the Niners could probably trade down from 34, draft Amerson, and then use the extra value to trade up from 93.
It seems very likely the NFL will continue its crusade against violent collisions, and to that end will be further changing rules to limit guys like Goldson and other hard hitters. Because of that I am leaning toward the coverage guys...speed and ball instincts over toughness and hits. The guys I have been reading about who do well in coverage are Swearinger, Jefferson, Elam and Vaccaro. Rambo and P Thomas are also considered good in coverage. Still doing some reading but I think the niners may be trying to get ahead of the curve in this regard and may pick more CBs than SS.
