He's a FS...not a SS they'd hope to coach into the FS position. He has the size, 6-1, 210, range, and production...8 picks w 3 TD's (led nation), 82 tackles (12 for loss), 4 pass break-ups, 4 forced fumbles. The other thing he has is toughness...he came back from a broken leg and dislocated ankle with that production his senior season. He's a playmaker...which is exactly what Harbaugh's looking for.
I am also a huge fan of Phillip Thomas @ 61.
This. I'd be all in for Thomas or Amerson at 61 or 74, with Swearinger at 93. Then, if Matthieu is still available somewhere in the fourth, I would take him to displace Carlos as the Nickle, and to add depth to the KR/PR spot.
That frees us up to go DE, TE, or DT earlier on.
