Can we step outside the parameters of this thread just for one second and imagine if we got Jerrod Allen?

Id start Earl Thomas over Goldson but Id probably keep Whitner over the other starting strong safeties.

Campbell is a better pass rusher than McDonald but I dont know that Id definitely take him over Ray.

If Chris Long is as good at 3-4 OLB as he is 4-3 DE I'd take him over Brooks.

Id keep Sopoaga over Branch.

I think Brown is better than Browner. Brown has always been solid and Browner went undrafted in 05 and spent 4 years in the CFL. We'll see if he can have another year like he did last year. I think he's gonna be like Mike Williams.

I would definitely trade Brown straight up for Patrick Peterson though, mainly because I think he'll be one of the elite corners in the next couple years.

that'd make such a sick combo

i wish we had earl thomas
Peterson over T. Brown. Its debateable which is the better corner, but Peterson is definitely the better playmaker and would be unbelievable on our Defense.

Goldson and Thomas is close, close enough to pause me but I'll stick with the Hawk. Dashon and Whitner play so well together.

Campbell over RayMc could work, but since Ray has been training with Cowboy he's been a different player and I have a good feeling he'll only get better from here.
anyone who takes goldson over Thomas is just a serious homer. Thomas is a way beter FS than goldson. Goldson is a SS forced into the FS role. Wouldnt take anyone over Goldson at SS.

Thomas will probally be the best FS in the league in a year or two.

Thomas and Campbell would be my pics. Wouldnt want anyone else.

Goldson is a top 5 safety
Great combination of a ball hawk, a hard hitter, and a playmaker
Earl thomas may be barely better in coverage but goldson is better in everything else

Thomas' stats: 2 INTs 1 FF goldson 6 ints 6 FF last year

Id take Goldson over him right now

Goldson also benifited from possibly the best front seven in the history of football last year. The stats are not a fair comparison IMO and Thomas had alot more tackles, which again is not a fair comparison. I just think if we had a FS and alowed Goldson the SS spot he would be even beter than he has. Regardless i hope we lock goldson up long term.

"Of the safeties who have played 800-plus snaps this year, he's surrendered the eighth-highest completion percentage. He allowed four touchdowns this year (tied for fifth among safeties) despite the amazing front seven he has in front of him. He's tied for sixth in penalties among safeties this year. If he played behind a mediocre front seven, he would be exposed. Those who just look at stats and Pro Bowl voting might think Goldson is great, but he's just a backup at best"

not sure how reliable these stats are, i got them off a draft site. scroll down to #5 on 49ers fa for full comment. I think goldson is better suited to the
SS spot, and wouldnt go as far as saying he is a backup. I also dont think he is worth nearly the amount of money he wants, i hope we sign him
to a lesser contract or upgrade through the draft. ( not this year though, safety class is looking pretty weak). Niners made the right move with the Franchise tag.
