Agreed, because of the way rules have changed, passing has really taken over and in-the-box safeties just don't have the same kind of impact anymore.
Agree with this for sure.
Agreed, I wouldn't be surprised to see the 49ers use a high pick on a safety.
yup earl thomas at FS goldson to SS
Gotta say... The idea of Goldson at SS and E. Thomas at FS is starting to sound nicer and nicer. As long as we get an OL with #13 and another CB/PR somewhere... I like our odds getting into the playoffs
Is the team willing to pay top dollar on 2 safeties though? Would be nice, but I believe the team would draft a corner before Thomas unless they believe he can play corner, but he doesnt have the size the 49ers typically look for in CBs. That being said Id like to thnk the niners will draft OL at 13, CB at 17, and im hoping we get Best or McCluster in the 2nd or third and maybe Nate Allen in the 2nd or 3d, or if we landed Thomas Id like a guy like Patrick Robinson in the 2-4th
I agree drafting a S isn't feasable in the 1st round. This team needs to address the CB position. CB is one of the few positions in this draft that isn't considered deep. What the 9ers need to decide is do they want to gamble and spend the 13th pick on Joe Haden or do they like Kyle Wilson enough to take him at 17.
I personally would be biting my nails off if we passed on a OT again with our 1st pick. If one of the 5 best OL are available (okung, thomas, bulaga, davis, iutai (spelling)) we need to take them doesn't matter who's on the board IMO.
To finally address the thread I think this team is pretty deep at DE as is. Smith is a pro bowler, Soap is a solid starter, Balmer isn't at the point where you would give up on a 1st round pick, McDonald is a very solid backup and RJF has alot of potential.
