Imagine if the 49ers hadn't passed up on Earl Thomas?

Anthony Davis is still very young, but thus far he has looked like an average at best right tackle while Thomas has turned out like a Willis-type transformational type player. I was thinking what this defense could look like with Thomas at FS and perhaps Goldson at SS. That is my main regret from last year's draft, passing up on a top safety like Thomas AND that he ended up with the Seahawks of all teams of course.
Yea
Yea very true but can't rewind time. It is what it is. i'm sure the Cards are still wondering why they didn't draft AP

I'm very content with our safety situation. Goldson and Whitner are playing very well.
We can do this with every draft and every team.
If we had Earl Thomas and passed on AD, we'd probably have Snyder at RT and Rachal at RG. That hasn't exactly worked out well for us, historically.

I'm just fine with the way things are at 13-3.
If Anthony Davis turns out to be a premiere right tackle, I will not regret it at all. So far he's shown to not be injury prone, does not make dumb mistakes (him and Joe Staley were not called for holding ONCE this entire season), and has great physical assets. Also a great locker room presence. I think he'll be very good for years to come, which is great because we don't really have anyone behind him. Alex Boone is more of a LT IMO.
Imagine if we hadn't passed on Rodgers

Imagine if we hadn't passed on Desean Jackson

Imagine if we had drafted Carriker instead of Willis. Or Blaine gabbert instead of Aldon Smith. Can't get em right every time, be nice if we did though.
slightly better thread than the we shoulda drafted aaron rodgers story
Imagine if we had taken Warren Sapp instead of JJ Stokes?

...and how about the way Davis handled Suh? He took him right off of his game and right out of the game. AD = nasty.
Imagine all the people living life in peace.
