same. I think so but I have to be honest I might put Jones behind McBath and Thomas if i had to order it. Yes Jones was a pick but clearly we dont put to great of stock into picks, see Ronald Johnson, Jason Slowey (we'll have to wait and see if we bring him back on PS like many reporters opined earlier in the summer). Jones' biggest asset is being a 4.3 guy on ST, both McBath and Thomas have years of experience in our schemes, McBath with Donatell in Denver and Thomas with Fangio at Stanford.
And I have said to others who argued we keep Colin Jones for ST (because he really serves no purpose at SS) is that we have one of the best ST in the league and we already have a bunch of ST aces. We use our 1st stringers on PR so we have Bowman and Goldson, we have Spillman who is an ace, we have guys like Dixon or Cartwright, Gooden and Grant, etc. It's not like we are bare at ST. I would agree and put Thomas and McBath ahead of him but like I said I don't think any of those 3 are out of it. A lot could depend if we got 4 CBs and add an extra S because in previous years we would bring in Reggie as a 3rd S instead of 5th CB. Or we used him like a CB.... I'm wondering if we would do that this year and bring in Spillman or Robinson as the extra DB in dime packages instead of Brock.
