Mosley is a huge improvement over Williams. Gilbert and Dennard could both easily start right away in the Nickle or even opposite Allen. HaHa gives us a viable 1-2 punch at Safety. I just think that there are better prospects at positions of greater need.
I hear you... but, some counter points:

1. Casey started as a rookie.

2. In today's NFL, passing is indeed more of a factor. But, you have to get teams in third-&-long. Nix ensures that teams can not run on first & second downs (giving themselves third-&-short).

3. Irish Chocolate!!!

(Check out Gilbert's burn-rate. He scares me.)
