Default Earl Thomas

Has he declared? thought he was going back for a year? just that i have seen him still being mentioned in most mocks, even ones that have been updated today. Check out the WalterFootball mock draft page, a very good mock draft site. Has us taking Earl Thomas and its been updated today

Last I heard he was still going back to school. You may want to keep a close eye on the Texas game though. If they win, he could possible change his mind.

I'd much rather see a CB picked. Someone like Donovan Warren, or Ras-I Dowling.

Or we could trade down and get a NT like Terrence Cody. I just worry that Cody can't control his weight. and we'll have Big Snack 2.0 on our hands.

I really don't see us passing on someone like Thomas for a CB, particularly since we took 2 last year, but you never know. You listed two great prospects but of the two I think I like Dowling better, mainly because I think he plays safety for us. I thought safety was a need last year, and see it as a huge need this year.

This is going to be a fun draft.

If Earl Thomas declares I hope we can get him. I'd love to see him and Troy in our secondary.

Cody showed up as a freshman weighing 425 and has maintained 350-360 since. He's manageable with proper motivation.

cody jiggles like jello more than any fat player i've ever seen. that 350 - 360 is a soft 350 - 360 ... he needs to hit the iron and turn some of that blubber into muscle and get down to about 340...
