I've learned to take what Mayok thinks with a grain of salt. He always manages to throw some things into the mix that just don't make a whole lot of sense. I'll base what I think of Berry and Thomas based on what I've seen, and that's far from Mayok's mark.

I hope we get Thomas, Once Berry and Mays 40's are done he will be third safety overall.

I question that pick as well and some others there. Afterall he is the NFL.COM "Draft Mastermind"

MAYBE ITS EARL THOMAS VERSATILITY THAT MADE MAYOCK PUT HIM OVER BERRY....BECAUSE ITS BEING SAID THAT HE CAN PLAY CB AND FS @ THE NEXT LEVEL....WHICH YOU GOTTA LOVE ABOUT THE GUY....I SERIOUSLY HOPE WE PICK HIM UP BECAUSE HAVING TROY AND EARL AS OUR SAFETIES WOULD BE AWESOME!!!!! I DON'T THINK TOO MANY TEAMS WOULD BE ABLE TO THROW DEEP ON US WITH THEM TWO OUT THERE!!!!!!

Berry is also very versatile. He's just not being talked about as much as a corner because of his tremendous play-making ability at the safety position. His value is in his knack for always being around the ball.

thomas is being talked about as a corner because he's not the typical size you look for in a safety in the NFL... it has nothing to do with his skill set. i have yet to see thomas compared to ed reed or sean taylor the way berry has..

Curious as to why. Doesn't seem to offer an explanation.

Kind of like last year when he had Max Unger as the top center over Mack and Unger. or

When he had DeJuan Morgan his top safety of 2008.
