Bring this guy in with our #12 pick!!!

Though we have many holes on defense I think we should spend our #12 pick on this guy. This guy is just plain nasty! Supposedly Eric Berry is higher in the draft..... I think Thomas is better than Berry by far! This draft is deep in NTs and LBs and we can grab them all in the later rounds. What do u think?

I hope Miami can trade down. If not, I wouldn't mind Earl Thomas. Miami has certainly spent a lot of time with him.

On the surfarce, Earl Thomas is a nice player, but history shows Parcells and co like the bigger safeties.

i am starting to believe that at the time of the draft his stock is going to be so high that if we want him we will have to take him at 12. there is talk now about him going before we get a chance to pick. I sure would like Thomas as our pick, but honestly wouldn't be bitter if we took OLB or NT either even though it is better value to trade back for those 2 positions.

jason Laconforarra or whatever his name is has said his stock is rising. Most boards however seem to have him around 15-20 so that may mean we are def. taking him.

If we trade down, not so much. Dude could climb to top 10 easy.

Randy Moss would not burn us deep anymore with Thomas deep and Vontae like glue on him.

I think we trade down! Spiller will be there when we pick. Lot of mocks have him going to S.F. at 13 or Seattle at 14. Somebody will want to jump those guys to get Spiller.... I hope!

its Nolan's D though, and while nolan likes more veteran FS's being a quarterback on his D, im sure he would love the ball hawking and coverage abilities of Thomas. his size thing is all over analyzed.

I like Thomas but we need a pass rusher more than a FS imo......problem is the talent at safety will drop more after the first 2 guys are taken than OLB's will.NT is not worth taking at imo.....so is either OLB or FS with our top pick...the ideal would be to move down and take the higher player on our board and get an extra 2nd or 3rd.I think the player the FO wants is Kindle tho....Parcells hasn't drafted a pass rusher like him in his first 2 years with us and I'm sure he wants one.

Ozzy rules!!

Thomas has good instincts reading the QB. He gets in the right spot, fast.

i like morgan burnett a lot more then i do wright...burnett is very physical player and if miami passes on thomas he could be a good fit for them

Given the choice between Graham/Morgan in the 1st and Burnett in the 3rd and Berry in the 1st and an OLB in the 3rd . . . I'd probably go OLB in the 1st.

But, I don't think Burnett will be there in the 3rd, and Berry most likely won't be there when we draft in the 1st.

Isn't Mays a reach with the 12th?

There will be other linebackers and NT in the later rounds. After Earl Thomas there is a significant drop in talent. We need this guy!

Bottom line is that Parcells and co. are value nuts, and unless Berry falls or they are high on Spiller they will do EVERYTHING to trade down.

I think unless they can do that, Earl Thomas is the closest thing to value at a need position and would be a great, great choice.

Thomas has incredible instinct and great timing, plus an impressive afterburner that gets him to the contact point when he needs to be there.

But I can't help thinking he'll get broken up in the NFL. He's on the small side and pretty suicidal with how he puts his body about. SOmetime those guys who are totally kamikaze get away with it, but I think he's a major injury waiting to happen.

Miami making a big fuss over Major Wright. I call smokescreen and I'm predicting they go for Taylor Mays. He's not Thomas calibre but he's a big unit and Nolan obviously got the most out of him at the Senior Bowl.
