Re: Football Guy's Member Mock Draft
The Houston Texans select Earl Thomas DB University of Texas
The ability of Thomas to be a cover safety and/or potential even play corner makes him the pick here. The need is a defensive back with ball skills from either position. If Dunta Robinson goes via free agency then Thomas has the cover skills to play CB. If Robinson returns, then the okay, but not special Eugene Wilson becomes quality veteran depth. Earl's weakness is against the run, but paired with Pollard he would not be placed in a run support situation very often.
