I don't have anything against Thomas, as I said I think both can play FS. When you watch them play in college Elam has played more center field single high Cover 1/3 FS and that is the traditional role of a 'true' FS in the NFL.
Thomas played more like a 'money' LB/NB that plays in the box and matches up 1-on-1 vs a TE, RB or Slot player.

Agreed.

I agree with you that the safety class is strong. I like all of the following safeties:

I think Amerson has the skillset to be an NFL CB.
I like most of the S in the class tho. My favorite prospects are: Reid, Elam, Phillip Thomas, TJ McDonald, Swearinger, Duke Williams and Rashard Hall. I view those guys as making the easiest transition to NFL FS.
But I like these guys too: Vaccaro, Cyprien and Rambo but I view them more as SS types.

I agree with you that the safety class is strong. I like all of the following safeties:

FS - Kenny Vaccaro, Phillip Thomas, David Amerson (I think he'll be a FS in the pros), Baccari Rambo, and Tony Jefferson.

SS - Matt Elam and Shawn Williams

I'm hopeful that we'll be able to draft one of these players.
I agree this safety class is deep. I love Cyrpien to add to your FS list. And a lot of scouts are high on JJ Wilcox, whom the skins have talked to already.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft Prospects

For those who said draft Nick Florence, per rotoworld


Baylor QB Nick Florence will not pursue a career in the NFL.
"I've decided to hang up my cleats and finish my masterís in December," Florence said. "My wife and I have spent the last one and a half months talking about it, and it all came down to what we wanted in life, and it didn't include playing football." It is an interesting choice, since far worse players have retired before entering the NFL, but it is refreshing to see this kind of life choice made prior to the draft.

Wow. I'm actually pretty shocked. He, I thought, had a future in the NFL holding Clipboards and occasionally play. I figured we could pick him up as a FA and see if he was worth keeping to develop behind RG3 just like at Baylor.

I can't imagine any profession that can match the earning potential of a back-up QB in the NFL. Not to mention the networking opportunities in broadcasting. Strange/wrong decision imo.

Funny you view Vaccaro, Cyprien, and Rambo more strong Safety. When Rambo is the best in this class playing one deep (FS), Vaccaro probably the most versatile safety, and Cyprien probably got the best read and react skills in this draft.

Umm okay...then I find it funny you don't share my view? lol *scratches head over your approach to this disucssion*
If all the above are facts as you present them to be then I don't see room for discussion.

HTTR (needless to say I disagree)

Maybe he values being with his family on a regular basis instead of in the film room, weight room, trainer's room, bus, airplane and hotel all the time.

Vontaze had first round talent, Mathieu was not a first round prospect even before getting kicked off. He was a second round prospect that struggles in man to man, lacks elite speed and lacks size. But he should be available in the later rounds and would definitely be worth taking by then.

True that, maybe he is stable financially and used football to pay for school and dreamed of pursuing another career.

You sure about not having first round talent? Again that was said about Brandon Flowers as well. Not many have elite speed, but I think 4.4 to 4.5 is fast enough for him.
