I missed the Saints game due to a family emergency. I would love to have seen how Josh Thomas matched up vs. a quality offense. I just really didn't get excited watching him win a few battles vs unmotivated reserves on losing teams. He makes plays, I can give him credit for that. But I would be disappointed if we went into the 2013 Super Bowl Campaign with Josh Thomas as our Plan A. We are trying to make the playoffs and win the super bowl right?

What do you see negative about the kid other than not being a big name guy? Here is what I like about him, no matter who he is against he gets in their face at the LOS. Yeah sometimes they get off his jam and get behind him, but that fearlessness at the line is something that we have missed around here for a long time. I've said it in other threads, he played better than Chris Gamble ever has and that includes going against Roddy and Julio, who in my opinion are as good a combo as you will see in the NFL.

Defensive line - be able to create a ridiculous 4-man rush. Greg, Dwan and Charles know how to bring the heat, but what would really make it ridiculous is to bring in a talented guy to round out the front four. You're not going to find someone like that except in the first round, maybe second.

Secondary - you want bigger, more physical DBs here. Look at the Seahawks' nameless secondary. You can't figure out who those guys are but they will bump you off your route and are, for the most part, gigantic. Even QBs such as Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers had a tough time throwing against them. Xavier Rhodes is someone that fits that kind of mold. Forget Honey Badger, if 5'1'' corners are your bag then we can just re-sign Munnerlyn for depth at vet min who kept Drew Brees to a 53.8 rating throwing against him last Sunday.

WR - Only in favor of drafting one who is tall and productive with a high propensity for YAC

I'd have no problem with Allen in the first and top DT in the second, unless we can find a way to land a FA DT like Dorsey, Melton, etc.

there is 1 1/2 person who can beat man coverage on this team. Smitty and some times Lafell. this team needs a WR to grow with its QB, so one should be brought in early.

I hope Jesse Williams underperform on Monday night and at the combine just so we could land that big rock in the 2nd. I'd jizz over a Keenan Allen/Jesse Williams draft.

I don't hate Josh Thomas. I just think Gamble is gone for cap reasons. That leaves Thomas, Norman, and maybe Munnerlyn. It would be nice to get a bigger faster talent in there competing with those guys.

I like Thomas but i rather him play in the slot.*** we decides to part way with Gamble, CB is just as big an issue as OL, WR, DT. We need to draft one high or go through FA.
