That's interesting, because most of the reports I've been hearing about Hill is that his stock is slipping. He was graded as a late 1st rounder earlier in the season, but now might only be a 2nd round pick.
But from all that I've heard on him, he sounds like a player that would be a good fit for our defense.
I think we need to draft a safety, but I don't think we need to use a #1 pick on someone.
The guys I'm keeping my eyes on at safety are Greg Blue (UGA), Pat Watkins (FSU), Dwayne Slay (Texas Tech), and Nate Salley (Ohio State). All are FS that are better stopping the run than playing the pass. I think that's what we need. A FS that can be tough run stopper.
Someone made the comparison of Greg Blue to Thomas Davis. Well that's what makes me like Blue even more. I think a Thomas Davis-type safety is exactly what we need in our secondary. We need a guy that is like an extra LB back there.
And I think all those guys will be had in Round 2 or later. Blue, Watkins, and Salley all look like 1st day picks in Round 2/3. Slay will likely be a 4th/5th rounder.
