Dix gives nothing that Terrence Brooks does not have except height. Brook is by far the best FS in the draft on talent. He 5'11 height holds him back.

How does his 5'11 height hold him back? That was a fair argument for a guy like Sharmako Thomas since he is only 5'9...but 5'11 to 6'1 is about average height for a safety. Ed Reed was 5'11. Brian Dawkins was 6'. Polamalu is 5'10. Earl Thomas is 5'10. Eric Weddle is 5'11. Eric Berry is 6'.

There are alot of safeties who have been taken early and played at a high level that were at or near that same height.

Also, I dont agree that Brooks is the best at all, based on pure talent or college performance. Obviously its a matter of opinion, but I see a 2nd - 3rd round talent in Brooks.

I dont like Dix as much as I used to... Shocked ....but I definitely take him over Brooks.

I really like Dix. Think he'd make a hell of a pick at 15.

If it's not him both Ward and Pryor are interesting. Dix>Ward>Pryor for me.

Those three could be difference making CF's IMO. Height aside, I don't feel that way about Brooks.
