Great IR pick. Love it. See you in 2015, Brandon!

Are people really upset at this pick? REALLY? Not every player will make the team and we will need a few of them to RS. Fellas, we are set at OL for the future and won't have to pay Iupati the big bucks.

I might have taken one of these guys on pure value.... but I like Thomas and have for a while. This dude has long arms and can play G or LEFT tackle, IMHO.. so he's cool with me.

Love it. As I said in the other thread:

Fringe first round talent, but definitely a second round guy, so great value there.

Doesn't count against the 53, contract doesn't start until after this upcoming year is over (I'm assuming it's the same as Lattimore last year).

Gets a year to work with coaches, know the playbook, and be a legit replacement for Iupati at a low cost.

I had the same thought.

This - and if we get Kaep signed, it means the only guy we have a giant need to get under contract for 2015 is Crabtree, which was lessened by Johnson, and we'd have the franchise tag available for him. Or we can franchise Kaep if his price doesn't come down.

Lots of options with this pick, and he's a great player. He could have been a first.

Love the pick. Helps getting rid of Iupati and saving money to lock up possibly Crabs. Doubt it but its possible.

At some point people have to come to grips with the realities of the cap. We need money for Kap - a lot of it. We'll need money for Crabs. Then there are all the other guys we want to keep in addition to Iupati. As much as I wish it weren't so, and as much as I like Iupati (and that's probably more than many here) this move means we can afford to let him go and replace him with a guy that has a reasonable chance of being just as good. Teams need to do that kind of thing constantly if they want to stay good over a period of years and not just be one year wonders. This was an incredible pick IMHO.

Judging solely off of what I'm reading here, this sounds like another great pick. I really hope we end up with Martavis tomorrow. That's all I want...and a pass rusher.

Yep, once you give your QB a big contract, you will inevitably have to let go of some players. So what do you do? Hope you hit on your draft picks and there is minimal drop off. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Thomas should be a better in pass protector than Iupati?

should be, and I say that knowing young OL kids will struggle... but Iupati really bothered me in pass pro, so..

Sadly, he's been a huge disappointment there. Would love to keep him, but out of the big 4 we still have to extend(Kaep, Crabs, Aldon), he's definitely the odd man out.

Thing that upset me about the pick was that it ment we aint taking David Yanky who I like despite the poor combine numbers. But yes this was a good pick. Hes a nice stash and hide player with great upside and potentiel at tackle or gaurd.

Loved this pick and the only pick and player that I hit on. From what I have read, Thomas is an ideal fit at LG which is perfect since Iupati plays LG and will most likely be on another team in a year from now.

Staley, Thomas, Martin, Boone and Davis in 2015 looks pretty good to me.
