Why the Eagles should of drafted Earl Thomas


This title was supose to be about Earl Thomas and / or Eric Berry but when the Chiefs took him there was no way of the eagles getting him. So I'm sitting there like ok well earl thomas is still there surely we will grab him. I watch other great guys that could of also helped us like Joe Haden, Rolando McClain, but I wanted Earl Thomas something about his play making ability that just was awesome. Well the eagles were picking 13th they kept showing earl thomas on the screen. I was pumped I was ready to order that jersey the minute they made the announcement. Then I heard the name Brandon Graham I was like man seattle picked him quick, but I was entirely wrong. Ever since that day I only wonder what could of been. Yes I know the Eagles got a hold of Nate Allen but we could of used that pick on someone else had we already gotten Earl Thomas. Lets compare stats.

 

Nate Allen 48 tkls 2 interceptions, 2 sacks

Earl Thomas 75 tkls, 5 interceptions 1 deftd

 

Yes they both played solid. I have nothing against Nate Allen. But you ask anyone out there Earl Thomas is the better player now had the eagles taken Earl Thomas with the 13th pick who could they of grabbed with the pick they used on Allen. 

 

TJ Ward

Sergio Kindle

Daryl Washington

Taylor Mays

Carlos Dunlap

Brandon Spikes

 

Just to name a few.

 

I just dont think DE was a position we needed to address with the 13th pick we could of had some great guys but we went out and got brandon Graham and he barely helped us. Hopefully he pans out in the end but we will never know what could of been.
