    I honestly feel like in a few years Shamarko is gonna be one of those picks that people look back on and say, "How the hell did slip to the 4th round?" I honestly believe that. He's a great kid, no off the field garbage, crazy talented, about as hard a worker as you're ever gonna see, and he has the desire and motivation to be great. As long as he stays healthy I really do believe he'll be a top 5 type safety in this league.

    Usually I'd be a little more cautious about getting excited over a 4th round pick, but he really isn't your typical mid round pick. Can't wait to see him on the field.
    He is already one of my favorite players on the team and he hasn't played a down yet....lol But I agree with you and a few years when looking back at the 2013 draft and Shamarko was a steal in the 4th round....

    With him and Clark we have two missiles on the same team. I like it!

    It says a lot about Thomas that a fourth round pick is getting more love on this board than the first rounder, who is pretty exciting himself.

    It seems like most would be more surprised if Thomas busted than if Jones did. ;-)

    Imo a late round pick is more exciting especially if they become a steal for that pick selection. You already demand a 1st rounder to be great.

    Well, could it be that we are just hungry to possibly having a difference maker in the secondary again? Because Troy has been MIA the last couple of years in that department.
