By selecting University of Texas S Earl Thomas, the Seattle Seahawks solved a big issue in their secondary.
After releasing veteran S Deon Grant earlier this year, that move left a tremendous hole in their defensive backfield.
While Thomas will line up at safety, he's also capable of moving to the slot in passing situations.
Scouts love the intelligence and savvy that Thomas brings to the table.
He'll be an instant starter for the Seahawks this coming season.- Adam Caplan
