Manti Te'o is going to be the ESPN circus of 2013. No way Shanahan wants any part of that.
Unless we can get Jairus Byrd (highly unlikely) or another top notch FS in free agency, I think we have to go that route in the second round. Madieu Williams absolutely killed us last year, he was legitimately awful. Lots of quality guys who project as free safeties who may still be around in the 2nd this year: Eric Reid (unlikely he falls to us at 52 or whatever, though), DJ Swearinger, Bacarri Rambo. Give me one of those guys and I'd be ecstatic. I like Philip Thomas from Fresno as well, but we really need a great cover guy back there and I don't think that's him. Also need another CB, especially if DeAngelo gets cut. Guys I like around the 3-4 rd range: Will Davis from Utah State, Jamar Taylor from Boise, Darius Slay from Mississippi State, and Sanders Commings from UGA.
