Comparison of measurable #'s between Shamarko Thomas and the pot head.:
Tyrann Mathieu has better numbers by 1/8" of hand size and .12 in the shuttle. All other measurable #'s show Shamarco Thomas to be the far superior draftee based just on these measurements (and many aren't even close).
Additionally, Shamarco Thomas is faster, bigger and he has no problem making tackles (compare, to Mathieu's flops & lunges), is a focused, hard hitting player and was the top tackler on his team last year. Both players are very quick and highly aggressive, however with the character concerns over Mathieu's career IMO Shamarco Thomas is the smartest choice between the two and would fit in exceptionally well as a Seahawk as both an ET backup and slot corner. I think he could maybe even be an off the wall pick at #56, or he could still be around at the end of the 3-rd or 4-th rounds.
