Is it just me or is the league and the college pool lacking in safety talent? You guys would know better than me. . .

I think really good safeties are among the most outlier of outliers. Those who have coverage versatility and also tackling skills are few.

Lots of hitters who can't cover and cover guys who avoid contact.

Something else to consider....Gilbert got popped for PED's. He gets hit again, he's out for a while. And if he's not taking them, does he regress to the guy we cried about giving a big contract to (at the time)?

I thought as this season went on Hubbard played his way off the roster. Knowing that he was a FA at the end of this season Hubbard has to be counting on his tape to pay dividends. If by some small miracle something like this trade was on the table and the Steelers opted to follow through on it Hubbard is not a huge drop off in talent at RT. Hubbard's flexibility is also a great consideration going forward. Speculatively, thinking perhaps Gilbert was losing his edge and partook in the illegal PED supplements? That could be telling for future evaluations. Feiler IMO, is a Interior guy only. Yes, Feiler has experience on the outside but Munchak has only played him inside mostly at RG. Finney at LG/OC. Hawkins to me is largely still an unknown. Yes, Hawkins' played extra tackle/TE position in some packages but has yet to play consistently anywhere else. I'm thinking just like Hubbard got his feet wet doing the same things hopefully Hawkins develops in the same manner. I would trade Gilbert and be open to money/draft pick for Thomas and money/draft pick.
