Someone I was talking to made a great point. Thomas would play the RE in the base D and move to DT in the Nickel. So essentially he still makes a tremendous impact even if he can't be an edge because he plays so many snaps.

If both picks panned out that front 4 would be nasty in the nickel right??
Yes, Thomas with, ideally, a Joker who could pass rush would literally be my creme de la creme of possibilities. I wonder if there's a chance that Reddick could fall. Speaking of dream scenarios. But yeah, give me Thomas and Watt and I'd pretty much give the draft an A no matter what happened after that.
