ESPN's Steve Muench compares West Virginia S Karl Joseph to Earl Thomas.
Following a torn ACL in October, Muench notes that Joseph's biggest issue at the moment is questions about his durability. Outside of that, the Scouts Inc. team is sold and thinks Joseph is an easy first-round talent. "The 14th overall pick in the 2010 draft, Thomas has average size, measuring a little over 5-foot-10 and weighing in at 208 pounds at the combine," Muench wrote. "Joseph doesn't have great size either -- he measured in at just under 5-foot-10 and 215 pounds. Yet they are both outstanding run- defenders with above-average stopping power, and their physicality jumps out on tape. Joseph also has the cover skills and range, in addition to the ball skills and instincts, to develop into a playmaker like Thomas." Joseph has visited or will visit the Cowboys, Vikings, Broncos, Bengals, Steelers, Giants, Texans and Colts.
