I've been pretty busy lately with work, so throw out some intel on some ideal safety prospects in rounds 1-3.

Back on topic.. How about the kid from LSU? LSU seems to be a hotbed of elite secondary players.
Eric Reid? He'll be long gone
Nah, I like him, too. late 2nd.
You know I rarely go all-in for OU players. Gerald McCoy was the last one.

I will say that on first glance through the college season I thought a lot of the bigger-name guys getting hype going into the season were underwhelming. I would single out Vaccaro in particular as a guy whose play I don't think even came in the same neighborhood as the hype.
I thought Tony Jefferson looked pretty good as a steady presence and a complete safety, but didn't wow me enough in either the run or pass game to feel completely confident in him at this point. A guy that intrigued me in terms of size/athleticism/skill combo was T.J. McDonald from USC. He looked like a LB playing safety, and even lined up like a LB at times, but at least on TV he looked like he moved surprisingly well for his size. Decent guy to bring on safety blitzes too. He reminds me more of Kam Chancellor in terms of his movement skills for a big guy than a straight-line stiff like Taylor Mays, but we will see. As more footage, analysis, and an opportunity to see how well the guys move in combine drills and such come to light, I will hopefully be able to narrow down things and have a chance to double-check my first impressions.
