Saccopoo Memorial Draft Forum>Calling all Scouts: Tell me about the top Safety prospects.
Mr_Tomahawk 10:39 PM 03-13-2019
Now that we no longer have Berry, I hope we spend 1 of our top 3 picks on a ball hawk safety.

So all the armchair scouts in here; give me a quick overview of the top safeties in this class that could go in the first two rounds.

And who would you compare them to in the NFL? (Past or Present)

Any Ed Reeds in this class or absolute ballhawks?

Thank you.

Looks like the difference maker we sorely need.

Savage doesn't have the range you'd think, considering his speed. He plays better closer to the line of scrimmage even though he's a little on the smaller side.

Unless you're comfortable with his ability to spend 50% of the time as an over the top safety I don't think so.

HB can do either, but his best work is in the SS/robber role. So another guy like Rapp or Thornhill would be a nice chess piece.

OR, a true FS like Adderley. There is less flexibility there, though. But it would be just flat out awesome and sometimes you can just be BETTER than everyone else.

I'm not a big fan of Rapp. I think at the next level he's more of a pure SS type. I don't see him with the athleticism to play center field.

Thornhill is my guy at safety and I'm hopeful he's sitting there for us at 61, but I doubt it.

Of three I think Adderley is a pure FS, Rapp will end up being more of a box safety, and Thornhill will end up being the most versatile + have the highest upside.

y'all keep saying that and yet...it's not true. You guys act like it's an easy position or something and somehow FS is harder.

It's a different skillset; but it's neither less valuable or less difficult.

Adderley ran a 4.54 at his pro day this week, but pulled up with a hammy injury.

It sounds like the rest of his day went really well though.

I wish he would've put up a faster time...especially after not being able to run at the combine because of his ankle.

Chauncey Gardner-Johnson no matter what

Finding a legit center fielder who can create big plays is harder to find that a box safety. I donít really how thatís inarguable.

A guy like Earl Thomas in his prime is a hell of a lot harder to find than Landon Collins

If Veach and the gang like him, this really should make him available at their pick. Some mocks started having him go prior to KC's pick.

He's one you really have to go on tape with now since he had no positional workouts. Makes it rough for him since his tape is against the competition it is with.

Yeah I'm really surprised this isn't the default answer.

I think more are catching on to him. Iíve seen some fairly reputable draft analysts mock him at the bottom of the 1st to within the first 7-8 picks of the 2nd.

Heís the total package. There is no overt weakness to his game. He checks all the boxes you want, and is arguably the most scheme diverse athlete in this safety class.

I love Adderley as a FS prospect but for the last couple of weeks, I've been thinking the team needs to look at somebody that can truly compliment Mathieu.

By that I mean a guy that's just as versatile. If you go Adderley, you potentially get your single high safety but does that actually limit what you can do with Mathieu?

A guy like CGJ might actually be a better fit because he can potentially do all the things HB can do and you can move them all over the field to create confusion and mismatches.

These have been my feelings too.

I think it's why I'm warming up to Johnathan Abram, Juan Thornhill, and CGJ being a better fit for us than Adderley.
