Best “Not First Round” Safety Prospects in this Year’s NFL Draft

OK kids it is that time of year again, draft talk is everywhere. Who will be taken number one and who are the top ten picks gets way more play then it should. In fact, I think it has got to the point of being sickening.  We as Packer fans don’t get included in all that TOP ten blather and that is a good thing. Over the off season a lot of what I hear at my usual hang out TalkinPackers...

Arizona Cardinals Team Needs: Safety

The Cardinals need a safety and it’s becoming more likely that Arizona could select one in the first round with each passing day. Tyrann Mathieu is reportedly ahead of schedule in his rehab from tearing knee ligaments in December against the Rams. The other safety spot could go to Rashad Johnson but there is going to be competition for it in training camp. Arizona could be looking...

Eagles 2014 Seven-Round Mock Draft

The Eagles are in a peculiar position for the 2014 NFL draft. Defensive back is their biggest need, but many people have been mocking a wide receiver to the Eagles in the wake of the DeSean Jackson release. This is a very deep draft for both wide receivers and defensive backs, so they can go either way in the first two rounds. I personally had the Eagles choosing Calvin Pryor out...

Should the Houston Texans draft any safeties?

It will surely be a very interesting draft for the Houston Texans this year. They have  the first overall pick, and it remains unclear who they’ll take. The Texans now have a pressing need at safety, after veteran Danieal Manning was cut and Ed Reed was released mid-season last year after becoming a bust of a signing. However, there’s no doubt they won’t be taking a safety...

Over the last few weeks we have profiled many different options for the Bears in the first round. Aaron Donald, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Justin Gilbert have been top names but we also gave you Jimmie Ward. Sadly, Ward wasn’t meant with such fanfare as the others and it’s time to ask why? Ask yourself this, if Ward was from Alabama, Michigan or any other big name school would he...

Ten safeties the Redskins can draft for immediate secondary help

As I said last week when discussing corners, the Redskins still have some work to do when it comes to their secondary. Notwithstanding the addition of Ryan Clark, it’s still reasonably likely that one of the ten names on this list could wind up on Washington’s roster. Here’s a look at the top ten safety prospects in the NFL Draft. One important note: I put free safeties and...

Evaluating each Saints' potential first-round draft pick

The 2014 NFL Draft season, like every other one before it, is filled with plenty of misinformation. Teams often leak bogus reports in an attempt to propel or deflate the stock of any given draft prospect. At the same time, each team is allocated pre-draft visits with only 30 prospects, so it is difficult to argue that a team doesn’t have at least some level of interest in the...

Jets may draft Calvin Pryor in first-round

The New York Jets have been linked to just about every top receiver in the draft class this year and it’s widely believed that they’ll be spending their first round pick on a target to add to the arsenal for Geno Smith or Michel Vick. But while taking someone like Odell Beckham Jr or Mike Evans is a really good idea, so too might be taking a safety. Jets beat writer Rich Cimini...

Seven defensive backs visit the Big Easy, the more the merrier for the New Orleans Saints

It may seem a tad bit superfluous that the New Orleans Saints brought in seven defensive backs on Tuesday – Tax Day – when the secondary is already a relative strength. With the signing of Champ Bailey and the quadrant of talented safeties the team now possesses, bringing in even one highly thought of safety for a workout calls to mind a popular New Orleans idiom – lagniappe...

Dallas Cowboys | Best & Worst Case Scenario for Round 1 of the NFL Draft

The Cowboys are a tough team to read in 2014, they have quite a few needs on both sides of the ball AND they could be a wildcard to trade up to make a splashy move. One thing is certain, the first pick they make this year will surely be more appealing than last years 1st selection in Travis Frederick (good pick, but let’s be honest nobody in Dallas was doing cartwheels).
