Safety: Draft Edition

Ok, so I would love to see Eric Berry slip to us, but realistically that probably won't happen, so I wanna focus on three other safeties  we can get probably in the second or third round.

Nate Allen- Height: 6-2  Weight: 206   40 Yd: 4.50

Strengths: Ball Hawk, Smooth Motion, Great Instincts, Tough, Consistent Tackler, Great Motor, Closes Fast

Weaknesses: Not a big hitter, not elite speed, Not Phenomenal in man coverage

Overall: Has potential to be a team leader and solid player, but is no Ed Reed.

Stats: in 48 games played he had 226 tackles, 9 interceptions and 139 yards.

Reshad Jones- Height: 6-2 Weight: 215   40 Yd: 4.60

Strengths: Very athletic, Great Instincts, Big Hitter,  Ball Hawk, Great Run Support and Reliable Tackler, Nice Motion

Weaknesses: Not great in single coverage, lack of elite speed, inconsistent interceptions

Overall: Has potential to be an Elite Safety, question is it an elite FS or SS?  could provide much needed turnovers.

Stats: In 39 games he has made 206 tackles, 11 interceptions and 174 yards.

Morgan Burnett- Height: 6-1 Weight: 210   40 Yd: 4.55

Strengths: Very good fluid agility and motion, Great Instincts, Great Ball Hawking Skills, Very athletic, Hard Hitter, Tough, Is great against the run

Weaknesses: Inconsistent tackling,  not elite speed,  and sometimes takes poor angles

Overall: Could be a Great Sleeper Pick,  Should be solid if not elite safety and great leader

Stats: In 40 games played he has 235 tackles, 14 interceptions and 135 yards.

So, I personally think we should get Burnett, but what do you guys think?

(since my last post wasn't that good, figured id step it up a notch,lol)
