It's time for another edition of our weekly "video time" post. This week we'll focus on some safeties who are available in next month's draft. We all know that the Dolphins need to find somebody to compete with Chris Clemons and Tyrone Culver at the now vacant free safety position.

It could be an early pick or it could be a late pick. But you have to believe that the Dolphins will draft a safety at some point during the draft.

USF's Nate Allen is among my favorites out of the second tier safeties:

And I'll end this with Reshad Jones, a player the Dolphins are reportedly interested in. But I just wonder if he can play free safety at the next level or if he's more of a strong safety:
