You see so many safeties that are tough as nails but lack in their ability to cover. We need coverage skills as bad, if not more, than the toughness. The team hasn't had a ball hawking safety in a few years. Which safeties, if any, in this class have both these skills?
Maybe Tony Jefferson? I thought Phillip Thomas but saw him in the bowl game and he slid back into the mesh with the rest of the safeties.
