I don't think he'll be much better than Elam, if any improvement. But I also don't think Elam was bad. He didn't make many plays, which we need more of, but the secondary problems had more to do with bad corner play than bad safety play.
Now, I'd love to have a couple of standout safeties who make plays all over the field. Barring that, though, I just want to have safeties who are where they are supposed to be and make tackles when they have to, and I think Elam and Sensabaugh did that for the most part.
