Just picked up PFW's draft preview, and decided while I'm combing over the evaluations I'd put together a series of position-specific drafts based on the write-ups and where PFW has the players ranked. Essentially, this is a best-pick-per-round draft at one position based on who is expected to be available (per PFW). 1. FS Nate Allen, South Florida Would like to have taken Earl Thomas, but he is rated 12th by PFW. Allen is the 36th-ranked prospect and has great coverage skills to play center field, although his run support skills are questionable. 2. FS Chris Cook, Virginia Would be converted from cornerback because of his size to play safety, but will have to work on becoming a run supporter. Has nice size and speed for the position. Projected to be a second- or third-round pick. 3. FS Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, Indiana (Pa.) Great size-speed ratio and has the tools to mold into a top free safety. Probably will go higher based on his speed, but PFW has him as a fourth- to fifth-round prospect, and I’ve moved him up from there. And if Dallas has him rated in the second-round range, I'd take him over Cook. 4. FS Sherrick McManis, Northwestern or SS Barry Church, Toledo McManis has good speed and instincts for the position and plays physical, but possibly could have trouble transitioning from corner from a mechanics standpoint. Church would be a physical run-defending strong safety with solid short area zone coverage skills and starter potential. Both are projected to be fourth- or fifth-round picks. 6. FS Brian Jackson, Oklahoma or SS Terrell Skinner, Maryland Jackson is another corner convert who has good hands and reaction skills, but lacks speed. Skinner is a converted receiver who plays the run hard, but would be a work in progress in coverage. Jackson is listed as fifth- to sixth-round prospect, while Skinner is a late draftable pick. 7. FS Mike Newton, Buffalo or FS Van Eskridge, East Carolina Newton has good athleticism, instincts and character, and works hard in the weight room to overcome his size limitations. Might be my favorite underdog safety based on his write-up. Eskridge was the Defensive MVP of the East-West Shrine Game and has good hands, but he lacks speed. Both are listed priority free agents.
