    List some with vids if possible.

    I don't think Zbikowski is that great in coverage, but he has good hands runs a 4.3 40 and is great as a punt returner. He might be worth a look later in the draft.

    Who else?

    I'm thinking we might not go DB early in the draft since we have so much money tied down to it already and Jerry likes Watkins(based on his statement of answering from within) so i figured we'd likely add a guy later in the draft. Any thoughts on who we may like that is under the radar and a 2nd day pick?

    Full Name : Gattis, Josh
    College : Wake Forest
    Height: 6'1
    Weight : 212 lbs.
    Position : Safety


    BIO:
    Gattis would be talked about with the top safety prospects if he came from a bigger school. Gattis is a hard worker who is very smart, has track star speed, and makes plays all over the field. He is a strong contributer on special teams and is one guy to watch during the post season games/ workouts because his stock could sky rocket.

    ...and if Zbikowski was coming out this year, he surely wouldn't have been a "late round" pick. IMO.

    Zib is coming out this year and he doesnt run a 4.3 forty. Thats what hye was touted out of high school but is more like a high 4.4.

    Tackling Santonio Holmes at the one yard line while he is celebrating isn't 'running down' someone. It was a horsecollar in the endzone.

    Not real studly but good hustle play.

    Im very curious to see how his game translates to the NFL. He doesnt seem overly agile, and it was hard to see how he is in coverage from that video, more like johnny on the spot. He is certainly a playmaker though.

    John Wendling S Wyoming- Great size at 6'1 222 and also very good speed with a 4.48 40. Very agressive safety who is great against the run and more than above average in coverage. Has all the physical tools to be a good cover S, just needs some help with fundementals. A late day 1 pick that could turn into a starter very quickly.

    If you want a late round safety, think about Kevin Payne of Louisiana-Monroe... 6-0, 220 pounds, ran 2 sub-4.55 second 40s at his recent Pro Day workout... ranked 150th by Fox Sports, which may be a bit high IMO, he looks like a 5th round talent, perhaps a 6th rounder, to me...

    Kevin converted from RB in college, and was his team's top kickoff and punt returner, and his team's PUNTER as well... he doesn't have the speed to return kickoffs in the NFL, but might be able to compete for the punt return job... he certainly brings a lot to the table in the area of special teams play...

    Nah, we have a chance to get a stud FS w/ CB-like skills (i.e. Reggie Nelson or Brandon Merriweather) in the 1st and I think we'll go that way IF we don't address FS in FA (i.e. Ken Hamlin).....

    I like your way of thinking. This guy is really good. A guy that I like is Aaron Rouse, Safety from Virginia Tech, 6-5 215, runs a 4.48, 40 inch verticle. Is more athletic than Pat Watkins. This guy Rouse could play SS and FS. Just imagine on some plays him and Pat Watkins in the back field covering... Looks nice.

    Asron Rouse is more like 6'4" 225. He is not nearly as athletic as Watkins IMO, and makes a much better SS or OLB prospect than a FS prospect. While the two of them would look very intimidating to an opposing offense, Rouse isn't even in the same zip code as Roy Williams.
