I've been reviewing the list of available free safeties for the upcoming draft... Most of this is taken from the "Ourlads" 2006 Guide-- 1. Michael Huff (Texas)- 6', 204, 4.37 forty. A great prospect. The total package vs the run & pass. He'll be gone in the first 10 picks. 2. Jason Allen (Tennessee)- 6', 209, 4.43. Another top prospect IF it weren't for the hip thing. He scares me to death because of that. Who knows where he'll go? 3. Ko Simpson (SC)- 6'1, 209, 4.46. Junior eligible. Seems to be very good in coverage with good deep range. Has a burst. Ourlads has him going at #45 to Philly. The trouble is that he doesn't rank high enough to justify our #18 but probably won't be there at #49. 4. Pat Watkins (Florida State)- 6'4", 211, 4.48. Had a very good combine. Very good vs. the pass. Adequate vs. the run. Better in zone than man to man. Ourlads has him going to us at #49. I would be happy with this pick. 5. Roman Harper (Alabama), 5'11, 198, 4.63. Good vs. the run. Just Ok vs. the pass. Next. Ourlads has him going in the 3-4 round. 6. Nate Salley (Ohio State), 6'1, 216, 4.64. Was a corner but projects to safety due to a lack of burst. Lacks speed to excel vs. the pass. A projected 5-6 rounder. 7. Anthony Smith (Syracuse), 6', 194, 4.72. Ran 4.53 on a fast track in the spring. Poor 40 time at the combine will hurt draft status. Has some tools and is instinctive. 3-6 rounder. 8. Calvin Lowry (Penn State), 5'11, 200, 4.58. Good vs. run and pass but not top notch. 5 or 6 rounder. 9. Antoine Howard (Howard), 5'11, 203, 4.39. 3 year starter. Good vs. run and pass with excellent speed. Productive with a nose for the ball. 5 or 6 rounder. After Watkins it's clear the talent available drops off quickly... especially when it comes to finding a FS good vs the pass. My gut feeling is that if we don't come away with one of the first 4 OR taking a top corner and moving Henry to FS then we aren't going to be improving the FS position an awful lot.
