    This safety class kind of blows after Mark Barron. With our very stout group of corners, I think we will be more than fine with Sensabaugh and Pool for 1 year. More pressing needs: TE, WR, OC, OLB, ILB.

    I've been thinking about this too. I don't think we draft one this year. There are some decent guys out there but next year's crop seems to be much better.

    Yeah. I want a safety but it's much smarter to just draft one next year. I could very well see us taking a safety in the first round next year and our secondary overhaul will be solid for the entirety of Carr's contract.

    If the BPA is a safety we take one.

    Cause the safeties in Dallas suck and we can at least hope that guy develops if he's drafted.

    I really want to like Markelle Martin, but when I put on his game highlights, I just don't see anything special. I love his intangibles, but as a player, he's underwhelming.

    yeah, not impressed with too many safties. Brodney Pool will be fine for this year coming up.

    Yeah, I don't really see a safety worth drafting at this point unless we get a late developmental guy that has some athletic upside. No one we take now would help this year.

    Well we are desperate for a playmaker at safety, thats the reason for the interest in one.

    If there is a safety on the board who is the BPA, draft him and let him develop. Pool is only another one year band-aid anyway, the prospect could be a starter next year.

    There are alot of starting safeties drafted from 4-7 that are good starters in the NFL, better than what we have now.

    If the scouts think one rates high enough to draft, pick him up and don't look back cause I care more about what the scouts have to say about a prospect than the media saying there aren't any safeties this year.

    Agree, with the poster, after Barron no need to take a safety. Weak class, and Sensi and Pool are gonna start anyway. Plus we still have Church. Much rather address other needs at this point than to just take one for the sake of taking one.

    When people say its a bad draft at safety, they don't mean there are not draft able players just not alot of 1-3 rd picks which are usually walk in starters at safety.

    There is very little doubt in my mind that safety will be a big, glaring need next offseason. Oh well. Every team has multiple weaknesses, even Superbowl winners and we've got a bunch of quality corners that will help make up for it.

    We may have to use the band-aid stategy on Safety this year.

    I said stop it! Stop means stop!

    Snagging a guy like him would make up for not getting Barron.

    Would be nice and better to draft someone in this draft who can develop into a starter next year and use next year's pick on a pass rusher though.
