There are maybe four or five free safeties you would consider as upgrades - that's it.
Markelle Martin, Oklahoma State - maybe second round
Trenton Robinson, Michigan State - third
Christian Thompson, South Carolina State - Day Three
Aaron Henry, Wisconsin - Day Three
Neiko Thorpe, Auburn - Day Three
And not a lot of big corners you would consider converting.
It seems you are just refering to the draft but I will make a blanket statement about all free agents and Rookies. We did not have a coverage safety last year, we had a couple of in the box safeties, a couple of CBs playing safety, and one STer pretending to be safety (Sergio), so by default any coverage safety is an upgrade.
I am all for throwing as much mud against the wall as we can and see what sticks.
Come TC safety should consist of -
Draft Pick (perferably from one of the first 3 rounds)
Any other free agent we can find.
Bring em all in and take the best four or 5 out of camp. no reason the above wouldnt be better than this year.
