These are all teams who will be looking at first round Safeties:
being the operative word here. I can look at all those teams and give you another need that is greater than their respective need of a Safety. If the Safety is not clearly the better player, they won't grab him, as has been mentioned before (ad nauseum), there are certainly a number of prospects later on in the draft that can fill their needs. Safety is generally not a hard position to fill which is something all the mocks historically have always had wrong.
