William Moore and Taylor Mays get all the pub, but not many people talk about the rest. Rashad Johnson did get some attention after his what...10 intercept game, but still not many of the other safeties are receiving any talk. Louis Delmas is quickly becoming a draftnik favorite, but still not much is really known about him.

I'm particularly interested in:

David Bruton
Otis Wiley
Patrick Chung

EMANUEL COOK EMANUEL COOK EMANUEL COOK.

Best safety in the draft if he declares.

Louis Delmas is very good. The reason he's rising so much is because he has good range and he's a hard hitter who loves to throw his body around and make contact. He plays like Tanard Jackson but he looks more built.

Not as high on Moore, Johnson, Wiley and Bruton. I like Mays and Chung.

He's declaring. No other way to explain him not showing up for any classes the past few weeks.

This is getting really annoying. We get it, you like Berry. He's not eligible, and even if he was, he's not the best thing since Jordyz Nelsonz. If you can't stop mentioning his name in every safety thread where he doesn't belong, you should go wait the year on another forum.

Edit: Cook. About 5'10 210. Prototypical size but could use an inch or two. Good speed, great burst, quickness and closing speed. Physical, tough kid that loves to make big hits and tackles. Ridiculous production from the position and has a high % of solo tackles. Not a "special" coverage guy but has the athletic ability to become a complete safety at either free or strong, in any defense.

Comparison: Bob Sanders with more height and less straight-line speed.

Oh get over it. It's a joke. Jesus. Besides, I'm not the one who's pimping Eric Berry the most, and when I do talk about him it's mostly in the college forum.

Call it homerism, but Michael Hamlin out of Clemson is a solid safety after the likes of Rashad Johnson and Chung are off the board.

He's pretty good in coverage, but we use him a lot in the box.

out of chung and cook...who is better in coverage? both seem to be pretty similar in their physical style of play and hitting ability.

I really like Michael Hamlin too as a centerfielder kind of safety

Derek Pegues gets overlooked because Miss St. is so bad, but I really like him. Like him as a coverage safety, and he is not afraid to hit either.

Courtney Greene will be an excellent in the box type of safety. Typical strong safety who will hit. Needs to work on his pure speed and lateral movement, but has very good hands for a hard hitting safety

How about Shane Carter from Wisconsin? He didn't have a great year this year, but he had 7 interceptions last year and he's got good size/speed. He's a senior with junior eligibility. Any chance he comes out?

Kam Chancellor.

He is a Junior. I think he will stay in school. He could be a Top 15 Pick in 2010.

I also like Hamlin, he doesn't get much attention bu is a very blanced Safety, with good production over the past few years.

I also really, really like David Bruton. I wold love if the Eagles got him in the second or thrid to be Dawk's successor.

I figured i would just stop and say there are a ton of Safeties in this class that I really, really like.

Chung is a baller. He has a lot of range in him and can cover a lot of ground quickly. Oregon has lined him up all over the place. Sometimes at S, CB, and even LBer. He's obviously a big hitter in the box and he says he prefers to play closer to the line and drop back to coverage but I think he has the abilities to play coverage if needed. He should prove to be a solid pick up for a team in the 2nd round.

This is a very, very good year for safeties. Louis Delmas has been hot lately. He's a very solid player. Michael Hamlin is a good hawk type player. David Bruton is underrated by most.

After Mays Rashad Johnson is my next favorite safety. Ballhawk maybe could slip into the end of the first round depending on how he tests.

I love Rashad Johnson, he's the complete package, great in coverage, very smart and instinctive, and a good tackler and very physical

Sean Smith is a CB right now but I think he is going to move to FS. That kid is going to be something.

I think he'll be given a shot to play CB much like Antrell Rolle was

Sean Smith has a much better chance to succeed at CB then Rolle did. Smith's hips actually can rotate

Nic Harris reminds me a lot of Thomas Davis.. I dunno if that's a good thing but whatever.

Patrick Chung may be the best safety in this draft.

I'm not a huge Mays fan. Seems like a workout warrior.
Moore has had a pretty bad year. I watched him play Oklahoma, and he seemed very slow, even by college standards.

Chung is the complete package.

He is a very good centerfield FS type. Good tackler, has pretty good range, and is a good athlete. Two bad cover corners and a below average front 7 have left him out to dry at times this year. 2nd-3rd round is probably a good bet for him.

I think Nic Harris will end up being an OLB in the NFL just like Davis. That is not a bad comparison. Harris is much bigger though.

He returned either kicks or punts at one point. How can you question his speed?

He's the complete package. Just a flat out football player.

Returning kicks is more about patience and vision then pure speed. It's how a guy like Joe Burnett can be a big time return man despite rumors of running a 4.6 40

Really won't offer much against the run. He's more of a centerfielder

I could see Derrick Richardson getting drafted in the late stages of day two. Not too bad of a prospect.

Rashad Johnson is personally my favorite safety in the whole draft. The guy is a football player, and a leader on and off the field.
