      the NFC does have better DE's than the AFC though
      Better DEs and better wide receivers imo.

      Gibril is probably a top 5 safety at the moment imo, very underrated.

        Gibril Wilson really hasn't been that special since his rookie year. I was a huge follower of him then and he got hit with injuries and seem to fall off the map.

        The homer in me says that if he's healthy all season then Roman Harper will be a very good safety in the NFC. He reminds me of Whitner in Buffalo.
        The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

          i love Gibril. last year, it always looked like he got burnt, when in reality, he was only in the play recovering for his team-mate who got burned. HUGE supporter of him, but he needs to improve his tackling.

              I'd put the Eagles as number one just based off of Brian Dawkins. You can put Lamont Thompson beside him and it'll still be one of the top five safety duos in the NFC because of Dawkins.

                You're a good man. Dawkins is nasty.

                    6. 49ers. Michael Lewis is a bruising presence. He can be vulnerable in coverage, but that is the strength of Mark Roman, who consistently hassles receivers.

Dwight smith played very well, and darren sharper didn't have a stellar year but he is still a top safety in this league. actually 3 is pretty low considering if mike doss and tank willliams are healthy we will have the most/best depth at Safety in the NFC. But NFC isn't really great with safeties as shown the top 5 are pretty subjective i think you could make a case for a few of thoose teams to be #1
                      Well, obviously the lack of pass rush had something to do with it, but the Vikings safties are far from impressive and if they are #3 it shows you how bad the safety situation is in the NFC. The Vikings defense knew the game plan against them would be to pass all day and they still could not stop it one bit. Do you really think the safies had nothing to do with that?
                      You can have all the depth in the word at a position , but if none of the players that provide that depth are very good it doesn't help out too much.

                      What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
                      they get smoked.

                        15th.. Ouch.. Although I can't really say I disagree. Hopefully Sabby Piscitelli and Tanard Jackson can help improve those rankings in the future.

                          I think the Saints should be higher TBH. KK/Harper will be very good. At least #8.

                          Pretty good list though.

                            Agreed. Having a bunch of okay safeties shouldnt put us near the top in any list.
                            What if everyone simultaneously disobeys?
                            It aint a game if no one plays, oh.

                              I don't know how our safeties can be 3rd in the NFC when we considered using our #7 pick on Landry.

                                wow, the nfc tandems for saftetys are pretty bad... none of those teams have a proven duo.....

                                not sure if the cardinals would be in the top 5 for nfl tandems...
