Nickoe Whitley, S, Mississippi State
am i the only one who thinks nickoe whitley is a top 3 safety in the class? he posted 90 tackles and 3 interceptions on a secondary with two 2nd round picks. this year will also be his fourth year as a starter in the SEC. whitley has good ball skills, recording 10 career interceptions so far in his collegiate career (3 in 2012, 4 in 2011, and 3 in 2010.) on tape, he looks to have good speed and can lay the wood as a hitter.
my favorite safety prospect in this draft class. what am i missing here? why isn't he higher on some rankings i've seen so far? right now, i think he's a solid 3rd round choice with a chance to go higher with a good season.
