Evolution of the safety
After a couple of miserable years at safety, the 2013 draft is pretty well stocked at the safety position going about six deep with prospects who have impact potential. Given the transition professional football is going through in terms of violent collisions and protections on receivers, the safety’s role is being altered. The “enforcer” portion of the job description is becoming secondary to range and cover skills. How that affects teams’ decision-making on prospects will be interesting to see evolve.
