How about Nick Turnbull from fiu with one of our seventh round picks or as a free agent. he is a fast 6'2 211 safety. he also played cb. he has 210 career tackles, 14 interceptions and 20 broken up passes and in 2004 had 74 tackles, 5 interceptions, 4 broken up passes in his last year as a FS.

On his pro day the herald said this "Turnbull ran a time of 6.7 seconds in the L Drill -- an agility test where players run around cones shaped like the letter ''L.'' An NFC scout said that was one of the fastest L Drill times he has ever seen." with a lower abdominal strain

draft daddy said that he "Is a player that has been absolutely dominant at safety for the Golden Panthers in his career, but will moved to CB to best utilize his speed and athletic ability. ..When this athletic ballhawk does get a long look by the NFL, don't be surprised to see him move back to safety. Nontheless, the FIU coaches belief that he can be a shutdown corner shows he's got decent speed....Respected football people we know are surprised he didn't sign with Miami or some other conference school out of the prep ranks. Turnbull is definitely a smaller school player to watch real closely, due to his size, speed and toughness."

Sounds like a sleeper who could immediately help someone on special teams. I'm interested to know what his 40 time is now. He ran 4.55 as a sophomore.

Before the 2005 season, he was ranked #39 among corner backs in Division I-A by Phil Steele College Football Preview.

He would be a great pick up late. A good back up in case of injury, and special teams player
