    I don't have much faith in anybody we have back there. It looks like the Achilles heel of our defense.

    I think most forget how good Clemons played before his injury. It was a breath of fresh air having a Safety be able to be around a play so much. Dude can cover space quick and is always near the ball. Maybe not intercepting the ball, but he is around it a lot and not to mention an extremely good tackler.

    IMO, He and Jones get the start and man it well this whole year and maybe the next barring injuries.
    2014 Mock Draft

    1. Zack Martin - OT/OG - Notre Dame
    2. Chris Borland - ILB - Wisconsin
    3. C.J. Fiedeorowicz - TE - Iowa
    4. Trai Turner - OG - LSU
    5. Brandon Thomas - OT/OG - Clemson
    6. Storm Johnson - RB - South Florida
    7. Calvin Barnett - DT - Oklahoma State

    I think it'll be Jimmy Wilson and Reshad Jones as your starting safeties this season.

Reshad jones was a 5th round pick and has shown potential to be a very good safety for us, i think reshard is a better strong safety than a free safety, reshad wants to make plays he has aggressive tendecies, the free safety position is more of a dicispline sit back there and support the cbs with safety help. The strong safety positions allows reshad to be more aggressive, come up and make plays, its more suited for him. Clemons we know what he can do, he can hold it down at the free safety. Wilson will have to be amazing to win this job, i just dont think he is as good as some of yal say, yet.
    I think you said it best and nailed it. Reshad was a top college safety, I have no idea why he fell to the 5th, but he seems to be made for SS. And yeah we do know somewhat what Clemons is capable of, he made our defense look decent the year after Gibril Wilson was gone, then we chucked him out randomly and threw in someone with less NFL experience. I'd like to see what our new defensive coaches can do with Clemons.

    The thing I'm wondering is where will Richard Marshall play? At FS he was supposedly a play maker. Dlockz will point out though- at corner he would often get beat. I just don't see how we could pay him that much to only be our nickle.

    Never a shortage of people that don't understand what they read - never said where they would be drafted , just said I wished we would have got lucky enough to land somebody like that

    Bell was let go cause of cover skills. I think R. Jones is new SS. Read he played well during the second half of the seaon. Wilson I think will start FS as I think that makes sense for a CB type.

It was time to move on. I think our defense is better of without bell, can jones hold down his spot? we will see, i think he has the potential but dicispline is his issue, he gambles too much and it hurts the team, maybe philbin can fix that.
    Seriously, is every analysis you have just a load of crap or what? The guy was/is better than any safety we have now...he will be missed. The only reason his is gone is because of the money.
