    I've had my eye on Tavarres King but he's been a bit too inconsistent this year. I was hoping he'd step it up a little more coming into the season.

    I've always liked King. About as good of a vertical threat as there is in this Senior class.

    He typically draws the assignment of the defense's top cover corner and still manages to lead UGA in receiving the last 2 years.... averaging over 20 yards/reception this year.

    He's caught 14 TD's in his last 23 games, I watched him light up an outstanding Michigan St. defense for over 200 yards last year in the Outback Bowl on 6 catches (34 yards/reception). He's got a double move that cornerbacks can't resist... including Morris Claiborne.

    Safety:


    Tier 1 (Top 50-100 Grade)

    Kenny Vaccarro / Texas

    Robert Lester / Alabama

    Dexter McCoil / Tulsa

    Shawn Williams / Georgia

    Shamarko Thomas / Syracuse

    Phillip Thomas / Fresno St.


    Tier 2 (Top 125-175 Grade)

    Jahleel Addae / Central Michigan

    T.J. McDonald / USC

    Rashard Hall / Clemson

    Bacarri Rambo / Georgia

    Cody Davis / Texas Tech

    Kemal Ishmael / UCF

    Duke Williams / Nevada

    Johnathan Cyprien / FIU

    Malcolm Bronson / McNeese St.

    Javon Harris / Oklahoma

    Bradley McDougald / Kansas


    Tier 3 (Top 200-250 Grade)

    Earl Wolff / N.C. State

    Kejuan Riley / Alabama St.

    Daimion Stafford / Nebraska

    Don Jones / Arkansas St.



    *Note*

    The main aspect of Vacarro's game that allows him to stick out in this class is his ability to drop down in the slot and play man coverage against slot receivers. He plays with good technique, and did a nice job against one of the tougher assignments a safety can have.... covering Tavon Austin in man coverage from the slot.

    I've long considered T.J. McDonald to be 80% overhype and 20% substance. He's a hard hitter with good bloodlines, but he's not Tim McDonald.... or even Dennis Smith for that matter. He's stiff as a board and struggles to break down and tackle in open space....often getting himself out of position and taking bad angles (see Syracuse, Oregon, or number of other games). Misses a lot of easy tackles when the ball carrier isn't already corralled. Has no real ball skills to speak of. McDonald is a draftable player, but he's an average safety in my estimation that comes with a lot of the same flaws that Taylor Mays and Darnell Bing had before him. I've always viewed Dexter McCoil as a similar, but much better player.

    Shawn Williams is an extremely physical player who takes proper angles to the action, and is an outstanding leader. Called out his teammates for playing soft, and they responded. A coach on the field and one of Todd Grantham's favorites.

    Jahleel Addae is a lot like Shamarko Thomas in terms of athletic ability. Might be the most athletic safety in this draft. Stands out like a sore thumb on tape for Central Michigan.

    Don Jones is a kid that I'm familiar with going back to several Friday nights in high school when I watched him play for Hazelwood. Terrific special teams player and another underrated Arkansas St. defender.

    Who do you feel would be a good fit in the middle rounds?

    Slimm do you think Bacarri Rambo's off-field issues could see him slip into the 3rd round or later?

    Matt Moore will have no trouble finding a home, for his sake I hope it's a starting job.
    You know for most of his career Landry Jones has been overrated, but now it seems like he's being underrated. I'm not in love with his skills, but got to believe he could be at least a solid backup and an option if he ends up falling to round 3.

    I wouldn't touch McDonald. No situational awareness and seems to have a habit of committing a dumb penalty at the worst possible time. I do wonder how McDonald is considered draftable and Starling is not. Not that Starling is amazing, but he has been much more consistent.

    all that said since we have tanny and he's shown well i haven't paid much attention to the qb crop anymore... don't need to...feels great
    I agree. This is the first year in a long, long time that I haven't paid much attention to the quarterbacks. Miami will have to find a backup, though, unless Devlin is better than I think.

    Absolutely, his tendancy to take disastrous angles and undisciplined play drops him down a little more for me. His playmaking ability and rare ball skills prevents me from dropping him further.

    Keep hearing Lester as someone who could fall quite a bit come draft day. Slim and others what are your thoughts on Lester?
