2014 NFL Draft Rankings: Safety
The Eagles need a safety, or two. Josh Collacchi takes a look at the best safeties in this year's class.
We all know the Eagles have not had a good safety since the one and only Brian Dawkins, but it is not so easy to fill those shoes. He is one of the best players at his position in the history of the game. Alas, until we have a safety worthy of starting in the NFL, we will long for another Dawkins. Here are the top safeties in this year's class. This includes both FS and SS, since the Eagles need one or the other, or both.
There is a lot more tape to be watched, but here are the preliminary rankings.
|1||Deone Bucannon||Washington State|
|3||Lamarcus Joyner||Florida State|
|6||Terrence Brooks||Florida State|
|12||Ty Zimmerman||Kansas State|
|13||C.J. Barnett||Ohio State|
|15||Jimmie Ward||Northern Illinois|
