2015 Safety Rankings: September version

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

If the massive free agent contracts of Jairus Byrd, T.J. Ward, and Donte Whitner in free agency have taught us anything, it’s that NFL teams take great value in the safety position. In order to stop the increasingly popular passing offense, defenses must have a do it all athlete in the back of their secondary. Free safeties are seen as more coveted because of their ability to match up to receivers one on one. Strong safeties typically see more action in the box and covering tight ends. (more…)

There are few kickers or punters that get drafted, and even less than that are desirable enough to take in an early round like Sebastian Janikowksi, Ray Guy, or Mike Nugent, but even so scouts must keep their eyes open for the next big leg. Nothing is more important than points, and a great kicker means an automatic three points. The second most important thing in football is field position, and having an elite punter can make it much easier to win that aspect of the game. (more…)

The middle/inside linebacker position is equivalent to the running back on offense. When it comes to the Draft there is not much hype and few are taken early, but when you find a gem they can no doubt take your team to the next level. Impact players like Luke Kuechly, Ray Lewis, and Brian Urlacher are few and far between but that doesn’t stop scouts from looking. The 2015 class appears to be a downgrade compared to 2014, but there are some versatile guys that can play on all three downs. This positional list will be narrowed down to five, because rarely are more taken in the NFL Draft, and I also left off the key games. These players are the leaders of their respected defenses and they have to play at a high level each week. (more…)
