2011 NFL Draft: Safety Rankings

Published on January 27, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

  1. Deunta Williams, FS, North Carolina
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
    Projected Round (2011): Top 25 Pick.

    10/9/10: Williams is done with his suspension and debuts this week against Clemson.

    5/14/10: Deunta Williams was an All-ACC First Team member, thanks to 47 tackles, eight pass break-ups and six interceptions.

  2. Rahim Moore*, FS, UCLA
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 197.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
    Projected Round (2011): 2.

    10/9/10: Moore has not impressed me this year. I know he has talent, but the bottom line is he is not producing and has been burned several times. He needs to step up.

    5/14/10: Rahim Moore picked off a whopping 10 passes in addition to his seven break-ups in 2009.

  3. DeAndre McDaniel, S, Clemson
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.43.
    Projected Round (2011): 2.

    10/9/10: McDaniel hasn’t played like a first-round pick. He showed terrible awareness giving up a couple touchdowns to Miami last week, and I’m really down on him this season. Disappointing.

    5/14/10: DeAndre McDaniel is an impressive athlete and can play either safety position. He collected a whopping eight interceptions in 2009 to go along with his 98 tackles, 6.5 TFL and two sacks.

  4. Mark Barron*, SS, Alabama
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 215.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.61.
    Projected Round (2011): 2-3.

    10/9/10: I’ve seen a lot of inconsistency out of Barron on tape, but he’s the hardest hitting safety in the entire nation. He’ll really flash, and then he’ll take bad angles or be late to the ball.

    5/14/10: A pure strong safety, Mark Barron broke up 11 passes as a junior. He also had 74 tackles and seven interceptions.

  5. Jeron Johnson, SS, Boise State
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 194.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2011): 3-4.

    10/9/10: Johnson takes very solid angles and has a high football IQ. He’s instinctive and is reliable in run support. He isn’t an explosive athlete, but he might be able to start in the NFL at strong safety.

    5/14/10: Jeron Johnson, an All-WAC second-teamer, had 91 tackles, six pass break-ups and four interceptions in 2009.

  6. Will Hill*, FS, Florida
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 202.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.53.
    Projected Round (2011): 3-4.

    5/14/10: Will Hill rotated in the starting lineup with Major Wright last year, which is why he had only 42 tackles and one pass break-up as a sophomore. He’ll be the full-time starter in 2010.
  7. Ahmad Black, S, Florida
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 185.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
    Projected Round (2011): 3-5.

    10/9/10: Black is a strong safety only at the next level, and his size hurts his 2011 NFL Draft stock.5/14/10: An All-SEC honorable mention, the compact Ahmad Black collected 70 tackles and five passes broken up last year.
  8. Nate Williams, S, Washington
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 213.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2011): 3-5.

    10/9/10: Williams has been very consistent this year for Washington. He always seems to be around the ball and I really love his on-field leadership.
  9. Quinton Carter, FS, Oklahoma
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 193.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.53.
    Projected Round (2011): 3-5.

    5/14/10: Quinton Carter, a member of the All-Big XII Second Team, had 88 tackles, five passes broken up and four interceptions in 2009.
  10. Jaiquawn Jarrett, FS, Temple
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 195.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2011): 3-5.

    10/9/10: Jarrett is a thumper at strong safety with great instincts – he’s a competitor, but he lacks range in pass protection and has below-average speed.

    5/14/10: As a member of the All-MAC First Team, Jaiquawn Jarrett collected 76 tackles, seven pass break-ups and three picks in 2009.

  11. Chris Culliver, FS/KR, South Carolina
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
    Projected Round (2011): 4-6.

    5/14/10: Qualifying for the All-SEC Second Team, Chris Culliver notched 62 tackles, three TFL and nine pass break-ups as a junior.
  12. Shiloh Keo, SS/PR, Idaho
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 211.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2011): 4-6.

    5/14/10: Shiloh Keo was very productive in 2009, notching 109 tackles, five pass break-ups and four TFL. He was also a very effective punt returner.
  13. Chris L. Rucker, FS/CB, Michigan State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 195.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2011): 4-6.

    5/14/10: Plays corner at Michigan State, but will probably have to move to free safety in the NFL. Chris L. Rucker broke up seven passes in 2009 and was voted as an All-Big Ten honorable mention. He was also part of a 10-player suspension that stemmed from an on-campus fight, but that’s not a big deal.
  14. Duke Ihenacho, SS, San Jose State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.62.
    Projected Round (2011): 5-7.

    5/14/10: Duke Ihenacho had 89 tackles, six passes broken up and 2.5 TFL in 2009.
  15. Brian Lainhart, FS, Kent State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 207.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2011): 5-7.

    5/14/10: An All-MAC first-teamer, Brian Lainhart collected 86 tackles, four pass break-ups and seven interceptions as a junior.

    Projected Round (2011): 5-7.

    5/14/10: Playing nickel last season, Jermale Hines had 57 tackles and 3.5 TFL. He’s projected to be a full-time starter as a senior.
  17. Eric Hagg, FS, Nebraska
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.56.
    Projected Round (2011): 5-7.

    5/14/10: An All-Big XII honorable mention, Eric Hagg recorded 40 tackles, 6.5 TFL and three pass break-ups last year.
  18. Tejay Johnson, SS, TCU
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 212.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.60.
    Projected Round (2011): 5-7.

    Projected Round (2011): 6-FA.

    Height: 6-1. Weight: 180.
