I like cyprien more than reid swearinger or wilcox. He misses tackles but so do the rest of these guys. Swearinger isnt very strong in coverage. Hes a good tackler but he lunges.and gets a lot of penalties. Cyprien is a great deep fielder. He reads the qb and can make a play on the ball. His tackling is actually pretty good but it needs work. He actually has the highest celing if he can stay focused refine his ability. Seach Johnathan cyprian vs Louisville for a good display of his talents.
I disagree....although only slightly. I think JJ Wilcox has a HUGE, HUGE ceiling. This guy went from being an offensive player to being a safety for a season and did a smash-up job. He's highly coachable and I'll be excited to follow him wherever he ends up in the NFL. Just a massive ceiling considering how raw he is. His coverage ability for a safety is also highly impressive, very quick feet, great lateral movement, outstanding hips for a safety.
Give me both and cross the safety position off the list for the next 4-5 years.
