Anybody who thinks taking a safety in the 1st round is a good idea is a fool. Safety is one of those lower value positions.... like TE, ILB, OG, K. Aside from the rare athlete (Willis, VD, etc) these are not good value picks in the 1st round because there are so many guys out there that can play those positions well. It is far harder to find good DL, OT, QB, CB, etc. That's why you draft those positions early, cause if you wait you may not be able to find someone thats any good.
Take a safety; we have freaking Dahl as our starting FS right now. He isn't even close to what Goldson was to our defense. Unless we get Namndi or Woodson draft someone for our weak secondary that our offense actually carried in the playoffs.
Jim's at BYU pro day right now. Ziggy anyone? Not at 31 of course, but with all their draft picks to maneuver whose to say. I mean he thought Kap was best QB in '11 draft, maybe he thinks Ziggy is the best DL prospect 2013.
