Cyprien may be a good coverage guy for a SS, but I question his deep coverage skills as a FS. There doesn't seem to be an Eric Berry, Earl Thomas type pure ball hawk in the top half of the draft.
I am kind of warming to the idea of Eric Reid, but then I saw this:
Player Comparison: LaRon Landry Reid's game resembles Landry more than anybody else, but Landry is much better in pass coverage. Like Landry, Reid is a hard hitter who is a good run-defender. Both players are physical and never shy away from contact. Landry was a high first-rounder, while Reid looks to be a second-day pick.
