Not saying they're the best, but they're definitely my favorites:
1.) David Amerson - I think he'll make a great FS more so than a CB
2.) Eric Reid - Great overall athlete, even better person...Harbaugh type of player
3.) Shamarko Thomas - Shorter, but so is Earl Thomas and he's one of the best in the business.
4.) Sanders Commings - If he could/would only tackle, he'd be a 1st round DB. Talented enough to excel at either CB or FS
5.) Jakar Hamilton - Ex-Georgia Bulldog who's more of a SS and later round pick; tough, strong, athletic and fast
I like Shamarko Thomas because he is short.
But, we need a strong safety that has ball skills. Shamarko played in 48 games and defended a grand total of 7 passes.
JJ Wilcox who only played one year (14 games) at safety defended 5 passes.
