Same here! Good leadership qualities and talent. The niners have said they want their safeties to be interchangeable and Reid/Williams might be a good match. Both are physical but fast enough to play down-field.
I have a feeling we will take a 2nd safety b4 this draft is over....whitner is done after this year and this is a deep draft of talented safeties so it makes sense for us to load up for our future at safety for the next few yrs right now.
I wouldn't be surprised if we took Dj Swearinger or someone else in the 2nd or 3rd rd here today
Reid and Cyprien would make for a unique duo in the future. They have basically the same build and similar athleticism so the interchangeable safety thing would definitely apply. It's not going to happen but I'd be happy if it did. I think there will be a safety in the sixth or seventh round to compete with guys like Trenton Robinson for the last safety spot.

This, especially at NT. Contrary to that, it's the first draft for years with a relatively good/deep Safety-class. Who knows when this occassion will appear again...
Double-dip? Why not!!!
