We're ranking the draft prospects by position this year, and we're doing it via polls. Today we're looking at the top 5 safeties: who would you list at the top of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' draft board, and who would you drop? You can rank the top 5 here -- we'll do 6-10 later, and maybe 11-15 even later.
The ultimate goal here is to get a serviceable list of prospects for the Bucs -- not just just for any NFL team, so keep that in mind. This has a minor effect here. The Bucs will emphasize coverage skills in safeties, but that's true for basically every NFL defensive scheme these days. They may shy away from strong safety prospects given the presence of Mark Barron and Major Wright on the roster, though.
Big thanks to Dawgs By Nature for putting this thing together.
So, vote and let us know how Bucs Nation thinks about the top safety prospects in the NFL. It'll be really interesting to see how the wisdom of crowds does compared to the Buccaneers themselves.
Here are the results for yesterday's cornerbacks poll.
