    Crazy stat: in 2015, Andrew Wingard and Marcus Epps accounted for 30% of all Wyoming solo tackles. Overall, I'm liking this Safety group - UC and Seniors.

    James is an incredible talent, but he has to show improvement in pass D. He likely will. Jordan Whitehead is nasty (better than Budda Baker imo), and Ronnie Harrison can do just about everything. Chase Hansen and Mike Edwards are also good all-around Safeties, but Harrison looks to have a different ceiling than those two.

    Ronnie Harrison has so much physical talent. He also does well when they move him to dime backer. He's going to be an outstanding NFL S/S

    Fitzpatrick or Derwin? For me I'm taking Fitzpatrick's ability to play all 5 positions in the secondary, and at an extremely high level. Quite honest, I'm not even sure what his best position is. It might be nickel.

    Weakness is man coverage. It wasn't even close if you try to match him up in single coverage vs. Evan Engram. He knows Saban's defense and he's good at utilizing the pattern match concepts instead of just standing there covering green grass in zone. He usually makes the tackle quickly when a receiver enters his zone.

    I'll take Derwin at safety. Minkah prefers to play CB as opposed to safety.

    I love Mike Edwards and Jermaine Whitehead. Justin Reid and DeShon Elliott really upped their games this year, and they're both making a ton of plays. For teams looking for Safeties who can cover, I like those four a lot. After a very strong 2017 Safety class, it's nice to see that 2018 should also be good - if a rung lower than 2017.
