    Having a tough time projecting a position for Gardner in the NFL ... which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Misses too many easy tackles. I think Florida planned on using him at corner but had to put him at S out of need. He looks like a hell of an athlete so I'm making an early prediction of corner at the next level but if he keeps learning the position and cleans up his sloppy tackling he could be a nice chess piece for a savvy coach. Ability to create turnovers is a +.

    Flashes all the time but it goes both ways. Keep developing and he could be very rich in the next few years.

    Early, but this Safety group looks weaker than 2017 and 2018 - though I like some of the Seniors.

    True free safeties arent easy to come by, and Nigel Warrior is on his way to becoming an elite free safety. Jeremy Pruitt is going to be even better for him.

    I watched his dad Dale Carter play for Tennessee and went on to be a heck of a pro in the NFL at cornerback. Warrior has elite burst, instincts, range and angles. I watched him get better and better last season.

    Impresses the heck out of me I know that.

    Deionte Thompson looks to be the rangiest safety I've seen in quite some time. He made some similar plays on film in the National Championship game against Georgia that displayed such range it almost tricked your eye - but on the interception vs Louisville Saturday night, he showed it again. He was several yards inside the hash when the ball was thrown from a strong armed quarterback - and got all the way over to the sideline to make the pick in the endzone when the ball was just inside the 30 yard line.

    Also the most physical safety in the country. Thompson's combination of elite range and physicality have the makings of a top 10-15 pick.
