The safety position is among the most vital on the football field, as the transition to more pass-heavy offenses mainly relies on this position. While there is still some time left before the 2016 NFL Draft, a good number of NFL franchises have already started the process of assessing their draft prospects in the safety position in the bid to bolster their performances in the football odds. Since safeties could be a hot commodity in the upcoming NFL Draft, here are some early top prospects in the country to watch out for in the remaining course of the current NCAAF odds season.
4. Jeremy Cash, Duke Blue Devils, Senior
Cash is a hybrid type of safety whose set of skills can translate favorably to the weak linebacker position. He has notched 16.5 tackles with three broken up passes so far this season. Cash is 6’2’’ and 215 pounds, but importantly has the ability to play up near the line of scrimmage and make big plays in the running game. He functions best as a strong safety than a free safety and is likely to be selected as a second-round pick, mainly depending on his effort in the remaining games of the season. Considering many NFL franchises will be looking for help at the back end of their secondary in the upcoming draft, we don’t see him sliding any lower than the second round.
