Eric Reid, S, LSU
Michael Griffin is a good player, but he has only been franchised, and I'm not sure he is worth the money that it would cost to keep him.
I'd imagine he would be looking for Michael Huff money.
Eric Reid is better than Mark Barron and is the best safety prospect since Eric Berry in 2010.
Morris Claiborne and Tyrann Mathieu have overshadowed his ability, but I hope he steps up in a big way this year and shows his abilities.
Reid has great size at 6'2" and 210 lbs and has a great blend of athletic ability and smarts.
He is one of the hardest hitters in college football, and every receiver hears footsteps around them for the rest of the game following one of his hits.
As well as being great in run support, Reid also has great coverage ability. He is a true ball hawk in the middle of the field and uses his great hands to pluck balls out of the air even when it seems impossible.
Good tackling from safeties in the NFL seems to be a dying art, and that is why I think that Reid's value will skyrocket come next April.
Whether the Titans are looking for a safety capable of playing in the box or one who can sit back in the deep third of the field and prey on quarterbacks, they can't miss with Reid.
Reid is one of my highest-rated prospects for next year, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him go in the Top 10 if he has a stellar year.
