The safety position is one of the most fun to evaluate. To see a great athlete use his field vision, speed, size and instincts to make plays versus the run and pass is fun to watch. In 2013, the safety class was one for the ages with prospects like Antonio Conner, Su'a Cravens, Max Redfield, Vonn Bell, Leon McQuay III and Keanu Neal.
The 2014 class has several great safety prospects as well, with Quin Blanding, Jamal Adams and Todd Kelly Jr. among many others. However, the class also includes standouts such as Edward Paris and Laurence Jones.
Both safeties are terrific prospects who should be difference-makers in college. As we continue our 5-star prospect scouting battle series, we will break down each seam-defender and decide who is better.
