Tony Jefferson*, S, Oklahoma Height: 5-10. Weight: 212. Projected 40 Time: 4.49. Projected Round (2013): 1. 9/15/12: Jefferson started the year strong with 10 tackles and a pass broken up against UTEP. He had one tackle against Florida A&M. Oklahoma has a bye week before a big game against Kansas State. 9/2/12: Jefferson has been a play-maker and leader of the Sooners' defense since he arrived in Norman. Jefferson was the Big XII Freshman of the Year in 2010. He started nine games and recorded 65 tackles with seven tackles for a loss, two sacks, two interceptions and seven passes broken up. Jefferson was even better last year. The sophomore had 74 tackles with four interceptions, 4.5 sacks, 7.5 tackles for a loss, three passes broken up and one forced fumble. Jefferson is an excellent pass-defender who covers a lot of ground in the deep part of the field. He does a good job of picking up receivers running deep and has the athletic ability to play man coverage on tight ends. Jefferson is solid in run support. The athletic and instinctive safety has a high ceiling and could be in store for another big season or two for the Sooners. Jefferson is a difference-maker and a regular generator of splash plays. He has added some bulk this offseason and that should appeal to NFL evaluators.

Looks like he overtook Eric Reid as the top safety of the draft, sounds like a true FS to me. Me want.

I thought his stock was dropping. Looks like he's projected to go lower.

Jefferson or Lester are the two guys I'm looking at at Safety.

Fast, good cover guys who can cover a lot of distance and make plays on the ball.

The more and more I see of Reid, whom I like, the more I see box safety, and McDonald seems to be caught out of position an awful lot.

Jefferson is a great cover safety but he isn't much of a sure tackler. Not a big guy either. I haven't noticed Lester much this season but I remember liking him quite a bit more than Barron.

The guy I really want to see is Bacarri Rambo. He was looking like a flat out stud at FS. Not to mention he has a cool name.

Would prefer a safety that can tackle first and foremost. Then if they can cover too awesome. Also would like a safety to be a leader back there. Give me Swearinger.. please and thank you.

This is the dumbest thing you've ever said.

"Hey, Hurndawg brah, it's me, Ozzie Newsome I'm gonna make you an offer you can't refuse."

"What is it this time Ozzie? I told you. I don't want Secondary players that can cover! Gotta get me some strong run-stuffers so I can shut down the ever increasing potency of NFL rushing attacks!!"

"Just hear me out brah, just hear me out. I'll give you Ed Reed straight up, for Sherrod Martin!"

"The heck? You kidding me dude? That midget? Martin is tall and stuff and MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, we drafted him. Don't call back."

"hey, Mr. Richardson, I did what you asked me to. Now please get the Browns on the line and ask them what it'd take to get Richardson off their hands. I'm gonna make me a sammich and being working up long term contract negotiations with Kenny Onatolu"

if that's the dumbest thing i've ever said i'm impressed. thought it would have been worse than that.

sure...the ONLY thing i want is a guy that is tall. doesn't matter if he can cover, tackle, catch, crap...i don't care if he sucks as long as he is tall.

if THAT is what you got from my post then you are far more ignorant than anyone could have ever have imagined.

who wouldn't want someone that had actual skills and talent? that stuff is a given, or it should be for anyone who doesn't need corks on their forks.

None of our safeties can tackle a downhill running back. Absolutely zero of them. Which is why I said I want a safety that's a better tackler than ballhawk.

Except your previous post contradicted everything you put in this post. You dismissed the player brought forth in the OP because he was under 6 feet, and didn't care to consider his talent or any of the things you mentioned just now.

That is a dumb, Hurneyesque move in the modern NFL. It is 2012 and the days of gearing to stop the run and control the clock are over and the Safety position is seeing its value skyrocket and a premium on talented Safeties are being demanded because of it.

Cool maybe i'm next in line for the job then. I for one am tired of bitching about godfrey and whoever else being run over by any back that weighs over 190. Safeties covering jobs are not as complicated as corner covering jobs. Which is why I said what I said. I would take a washed up minter over the baby back bullshit we have right now.
