First..I wouldn't be surprised at all if Amerson was there in the 2nd round (he's an ideal skillset for FS). Secondly..Matt Elam can't play FS? The guy is 5'10'' 202, ran a 4.42 forty, and plays against SEC receivers every week. What aspect of his game have you seen that makes you think he can't play free safety?
You know it's not that he can't play free safety, it's that I want to draft a guy that has been in that spot while in college. Elam is very versatile and athletic, don't get me wrong, I think that will eventually bump him into the first round. Lester is the guy I have no confidence in succeeding at the next level.
Amerson very well could be a solid FS at the next level, but once again the position change makes me uncomfortable. I think Amerson will be a late first round pick no doubt though.
Call me crazy but I really dislike this years safety class, though there are some really intriguing prospects in the later rounds that could be dimes after playing a couple seasons as back up.
Ty Zimmerman and Zeke Motta (both white DB'S lol) are the kind of guys I want playing safety for us, both guys can be had in the 4th or 5th round.
