Ballard & Darnell Savage (Safety, Maryland)

Recommended Posts

You know how Ballard spoke about the value of guys who were exceptional at a few things and the importance of playmakers? Darnell Savage fits those criteria perfectly. He's a little small (5'11", 201) but his closing speed is RIDICULOUS and he pops on film. His head-on tackling is inconsistent, but his run and pass fits are great, and he can tackle fine from an angle. Thing is, I hear almost nothing about him. Am I just too high on this guy or is he buried behind other safety prospects?

The safety class is deep this year. I personally haven’t seen Savage’s tape yet.

He did say that the safety class was really deep this year. I wouldn't be surprised if he drafted two safety's. 1 in the first 3 rounds and 1 with projectable skills later on.

If its late Day 2 and they still don't have a Safety, he's in the running. Late 3rd round kind of guy. At that point, he'd be a nice pickup.
