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.

    • It's possible, however, IF a high upside LT is not drafted then that bodes well for Garcia and/or an extension for Castonzo.    The coaching staff, as well as the front office know what they have in the building already.
    • Roemer late this year, and/or high pick next year. If we don't plan to resign him, why not get an extra rookie contract year out of high OT next year.
    • Many people on here are calling forca LT to be drafted as Castonzo is in his contract year and is pushing the 30+ threshold.   A large majority of folks forget about a low risk high reward free agent that Ballard signed in 2018 who spent the season on the Practice Squad in one Antonio Garcia from Troy by way of the Patriots.   He was drafted in the 3rd Round in 2017 as Nate Solders replacement. He developed some blood c.lot (it auto-corrects to Colts without the period) issues and lost roughly 70 lbs.   He has since regained strength and weight and is now being tutored by one of the best line coaches ever.   Here is the draft clip from that year, listen to the parallels in what Mayock has to say. Sounds exactly like a Colts player and exactly like the Colts current roster situation!   http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-draft/0ap3000000804395/Patriots-select-Antonio-Garcia-No-85-in-the-2017-NFL-Draft
    • he was drafted in the 4th.
    • Just did one with their board that I'd be ecstatic about.  4 rounds only.    26: R1P26 DL CHRISTIAN WILKINS CLEMSON   34: R2P2 S DARNELL SAVAGE MARYLAND   59: R2P27 OT KALEB MCGARY WASHINGTON   89: R3P25 WR MILES BOYKIN NOTRE DAME   129: R4P27 Te JACE STERNBERGER TEXAS A&M   135: R4P33 LB MACK WILSON ALABAMA
