    Bessire: Safety Ranks and Proj.

    Last Updated: 10/14/2014 10:06 AM ET

    Projections for every ranked safety are below. Players are ranked based on PredictionMachine.com's 2013 projected statistics for what each player would be expected to do as a 16 game starter on a totally average NFL team against a completely average NFL schedule. Read more about how rankings and projections are done (also includes 2012 rankings and projections). See biographical and statistical data on each safety prospect here

    This year, we have added an impact score (0 - 10 scale) for each player that is a relative value based on the projections that can put players in context across positions and draft classes. In the score, a seven or above can generally outperform a replacement player in the NFL at his position as a rookie; an eight or above can be expected to start and a player with a rating over nine is a unique, standout player who could star.

    As a matter of context, at this time last year, using the same process leveraged for 2013 below (independent of actual drafting teams), the top five safeties last season had scores of: Harrison Smith (8.6), Winston Guy (8.0), Markelle Martin (7.9), Mark Barron (7.9), Robert Blanton (7.9).

    11/24/2014 Highlight: Using the ResultsFinder for the Week of November 17th - 23rd, one could find that all highlighted college football "normal" or better plays went 6-3 (67% ATS and O/U), highlighted by the Lock of the Week, Appalachian State (+10 vs. LA-Lafayette), winning outright, 35-16, to cover by four touchdowns. The Lock of the Week has won seven of the last eight weeks and is 22-7 (77% ATS) in the last two seasons. Against-the-spread, "normal" or better halftime plays in college football also were solid going 4-2 (67% ATS).

    While there have only been three "normal" NFL ATS full game picks in the last two weeks, normal or better NFL against-the-spread halftimes have provided additional value by going 6-1 (86% ATS) in Week 11 and Week 12. Over the last six weeks, all playable full game against-the-spread NFL picks are 39-26 (60% ATS). In that same stretch, "normal or better halftime picks in the NFL are 17-8 (68% ATS). All halftime picks are free for the week!

    Finally, in the NBA, all "normal" or better picks went 5-3 (63% ATS and O/U). And, on the ice, all normal NHL plays stayed strong once again returning a profit for the fourth straight week. In the last four weeks, all normal or better NHL picks are 66-44 (60% ML, O/U and PL).
