    Bessire: Safety Ranks and Projs.

    by Paul Bessire, General Manager, PredictionMachine.com

    Projections for every ranked defensive end and outside linebacker are below. Players are ranked based on PredictionMachine.com's 2014 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. See biographical and statistical data on each safety prospect here.

    Again this year, we have included an impact score (0 - 10 scale) for each player. This score is a relative value based on the projections that can put players in context across positions and draft classes. A score of 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 adequately 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, the top safeties had scores of: Phillip Thomas (8.1), Matt Elam (8.0), John Cyprien (7.4), Joshua Hill (7.4), Earl Wolff (7.3), Kenny Vaccaro (7.3).
