2019 NFL Scouting Combine
Safety workouts at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine were cut short because of the asinine Rich Eisen 40 yard dash. Who make an impact in the limited footage we were able to see? (Joe Robbins/Getty Images)

It’s the final day of the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine. Cornerbacks and safeties will lead the charge today. It’s an exciting day because both positions are up for grabs. There isn’t one player or a group of players that have really solidified themselves prior to the combine. This post I’m going to be focusing on the safeties. If you haven’t read the previous posts, I encourage you to do so. You won’t find better combine information on the internet. I can promise you that.

Take a look who stood out for better or worse for safeties at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine!

Well, before I get started, I just wanted to mention the fact that the safety footage was cut short. But why? Well, NFL Network and Rich Eisen is an asshole. Instead of airing footage of the players that mothers, fathers, grandparents, teammates, and myself want to see which safeties shine at the combine, instead, we were forced to watch that bald egotistical asshole run a 40 yard dash in a suit.

Big Hitter Abram

The one safety that I kind of liked in this class is John Abram. He just smacks people in the mouth every single time I saw him play. Abram ran a 4.45 which is good for the position. We only saw one rep of his out on the field. Abram looks like a complete safety.

Boston College

The two BC guys are really good. They just give me flashbacks to John Johnson coming out a few years ago. I don’t know what that program is doing but it works. Lukas Denis and Will Harris both showed quick and awesome footwork.

Miami

The Miami guys are completely different from each other. Jaquan Johnson is more of an in the box safety (or at least moved like it) but didn’t weight that much (169). Really tight in his movement skills. Sheldrick Redwine is more of the matchup guy. 4.44 speed and quick. He did have an odd stance to him but that’s not a huge deal.

Best Of the Group

I thought Darnell Savage is really making a name for himself. 4.36 speed is flying for a safety. He won a ton of one on one battles at the Senior Bowl and really continued that awesome momentum. Savage was by far the best with changing directions and movement skills. Super quick feet and covered a ton of ground.

Other notes

Ugo Amadi had an awesome rep in the Abram clip above. Excellent for a safety to flip his hips like that. Showed that he is an easy knee bender. Juan Thornhill tested off the charts. A 44 inch vert is insane. He had some issues slipping on a few occasions trying to flip his hips but the speed and athletic traits are outstanding. Chauncey Gardner-Johnson was really narrow in his stance. Often times found himself on his heels. Not a great day for him. John Battle was really high waisted. Not a great knee bender. Also ran a 4.68. That was kind of expected though. He is a box safety. Just wait until you see the free safety at LSU Grant Delpit. He f*cks.

Also want to mention Andrew Wingard and Zedrick Woods. Wingard moved much better than expected. He was constantly around the ball when I watched him a year ago scouting Josh Allen. I never heard of Woods but he ran a 4.29. Safeties are not supposed to do that. At some point, maybe Ole Miss just has really good players that we should pay attention to and aren’t getting coached the right way. How are they not winning?
