Early reviews from the professional scouts are that the top free safeties for the 2009 player draft are both game tested and highly talented. Take an early look at the players on the back end who will impact at the professional level in the immediate future.

Missouri Tiger safety William Moore is today as prepared to play at the professional level as any college safety I have seen in a decade. I love his size, athletic ability, playing range, instincts and playing consistency. Look for him barring injury to become an lottery selection in next April's player draft.

Troy Nolan of the U. of Arizona via JUCO was a very pleasant surprise for the Wildcats. He has range, playing instincts and big play making ability. Chris Clemons has been a very steady contributor for the past two seasons for the Clemson Tigers and I don't believe he has reached his ceiling as a player.

Both Courtney Green of Rutgers and Derek Green of Mississippi State have a chance of becoming something very special as they lead their respective defenses. Keep your eye on Lendy Holmes of Oklahoma, Rashad Johnson of Alabama and Curtis Taylor from LSU, three players who could impact in 2008.
