Alfie's Player Ranking 87 out of 100
Projected Round: 3-4
Today continues my countdown to the Top 100 draftable players of the 2011 NFL Draft. We move on to my 87th ranked player, Iowa safety Tyler Sash.
PROS: Very productive from the get go. Has a knack for the football and making a big play. Always around the football, 13 career interceptions in only 3 seasons. Durability isn’t an issue. Leader on and off the football field. Doesn’t miss many tackles and wraps up well.
CONS: Will struggle in man coverage and overall speed is a question. Might need to add 5-10 pounds at the next level. Can get caught standing still in play fakes. Might be limited to the traditional strong safety role in the NFL.
