2013 NFL Draft: Jonathan Cyprien to visit the Jaguars, 10 other teams

USA TODAY Sports

The FIU safety has drawn comparisons to Dashon Goldson and is considered by some to be the best safety in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Former-Florida International safety Jonathan Cyprien has drawn plenty of interest during the pre-draft process and has 11 visits set up over the next month, according to Pro Football Talk, including one with the Jaguars. Also listed are the Falcons, Panthers, Redskins, Cowboys, Dolphins, Cardinals, Titans, Browns, 49ers and Texans.

Cyprien, 6-0, 217, is considered by many to be the best strong safety in the 2013 NFL Draft, and some even consider him to be the best in the class altogether, ahead of free safety Kenny Vaccaro of the Texas Longhorns. In his senior season with the Golden Panthers, Cyprien tallied four interceptions and 93 tackles, including several crushing hits in the secondary. He has drawn comparisons to San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldson for his blend of physicality and athleticism.

The Jaguars are in need of a strong safety after releasing Dawan Landry earlier in the offseason. While many are projecting the team to take a Kam Chancellor-type of large safety, Cyprien would be a very tough prospect for the Jaguars to pass up on if he's available when they are on the clock at pick 33.

In the latest mock draft from SB Nation's Dan Kadar and Matthew Fairburn, Cyprien is projected to be taken by the Cincinnati Bengals with pick 21 in the first round, just three selections after Vaccaro.
