After the first two days of the NFL’s free agency period, the unusually large safety FA market is pretty picked over. The 2019 safety FA pool got PAID too. Headlining the group is Landon Collins, who left the New York Giants this week for a massive 6-year, $84 million deal with division rivals Washington Redskins, to tie Tyrann Mathieu’s new contract as the most expensive at the position.

Clemson has become a defensive lineman factory, but this year’s group is truly legendary. One of the true leaders of that defensive line was Clelin Ferrell, and he was one of the nations best defenders in 2018. Alongside other soon-to-be NFL rookies Dexter Lawrence, Christian Wilkins, and Austin Bryant, Ferrell was still able to wrangle 11.5 sacks and 20 tackles for a loss last season. Ferrell would go on to win ACC Defensive Player of the Year, the Ted Hendricks award, and become a back to back First Team All-American selection.
88 tackes, 21.5 TFL and 17 sacks in his senior season is all you need to know about Josh Allen. An elite pass rushing linebacker is exactly what the Raiders need after dealing Khalil Mack to the Bears and Jon Gruden did say he needed a pass rusher more than anything coming into the offseason. Expect Josh Allen to fall into the Raiders lap and for him to be an All-Pro for years to come.
The Miami Dolphins are hitting the rebuild button and trying to find success in any way possible, but the big question this offseason is what the Dolphins want to do in the draft. Well I’m going to dig deep down into this sticky situation and solve the problem for the Miami Dolphins organization.

Greg Little was a part of Allen’s crazy run from ‘12-’15, and was one of the nations most coveted recruits in 2015. That is why it was perfect for him to go to Ole Miss, and succeed one of the most coveted offensive tackles in the country, Laremy Tunsil. Once landing in Oxford, Little was immediately thrown into the battlefield, checking into every game he played as a Rebel. By his sophomore year, he was a full time starter, and performing magnificently at his position. In ‘17 he was named All-SEC Second Team and followed it up with an All-SEC First Team bid this past season. In ‘18 the Rebels offense was deadly, leading the SEC in total offensive yards and ranking 5th across the entire nation. In October of last season, Greg Little helped block for a Rebel’s offense that put up 826 yards against ULM, which is the 2nd most yards ever recorded by an SEC offense. Later that month, Little continued his great blocking, helping Jordan Ta’amu’s 528 total yard performance, which is the 2nd most total yards by a player in school history. Ole Miss has been pushing out a lot of NFL talent, and Greg Little could be one of the better prospects produced from Oxford, Mississippi. One lucky quarterback is most likely going to be smiling when he knows Little has been drafted to guard his pocket.
