Thanks for the write up, looks like Safety is the area of concern as expected...

It was exposed by weak coverage and missed assignments but linebackers as well...hopefully we can get some answers there as well

I thought safety should have been more of a priority in the last cycle, but Mullen said on NSD that they liked what they had back there.

Now, it could have been like a GM on draft day, they say that they are thrilled with what they got, well, because they got what they got.

Myself, and I said it then, I think UF needed a talent upgrade at the position. Yes, Stiner has made some big plays, but he isn't a top tier SEC safety. Taylor is a liability in coverage.

Exactly, which is why I was wondering if Steele would be used more as a Free Safety once Wilson is back, even as a freshman his coverage is A+ and he hits hard...question would be if he can adjust to the scheme, which is much harder to do as a safety than a corner.

Disappointing to see Stewart's grade, was hoping he would take a huge step forward this spring and take control of that starting position....
