Obviously with the mess we're throwing into the safety equation this year there is a high probability that we will be drafting a safety high in the 2013 draft. (Ken is still crying in regards to Markelle Martin) But who are some of the targets the Skins could be looking at, especially in the second round?

Tony Jefferson, Oklahoma: Jefferson is right in gray area of being a first or second round prospect, it's important to remmeber how much things will change over the course of the season. Jefferson is very versatile and has played safety, the nickle, and even has spent some time as a linebacker for the Sooners.

T.J. McDonald, USC: McDonald is coming back for his senior year at USC for a shot at the national championship. The one word to describe McDonald is "solid". He especially excels at covering tight ends, which is obviously becoming more and more of a priority in today's NFL.

Ray Ray Armstrong, Miami: You can't help but like a guy named Ray Ray. It was thought Armstrong would enter the 2012 NFL Draft, but the Hurricane decided to return to Coral Gables to continue to polish his game. Armstrong is very talented but was suspended four games last year for the whole Miami booster scandal.

Robert Lester, Alabama: When you start examining the 2013 Draft and remember who left the Crimson Tide last year, it's easy to see why Nick Saban's defense was a monster last year. Lester is yet another guy that has decided to return for his senior year. Lester was a bit of a ball hawk early in his career at Alabama and fits the mold of a "center field" type safety.

Bacarri Rambo, Georgia: Baccari Rambo has all the talent in the world (and another awesome name), but can he keep his head on straight? The All-American will miss the first four games of his senior season due to a failed drug test. There was also a thought that he would file for the supplemental draft this summer.
