Washington Redskins Draft Profiles: Dion Bailey, FS

Hogs Haven takes a look at NFL prospects heading into the 2014 draft

Dion Bailey

Free Safety

Height: 6' 0", Weight: 210 lbs

USC

Strengths: Bailey is a muscular safety who can cover bigger receivers. He's a ballhawk with great instincts and soft hands. In the run game, he's unselfish and is happy to take out blockers instead of making the play himself. He runs a 4.52 second 40 yard dash and finished the 2013 season with 5 interceptions and 62 tackles.

Weaknesses: His size could be a negative for Bailey. He is not the most physical safety and will often go for a pull-down rather than a tackle. While at USC, he played mostly zone coverage and has limited experience with man-to-man schemes.

Bottom Line: Bailey is an unselfish teammate. To be successful, he will need to boost his confidence and tackling ability. Good coaching at the next level can turn him into an excellent defensive back.

Projected Round: 4

Team He Fits Best On: Rams, Texans, Lions
