The ‘Safety Opposite of Harrison’ has been a much talked about position of need for the Minnesota Vikings since Smith came on board in 2012. We still haven’t found a suitable Robin for Harry the Hitman’s Dark Knight. Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) of eDraft and Cold Omaha is back again this week to chat about a few safeties in the draft who could be a damn good Dick Grayson.
Safety Karl Joseph commands more of the draft buzz than his secondary counterpart and fellow Mountaineers teammate K.J. Dillon, but Dillon’s size and understated traits make him an intriguing Vikings prospect in his own right. His experience at free safety, strong safety and the “Spur” position (hybrid safety/linebacker), along with his ability to play single-high as well as down low in the box, gives him the versatility Zimmer demands from the safety position.
