Tyler Sash, SS, Iowa

One of the premiere underclassmen at the safety position is the University of Iowa's Tyler Sash. In his first two seasons, he had 11 interceptions combined. Sash is receiving a lot of consideration from All-American teams and award watch lists.

Sash has good speed and adequate size for the position, although he will need to add some weight when making the transition to the NFL.

His biggest asset as a safety is simply having great instincts and awareness for being in the right position at the right time. Sash is terrific in zone coverage and a more than capable tackler. Like most college safeties, he struggles in man to man coverage and lacks proper technique, but these are things that can be coached up in the NFL. He has a tendency to play downhill and tackles with a reckless abandon at times. Sash must continue to develop some of the finer tackling techniques rather than rely on collision tackling.

Sash's athleticism makes him a candidate to leave early, although this year's safety class is very thin and anyone can make a name for themselves overnight.

Tyler Sash officially declared early for the 2011 NFL Draft and projects as a third to fourth round selection.
