Best NFL Safeties of the 2018-2019 Season


The Top Ten

1 Harrison Smith Harrison Smith Harrison Smith is an American football safety for the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League.

He is so good

''The NFL's best all-around safety with the range and size to hang tough against elite tight ends when called upon in coverage. Joined Buffalo's Jordan Poyer as the league's only defenders with at least 70 tackles, one sack and five interceptions in 2017.'' - htoutlaws2012

2 Earl Thomas III Earl Thomas III Earl Thomas III is an American football safety for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League.

''Didn't skip a beat last year after suffering a broken leg late in the 2016 season. Ranks second among all safeties in interceptions since 2011 with 20.'' Now the question is what do you do if your Pete Carroll can you keep this talented player, or is he gonna move onto another team, or retire like Kam Chancellor? - htoutlaws2012

3 Eric Berry Eric Berry James Eric Berry, nicknamed "The Fifth Dimension," is an American football safety for the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League.

''The Chiefs defense never recovered after Berry was lost for the season with a torn Achilles tendon in Week 1 against New England. His return is essential to boost a unit that ranked 28th in yards allowed.'' Yeah when he went down that was a devastating blow to the Chief's defense, and it showed. - htoutlaws2012

4 Micah Hyde Micah Hyde

''The Bills made one of the best free agent acquisitions in recent seasons when they signed Micah Hyde. Hyde played a key role in ending the Bills’ horrendous playoff drought, and he could be even better this season. Letting Hyde walk has been a disaster for the Packers.'' - htoutlaws2012

5 Malcolm Jenkins Malcolm Jenkins Malcolm Jenkins is an American football safety for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League.

''Kept the Eagles' defense strong as it navigated through growing pains at cornerback and the loss of linebacker Jordan Hicks (Achilles). Known for big plays with four interception returns for touchdowns since signing with Philadelphia in 2014.'' Heck of a player, but more you protest is gonna put you much lower than it should be. - htoutlaws2012

6 Kevin Byard Kevin Byard

''Shame on Deion Sanders for not recognizing the name of one of the NFL's top young safeties. Byard came into his own in his second NFL season, tying for the league lead in interceptions with eight.'' - htoutlaws2012

he's fast

7 Tyrann Mathieu Tyrann Mathieu Tyrann Devine Mathieu is an American football safety for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League.

''Signing Tyrann Mathieu at the price the Texans did was one of the best moves of the offseason. He will be in the All-Pro discussion at the end of the season, as long as he can stay healthy. HIs versatility is a huge reason why he is in the top five of these rankings. Don’t sleep on “Honey Badger”.'' I'm not his gonna make the Texans secondary a lot more difficult to go on the deep ball this season. - htoutlaws2012

8 Haha Clinton-Dix Haha Clinton-Dix Ha'Sean Treshon "Ha Ha" Clinton-Dix is an American football free safety for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

He stepped in last years terrible passing defense, and a guy who has been solid for the Packers, and almost never hurt so far which is impressive if you ask me even if his name sounds hilarious. - htoutlaws2012

9 Jamal Adams Jamal Adams

''Adams was one of the best safeties to come out of college in recent seasons, primarily due to his leadership abilities and intelligence as a football player. Adams lived up to the hype in his rookie season, and I believe that the safety pairing of Adams with Marcus Maye will get a lot better this season thanks to the addition of Tremaine Johnson to the Jets secondary.'' - htoutlaws2012

10 Eddie Jackson Eddie Jackson

The most dangerous safety 2018-19

The Contenders

11 Keanu Neal Keanu Neal

''No defensive back has forced more fumbles in his first two seasons (eight) since Dave Whitmore in 1990-91. A sure-handed tackler as well with 113 stops in 2017.'' Hard hitter who coughed up most footballs in his two years not too bad if you ask me. - htoutlaws2012

12 D. J. Swearinger

Top Saftey in NFL 2018-19 season for Redskins.
