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.

Hitman Harry

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.

Best in the league


His speed, range, tackling ability kind of blow me away. To me he is a generational player. He is far better and more complete than Berry

''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 Jamal Adams Jamal Adams

You don't get to become President by not being at the head of the class

How are earl Thomas and Harrison smith higher? are people on crack?

Constantly all over the field, and nobody matches his energy at his position.

Changing jets defense forever

4 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

5 Eddie Jackson Eddie Jackson

No doubt the worst

Best cover corner. No doubt. And sic ball skills

His instincts and speed are as transformal to the Bears as Mack is. He is the key to the secondary allowing the corners to be ball hawks and making paying qbs doubt there abilities to hit a receiver

Next Ed Reed.

6 Micah Hyde Micah Hyde

Huge Dinger

''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

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

The Best. #FlyEaglesFly

This ironman of a leader played every single defensive snap this season. He is a great tackler, stops the run, can play in the box just as well as a linebacker, and of course clamps up in the secondary. The fact that he isn't one is a travesty

Great Leader and player. Most complete DB in NFL. BEST in the NFL! FLYEAGLESFLY

''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

8 Kevin Byard Kevin Byard

First off, Byard is by far a better ball hawk than 99% of the other safeties in the nfl. Leads the NFL in INT for the past two years. Nothing more needs to be said.

The most complete safety in the league. I truly watch him every Sunday. Goes 110 percent every play. Always in the right spot, has a knack for where the ball is. And is also a very good aggressive tackler. And a phenomenal leader.

''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

9 Tyrann Mathieu Tyrann Mathieu Tyrann Devine Mathieu is an American football safety for the Houston Texans 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

10 Derwin James Derwin James

Stats speaks for itself, easily top 5 in the league

3 sacks 3 picks and over 90 tackles best

Top 5

The Contenders

11 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

12 Jabrill Peppers Jabrill Peppers

He is one of the greatest young safeties in the league and now apart of a great organization and he is on pace to become the best safety in the league. If he continues to play at this level, the New York football Giants will make it to the superbowl next year.

13 Devin McCourty Devin McCourty
14 Adrian Amos

Great Safety for the Bears

15 Keanu Neal Keanu Neal

Fearless classic NFL hard hitting, great tackling safety. Can make moves on the ball.

''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

16 Landon Collins Landon Collins Landon Collins is an American football safety for the New York Giants of the National Football League.

Dude is a stud!

17 Jordan Poyer Jordan Poyer
18 Darian Stewart
19 Eric Weddle Eric Weddle Eric Steven Weddle is an American football free safety for the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League.
20 Damontae Kazee

Serious ball hawk still developing his skills.

21 Xavier Woods Xavier Woods Austin Watson is an American professional wrestler currently signed to WWE under the ring name Xavier Woods.

Wrong Woods!

22 D. J. Swearinger

Firey, Intelligent... A player that endeavors to always "make a difference" and make informed defensive calls. He's a STUD!

Top Saftey in NFL 2018-19 season for Redskins.

23 Budda Baker Budda Baker
24 John Johnson III

Very good player so underrated

25 Eric Reid Eric Reid Eric Todd Reid is an American football safety for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League.
26 Patrick Chung

Has never gotten his just due respect yet he's an important cog in the Patriots machine! 10 yrs, 5 Superbowl appearances winning 3 but never been to a Pro Bowl invitee! I'd surely say he's been the most overlooked Patriot player!

27 Reggie Nelson
28 Vonn Bell

The most underrated safety in the league who is a key piece of this highly underrated saints defense. 88 total tackles,1 sack, 1 forced fumble,1 fumble recovery, and 3 passes defended. He is a hard-hitting, pass coverage run stopping safety.
