Those are two very solid players. I'm not particularly fond of either, but that's about the talent level at those positions I project at that draft range. I think those two would be excellent value for us.
As for Free v. Strong Safety, they're interchangeable in schemes. At 5'11, 215lbs with 113 Tackles, Jefferson is a traditional Strong Safety in the NFL. He's eerily similar to Cleveland's stud safety, TJ Ward.
Kenny Stills reminds me a lot of former NY Giants WR Steve Smith. He was a devastating WR in the slot and outside before injuries destroyed his career.
And with Minter, you're hoping for Karlos Dansby.
I mean, if we can pull Dansby, Ward, and Smith from the first three rounds of the draft, I would hope that wouldn't depress you.
