The 2013 Draft and our Safety Situation

In the upcoming draft, I would be stunned if the front office decided not to upgrade the Safety position. In my opinion, both safeties need to be upgraded. Neither Mikell or Dahl should be a starter in this league. Dahl can walk away in free agency because his contract is up but Mikell will have a cap hit of $10M next season. I'd rather cut him and replace him with someone else.

My solution is very simple. It involves a position switch and two draft selections on defensive backs. First, I'd move Cortland Finnegan to free safety. I remember watching a press conference with Jeff Fisher and he said that Cortland would eventually be playing the safety position, and I don't see a better time in the future than now to make the move. Next, I'd use the Redskins pick on Eric Reid if he is available, or the next best safety if he is not. That would completely solve the safety position, but it would leave a hole at cornerback. We have Janoris Jenkins, who would end up being our #1 man. Next is Trumaine Johnson. But after that, I suggest that we use a 3rd or 4th round selection on a corner to either become our third man or push Johnson for the second position. I see no problem with that secondary, how about you guys?
