Atlanta Falcons: Five potential safeties from 2016 NFL Draft
SS Josh Harvey-Clemons, Louisville – 6’5 230 lbs
JHC is a unique draft prospect. At 6’5 230 lbs, Harvey – Clemons has NFL size already. Along with that size comes elite length. JHC could be a very valuable asset to the defense as he can provide more size in the box. JHC is not known for his downfield coverage but he isn’t that bad. Better in coverage than you think, as it was evident in his first game as a Louisville Cardinal where he posted two INTS. Not known for his speed but in reality, neither was William Moore.

Many may see JHC and feel that he may have a future as a weak-side linebacker and in certain schemes, that may actually be the case. However, I truly believe Quinn can take Harvey-Clemons and mold him into a big, intimidating safety. The presence of JHC will be valuable when it comes to playing big QBs such as Newton and Winston every season.
