Derwin James hailed as best safety in draft

NFL Dallas

Having not shown any interest in free agents, the Cowboys could potentially have to fill a safety slot if Byron Jones makes the move to corner back

That’s where Derwin Jones comes into play.

The Florida State star isn’t expected to fall to No. 19 in the NFL Draft, but Dallas could trade up for the first time since 2012 (Morris Claiborne).

Jones is extremely versatile, as he can cover from the slot and play linebacker, if needed.

As a Seminole, Jones came away with 186 tackles and three picks.

Experts have determined Jones is the best safety in this year’s draft class.
