CFN Preseason Third Team All-America Safeties

6. Andre Cisco, Soph. Syracuse

Sometimes the recruiting rankings don’t tell everything. Cisco was a strong recruit for Syracuse, but it wasn’t like he was a five-star must-have with a whole lot of interest from the big guys. All he did was step in as a true freshman and make 60 tackles with seven picks. The 6-0, 198-pound All-American also earned all-star honors in the classroom, too.

5. Caden Sterns, Soph. Texas

The sky’s the limit for the 6-1, 210-pound prototype NFL safety prospect. He stepped right in and became an instant force for the Longhorn defense with 62 tackles with four interceptions and eight broken up passes. He’s got the wheels and the instincts to get behind the line from time-to-time, too.

CFN Preseason Second Team All-America Safeties

4. Richie Grant, Jr. UCF

A ball-hawking machine, the 6-0, 194-pounder started out with a strong freshman season and followed it up with a phenomenal sophomore campaign. He might not be all that big, but he led the Knights with 109 tackles on the year – he seemed to be on everything in the open field – with six interceptions and three forced fumbles.

3. JR Reed, Sr. Georgia

With Reed combining with Richard LeCounte, the secondary will be one of Georgia’s biggest strengths. The 6-1, 194-pound Reed started out his career at Tulsa, transferred over, and has been fantastic ever since, coming up with 145 tackles, four picks, and 11 broken up passes in his first two years.

CFN Preseason First Team All-America Safeties

2. Jordan Fuller, Sr. Ohio State

Is he healthy enough to play? After missing the offseason with an undisclosed injury, he’s been cleared to go, and now the Buckeyes have their main man and leader back in the secondary. The 6-2, 205-pounder is smart, tough, and steady, making 151 tackles – leading the team with 81 stops last season – with 5.5 tackles for loss and three picks over the last two years.

1. Grant Delpit, Jr. LSU

If he’s not the nation’s top defensive player coming into the season, he’s in the team photo. The 6-3, 203-pound safety is versatile, steady, and as he showed last season with five interceptions, dangerous. He led the team with 74 tackles after coming up with 60 as a freshman, and he has 17 broken up passes over his first two years. He’s got the range and hitting ability to do just about anything a defense needs, and in late April of next year, it’ll take an early first roundl pick for some NFL team to land him.
