Take for example USC safety Taylor Mayes, long the poster child of this class among football betting fans. Some mock NFL draft boards have him going as high as the top ten; others have him dropping as far as the third round of the NFL draft. Many NFL gambling experts were horrified by Mayes inability to cover top quality receivers at the Senior Bowl and the lack of his lateral movement skills. Yet, football wagering needs only watch the tape from his outstanding college football betting career to know that this guy can play.

Other prospects like Tennessee’s Eric Berry are all but guaranteed to go in the top 5 or ten picks of the NFL draft and will almost certainly go on to be stars in the NFL betting action. But the interesting thing about this safety class is that for most of the top prospects NFL betting opinions vary widely.

With importance of the safety position only continuing to rise as teams in the NFL betting action convert to 3-4 defenses and incorporate zone blitzes, many teams will looking to upgrade at this spot in the 2010 NFL draft. It will be interesting to see which players shine on draft day and which shine in the NFL betting competition once the season starts.
