Hmm, I'm gonna just be honest. He looks like a great college player who won't be a right fit for the NFL. He seems more like a guy with NFL safety skills playing in a nickle/corner's body. As great as he looks, I get it, I'll be surprised if he's a first round pick...jmo.

Forcing fumbles and everything is great but Peanut Tillman does that aswell. His size will hurt him when big rushers come downhill against him. In the end size does matter in the big leagues. Ask Bob Sanders, he was bigger, great player but had a short career. I think the whole tweener thing will work against him aswell.
He is an electric player but being a top three or even top ten choice is a little far fetched for me.
can any1 name a safety that has shut down gronk? i don't think that person exists.
Even so, bigger TEs give our team fits.
At least with a new, bigger Safety you have more versatility -- he can line up on a TE at the LOS and jam him or you can play him off the line or blitz or w/e. Seems like a smaller safety is more limited in where you line him up and might not be as helpful in challenging deep passes down the sideline.
I can live with a below 6' safety easy, but it's a bit much when he is in that 5'8" range. Just my opinion
