Best Florida safeties available 

December, 28, 2010
What Florida might lack at depth in natural cornerbacks this year it more than makes up for it with prospects at safety. Florida is loaded at the position this year and no team has cleaned up like Florida State. The Seminoles landed three of the state's top 10 safeties including the top-rated player nationally at the position Karlos Williams (Davenport, Fla./Ridge Community) and ESPNU 150 member Keelin Smith (Port St. Lucie, Fla./Treasure Coast).

It's never a surprise when Alabama grabs a top-flight defensive back and Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix (Orlando, Fla./Dr. Phillips) is as good as it gets.

Clemson, which has recruited running backs and defensive backs in Florida as well as anyone, scooped up rangy athlete Cortez Davis (Daytona Beach, Fla./Mainland) and retained him after a brief flirtation with Florida State. Jeremy Cash (Plantation, Fla./Plantation) struggled with injuries for much of the season, but when he is healthy he has as much natural ability as any player at his position.
