  • With Eric Berry’s status for 2015 up in the air, Ron Parker and Husain Abdullah should be able to hold things down in the position, but it definitely couldn’t hurt to add another safety to the roster. Cody Prewitt proved to be a reliable player for the Rebels during his four years there.

    "Prewitt is a four-year starter who has been a dependable and productive member of an improving unit at Ole Miss. His size screams “box safety” but his play demeanor doesn’t. He lacks the athleticism and plus instincts to be a chance-taker at the next level and will likely have to fit with teams as a single-high and Cover 2 safety. – NFL.com"

    Chase Goodbread of NFL.com wrote at the beginning of the month that he considered Cody Prewitt to be one of the five most physical corners in this year’s draft. Goodbread had this to say,

    "The former Rebels star built a well-earned reputation as an enforcer in the secondary. But while he can bring plenty of force on receivers over the middle, his open-field tackling isn’t quite as sure, as this dusting by Alabama’s T.J. Yeldon illustrates. Still, Prewitt is as fearless a hitter as anyone in the country and figures, at a minimum, to be a special-teams menace as a rookie."

    Obviously fifth round picks don’t typically see a lot of starting time right off the bat, but as long as the Chiefs could plug Prewitt in as a sub from time to time, this could be a really smart pick.
