Su’a Cravens continues to be an intriguing prospect


Two years ago, the Cardinals surprised pretty much everyone by devoting a first-round pick to safety Deone Bucannon. He’s now a linebacker, and a very good one.

This year, some are wondering whether the same thing will happen with Su’a Cravens. The former USC linebacker will enter the NFL preferably as a safety. His eventual employer will make the final decision.

Before that decision is made, the question becomes which team will decide to put his name on a draft card. It won’t be a shock if he sneaks into the bottom of round one.

Cravens is at least good enough to merit negativity from #anonymousscouts. As one of them told the official #anonymousscout scrivener-sans-scrutiny regarding Cravens: “I don’t think he makes enough plays. He’s one of those guys that gets up late so you call his name. That’s a bit of an exaggeration but there was some pretending tough guy to him.”

So, possibly, someone thinks enough of Cravens to hope that he slides far enough to be snatched. Whether that happens late in round one or round two or round three remains to be seen.

Teams to watch include the teams he visited. Last month Cravens told PFT Live that he would be visiting the Saints, Lions, Raiders, Dolphins, Bills, and Colts.
