With receiver Amari Cooper and quarterback Dak Prescott up next for new contracts with the Cowboys Womens Leighton Vander Esch Jersey , one deal will be much easier to structure than the other, based on the structure utilized in the contract given to defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence.Cooper already is due to make $13.924 million in 2019, and he’ll be eligible for the franchise tag in 2020, an amount that will at least be $16.7 million, based on a 20-percent raise over Cooper’s 2019 cap number.That’s at least $30.624 million over the next two years, which the Cowboys should offer as a full guarantee at signing. Throw in a sizable 2021 salary guaranteed for injury at signing that becomes fully guaranteed in March 2020 plus a couple of non-guaranteed years in 2022 and 2023, and the deal will be done.Prescott’s deal becomes more difficult to structure because he’s due to make only $2 million this year. While the Cowboys surely would welcome an invitation to combine $2 million for 2019 with $25 million (roughly the franchise-tag for 2020), that’s only $27 million for two years — far less than Prescott will want.With the team intent on signing both guys, it makes sense to turn to Cooper and make an offer based on the Lawrence structure before attacking the bigger challenge of working out a deal with Prescott.Through it all, the Cowboys shouldn’t forget about running back Ezekiel Elliott, who has two years left on his rookie deal but who should be thinking seriously about drawing a line in the sand. Which 2019 safety prospects are the most productive AND most athletic?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Dallas Cowboys NewsDallas Cowboys 2019 DraftFinding the superior athlete: SPARQ safeties in the 2019 NFL Draft New,137commentsWhich 2019 safety prospects are the most productive AND most athletic?CDTShareTweetShareShareFinding the superior athlete: SPARQ safeties in the 2019 NFL Draft Jerome Miron-USA TODAY SportsThis is the fourth post in this year’s superior athletes series (on DEs Michael Gallup Jersey White , DTs, and LBs), and by now you should know the drill.First, we look at the college production of a specific position group. For the safeties, we’ll be using a metric based on production points (the metric is explained in detail in the post on linebackers), which looks at the key stats for safeties and weights them with a point system that gives you a single number showing how many production points a player averaged per game.Then we match that with a metric for athleticism, SPARQ, which is a single number designed to summarize a player’s athleticism. The number is calculated with a proprietary formula that incorporates player weight, bench press, broad jump, vertical jump, forty-yard dash Dak Prescott Jersey , ten-yard split, short shuttle and 3-cone drill (details here).Once we have those two metrics, we combine them to see which draft prospects emerge as the most productive AND the most athletic.All the caveats and provisos from the previous posts still apply, but there is one change we’ll make for safeties and in the next post for cornerbacks: instead of looking at their production over the last two college seasons, we’ll only look at each prospect’s last and final college season. The reason for this is that a lot of defensive backs in this draft class declared after their junior season, with some only becoming starters in their junior seasons.The next table summarizes both the production and Sparq data we have for 22 safeties with a draftable grade according to the The Draft Network big board. The players are sorted by their rank on the same board, and the players highlighted in green are official Top 30 pre-draft visitors in Dallas. The table is sortable, so you can see who ranks where for each category (just click on the blue column headers):Player DetailsProductionSPARQPRODUCTIONFor safeties, 11.0 or more production points indicate a strong track record of college production, and anything above 14.0 is exceptional.Having said that, we can’t look at production points in isolation, but need to add some context to these numbers. We need to factor in the type of role each player had in college. Some players played both corner and safety during their college careers. Others played more of a hybrid linebacker/safety role Dallas Cowboys Maliek Collins Jersey , others yet again spent more time in deep center field than in the box - all these things affect a player’s college production and you can’t see all of that by only looking at numbers. Which is why production points and Sparq are two tools out of many more that can help in the final evaluation of a prospect.Gil Brandt for example proposed a safety ranking as follows: That ranking is obviously quite a bit different that what The Draft Network proposes. Add Dane Brugler’s Top 10 and confusion reigns supreme:Nasir AdderleyTaylor RappJohnathan AbramChauncey Gardner-JohnsonJuan ThornhillDeionte ThompsonDarnell SavageAmani HookerMike EdwardsMalik Gant Which is why it may not be the worst idea to take a look at production and athleticism markers to supplement those assessments.Overall, the standouts in terms of production points this year is Juan Thornhill (14.5), which will likely please a lot of Cowboys fans who have him pegged as their pet cat in the draft. There are seven more prospects, led by Johnathan Abram (13.8) and Nasir Adderley (12.8), with above average production.We do know that the production points method is similar to what the Cowboys use to evaluate their defensive players, so there is some validity to looking at college production for the prospects.ATHLETICISM Moving on to SPARQ, our list of safeties is reduced from 22 to 20 players, as there is no Sparq data available for Deionte Thompson and JoJo McIntosch’s production is simply too low for me to bother changing the scales on the graph.The graph below provides a visual representation of what happens when we plot production points against the SPARQ score for the 2019 safety class.Going clockwise from the top left of the graph, the C quadrant features players with a strong record of production at the college level but with questions regarding their athletic ability. The A quadrant (top right) contains the players most likely to succeed at the NFL level; they have a strong track record of production and combine that with the necessary athleticism to allow them to compete at the NFL level. The B quadrant (bottom right) shows superior athletes whose college production has been sub par, leaving scouts to question why this might be the case. The D quadrant (bottom left) is a nasty place for a prospect to find himself; it’s where the guys sit whose college production and athletic markers are both below those of their peers.Overall, I’ll echo Gil Brandt’s sentiment that this is a deep class for safeties, especially considering that safeties tend to get picked relatively late in the draft Cheap Maliek Collins Youth Jersey , as they are usually undervalued relative to some of the more premier positions. While only three players show up in the A-quadrant, quite a few more are borderline A-quadrant players, narrowly failing to surpass one of the red lines in the graph. Keep in mind that these lines are somewhat arbitrarily drawn - while they represent the averages at the position, there is no hard data confirming that the threshold for NFL success is at exactly that point.If you’re in the Juan Thornhill fanclub already, take this as further validation of your excellent scouting ability. If you weren’t yet, this is the time we welcome you to the Thornhill fanclub.All signs indicate that the Cowboys will take a safety high this year. The question is whether they’ll go out and get their guy with their second-round pick, or whether they’ll wait until the third round and see which of the guys they like fall to them. In either case there’s likely going to be a very solid prospect waiting for them.The Cowboys may even want to invest two picks at safety to take advantage of this strong safety class. A little competition never hurt anybody, and investing an extra late-round pick in a safety is going to be a lot cheaper than signing an ageing veteran.There’s not a lot of historic SPARQ data around, but these are the numbers I could get my hands on for some of the better safeties drafted over the last few years.
