While names like Kenny Vaccaro, Johnathan Cyprian, and Eric Reid have been the most-discussed safety prospects in this year’s NFL Draft, Towson University Safety Jordan Dangerfield is starting to gain some attention after he was an FCS All-American performer at free safety this past season, and watching his film, it’s hard to see differences between he and the more-talked about prospects mentioned.

Dangerfield originally signed to play football at Hofstra, but because Hofstra wound up dropping their program, he was forced to transfer to Towson, where he his been one of the top defensive players in the  Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) of FCS.

Don’t let his 5’11” 200 lbs. frame fool you. A three-year starter and team captain, Dangerfield earned All-CAA First Team honors twice. He’s hard hitter, who had some of his best hits of the year against FBS teams like LSU and Kent State. Despite missing two games in 2011 due to injury, Dangerfield led the Tigers in tackles with 93 and intercepted two passes, forced two fumbles, and recovered two fumbles.
