Per Sports on Earth's Matt Brown, Duke senior S Jeremy Cash is the best safety in the country.
Kind of. You see, Cash is one of three Duke starting safeties, and he plays a roving, hybrid linebacker/slot corner/safety position. "He's a versatile playmaker, one who displays superior instincts and recognition skills," Brown wrote. "The 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior seemingly has a hand in every play, and he's been a big part of Duke's rise the last few years." Cash, who began his career at Ohio State prior to transferring, briefly considered hopping to the NFL over the winter, but ultimately decided to return to campus. Cash has logged 232 tackles, 20 TFL, 5.5 sacks, six interceptions, 11 pass breakups, seven QB pressures, six forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries across 27 career games.
