Remember Janzen Jackson? Same predicament as Ray Ray. Better player.

I like Robert Lester.
Typical Alabama overachiever. Smart, fundamentally sound football player that doesn't miss a lot of tackles or give up a lot of big plays. Pretty much the definition of "safety."
He's got good NFL size and some sneaky athleticism. He's not overly powerful or overly fast but he's instinctive and he's a good runner with natural balance that allows him to play faster than he is. I doubt he times well and I think that will push his draft stock down.
He does have good range. He walks over and single covers the slot and he plays both the deep half and plays as the single deep safety in cover one and three. He can also play in the box and is a solid run support safety. He's not a striker, but he's a good fundamental wrap up tackler that takes good angles and breaks down when he hits.
I think he's a versatile safety that can play both positions, but probably favors the deep role based on his college usage. I think he's got starters upside and would be a nice mid round pick.
