The NFL Draft will take place May 8-10 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Over a two-week span, Redskins.com will help you get to know the prospects who could wear burgundy and gold, play for an NFC East Rival or become the steal of your 2014 Fantasy Football draft. Here are the top safeties, according to NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock:

1.) HA HA CLINTON-DIX, Alabama (6-1, 208 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Hype exceeded his performance in Tuscaloosa, but Clinton-Dix offers starter-caliber instincts, range, coverage skills… more.

2.) CALVIN PRYOR, Louisville (5-11, 207 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Perhaps the most explosive hitter in this year's crop of safeties, Pryor is a big, physical hammer in the run game… more.

3.) JIMMIE WARD, Northern Illinois (5-11, 193 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
Wiry, active, aggressive strong safety at his best playing downhill and reacting to plays in front him… more.

Good-sized, athletic, physical safety who stands out as a straight-line striker on tape and sets the tone… more.

5.) LAMARCUS JOYNER, Florida State (5-8, 184 pounds)

NFL.com Bottom Line:
A terrific college football player and galvanizing leader for a national champion, Joyner is a tweener lacking unique physical traits for the pro game… more.
