Final Thought: Joseph is a Strong Safety who excels as a tackler and closing in on the ball. No slouch in coverage he had a good showing against Alabama in 2014, covering the third and forth receivers of the Tide and playing well in zone coverage. Joseph reminds ma a bit of Kam Chancellor, who currently plays for the Seattle Seahawks. Joseph has improved his ball skills and awareness immensely in 2015, creating more turnovers and mismatches in the passing game. Joseph is rapidly climbing the draft boards and may be the most improved coverage safety in this draft.
