2013

Elam will remind people of Bob Sanders with how he seems to be out of the frame one instant and lighting up the ballcarrier a second later, and that ability to lock onto and fly toward the ball should lend itself to useful tackle totals. Elam will need to be more selective with his hitting in the NFL after consistently playing recklessly at Florida, but it's hard to dislike this rookie first-round pick. Former cornerback Michael Huff is the best bet to fill the center-fielder role previously held by Ed Reed, while Elam should replace Bernard Pollard with the traditional strong-safety tasks.
