"Teams are looking far and wide for safeties because the class itself is so bad, one, and number two, because the league has changed," Mayock said. " It's a pass first league, and safeties are expected to cover first, and you'll give up a little physicality and tackling for that."
The Tide, Tigers and Rebels will be hosting Rashan Gary in the near future.
