10. A safety-free first round. Three years ago, the safety position was truly all the rage. Michael Huff and Donte Whitner were selected in the top 10, and Tennessee's Jason Allen went to Miami at 16th overall. In 2007, four safeties — including LaRon Landry at sixth overall to Washington — were selected in the first 24 picks. Last year, Kenny Phillips went to the Giants as the last pick of the first round. The 2009 NFL Draft? I don't see zilch coming from the safety position in the first round. What's with the sudden decline in the safety spot? Who knows? But aside from Western Michigan's Louis Delmas, Oregon's Patrick Chung and Mizzou's William Moore, there's no other safety that I can see going in the first 50 picks.
