I did 'Mando a disservice with this as I picked & merged paragraphs to keep it short, but you'll have to go to the article to get the full picture. What "wows" a "big is better" person like me when it comes to NFL talent is the thought of a 6'4" safety. 'Mando also notes that he saw several other GMs here rather than at the Michigan State, Mississippi State, USC or Virginia Pro Day going on at the same time. Very interesting.

And it’s curious because two of South Carolina’s best three potential picks are cornerbacks -- Jaycee Horn and Israel Mukuamu. But here’s the thing: If Grier was present to see Horn there’s a bigger story afoot because the Dolphins definitely don’t have a need at cornerback that they’re likely to fill with a first- or second-round pick.
So maybe Mukuamu was the target. He’s played cornerback but also seems to profile as a safety -- perhaps a strong safety -- in the NFL. And why? Because he measured at 6-foot-4 and 212 pounds. He has 80 3/4-inch wingspan and vertical jump of 36 1/2 inches.
And with Tampa Bay and Las Vegas also on the 2021 schedule, Miami is likely to see Rob Gronkowski and Darren Waller next season. So lining up with a 6-4 defensive back that can run with tight ends, such as Mukuamu, could be Miami’s answer to the matchup nightmare.
