Ahmad Black, SS, Florida

It has not been a good year for the Florida Gators, but Black has been a major bright spot. In fact, the safety has been absolutely awesome. He leads the team with 102 total tackles (29 more than any other teammate) and 68 solo tackles (also 29 more than any other teammate) through 12 games. Black has 10 tackles for loss (third on the team), a sack that went for a 20-yard loss, three interceptions (tied for first on the team), two fumble recoveries (No. 1 on the team), and three forced fumbles (also No. 1 on the team).

He is doing all of this despite relatively diminutive size, as he stands at just 5'9'' and 190 pounds. However, he has been clocked as fast as 4.43 in the 40-yard dash and he is a huge hitter, which is why he can get the job done at safety for Florida. At the next level, though, Black's size will likely force a move to cornerback. Of course, there is no reason to think that he can't excel there just as he has done at safety and he has the experience (as a three-year starter) to make a quick transition to the NFL. Look for Black to go off the board during the third round.
