Updated 2012 NFL Draft strong safety rankings

After the jump, check out the updated strong safety rankings. The most notable difference from the previous rankings is the drop of Miami's Ray Ray Armstrong. He just can't get on the field. While there will sometimes be a pass for injured players, Armstrong's inability to get on the field is his own fault.

Also, it's true, there are two South Carolina players listed as strong safeties after the jump. DeVonte Halloman plays a more true safety role for the Gamecocks while Antonio Allen plays the Spur, a combination linebacker/safety position.
