NFL Draft 2013: Jonathan Cyprien sets up 11 visits

Joe Robbins

The Florida International defensive back is expected to be one of the first safeties off the board in April's draft. Which NFL teams are set to get a closer look?

The NFL pre-draft workouts and schedules continue to grow and one of the top safeties available knows of at least eleven teams that are interested in his services. Jonathan Cyprien of Florida International, rated as the second-best safety in the class by NFL Draft Scout, has scheduled visits with the Falcons, Panthers, Redskins, Cowboys, Dolphins, Jags, Cards, Titans, Browns, Niners, and Texans according to Pro Football Talk.

The 6'0, 217 pound strong safety ran a 4.64 40-yard dash at his pro day and did 18 reps on the bench. Cyprien's draft stock has been hard to gauge as the weeks go on, with some rating him as high as the late first or early second round, while others see him as more of a mid-round pick. Kenny Vaccaro out of the University of Texas is typically rated as the best safety available in the class, and he could go in the middle of the first.

The Redskins do not have a first-round pick but are often projected to be taking a safety and shoring up a weak secondary when they select in the second. It would make a lot of sense for Washington to get a closer look at Cyprien and see if he's a steal when they make their first pick. The Niners have lost Dashon Goldson to free agency and missed out on Ed Reed, and also have the Chiefs' second round-pick, so they could definitely be major players for Cyprien's services as well.

There is no doubt that Cyprien will be taken in April's drafts and be one of the first safeties off of the board, it's only a matter of when and to what team. This could help clear up that second question, if only a little bit.
