3. Damar Hamlin
The next player is safety Damar Hamlin from the University of Pittsburgh, who the Buffalo Bills drafted in the sixth round. He is a player that doesn’t have a path to playing time unless one of the starters miss time due to injuries.
Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde are one of the better safety duos in the league and over the past four seasons have been two very durable players, missing minimal time.
The reason that Hamlin is third on this list though is that if Poyer or Hyde were to miss any time, then he could be that next player up, replacing the role Dean Marlowe played the past few seasons. He is an experienced safety, playing in 48 games over five seasons for Pitt, and is a good tackler at the position. During his time in college, Hamlin had 275 total tackles and averaged nearly six tackles per game.
