Round 1, Pick No. 29

Florida State. HamsahNasirildeen. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. S. 29. 804

What Ryan Pace and Chuck Pagano love to have on their defense are players who can show versatility. For example, Pagano loves Eddie Jackson not only for his ability to ball on the field but for his ability to play anywhere as a safety. He can line up in the box, single-high, or marking players in the slot.

Hamsah Nasirildeen is just like that. Nasirildeen is a very big safety, but that doesn’t take away from his athletic ability. At 6’4″ and 212 pounds, he could contest for one of the biggest safeties in the NFL. He is a hard-hitting safety with great ball instincts. It remains to be seen what he would test for his other athletic traits, but as of now, his talent should translate perfectly to the next level.

Last season, Nasirildeen amassed 100 total tackles while intercepting two passes as well one of which was returned for a touchdown. Unfortunately, he faced a major ACL injury at the end of last season that has not allowed him to play yet this season either. Hopefully, we can see him on the field more so he can build off that incredible 2019 season for the Seminoles to continue building his draft stock.
