. Sixth Round. 26. . Mizzou mock draft. . S. . Safety.

The Raves had the best defense in the NFL in the 2023-2024 season, however, they have a lot of players heading into free agency. They can use the draft to get one or two top defenders and then wait till later rounds to get more at a cheaper price.

Jaylon Carlies is a solid safety with a good ability to read coverage and get through blocks. He has the speed to keep up with offensive players in his coverage and the ability to read what is happening on the field.

In college, Carlies had eight interceptions and was a problem in the middle of the field, however, opposing quarterbacks have a high quarterback rating when targeting him.
