NFL Market Share Production

Metric Recommendation: Tony Jefferson has all the qualities necessary for an above average NFL safety. The area he succeeds the most from college and the NFL is solo tackling, which is an underrated aspect of the position. But his lack of elite playmaking ability in interceptions and pass deflections may cause some teams to turn their nose up on him. However, in the NFL where finding a safety that can prevent big plays Jefferson is a major asset. Thus, I would recommend an NFL salary of 4,526,250 to 7,668,000 adjusting for the NFL salary cap increase.

This puts him at average to above average free starting free safety money. Exactly where his play has been and can be in the future.
