1. S Jairus Byrd

Jairus Byrd has spent the past five seasons in Buffalo establishing himself as a ball hawk, pulling down 22 interceptions and forcing 11 fumbles. When the Bills didn't place the franchise tag on this 27-year-old, they virtually guaranteed he was escaping Buffalo for a better city, and more money. Byrd is expected to unseat Eric Berry's six-year, $50 million deal, becoming the NFL's highest-paid safety. But is he really worth a $50 million contract?
