Would you take Reggie Nelson at 8, knowing he could play both CB and FS? To me that makes his stock jump way up...you have a versatile enough saftey that could fill in at CB if an injury occured...I think i would rather have Neslon over Landry knowing i have the chance to move him around the defensive backfield

I like the versatility only for a game or two. Not for a prolonged period of time and experience does help for things like CB blizes that Dunta does great on seemingly.

In all honesty it's usually the othr way around Older hitting Cb's tend to get moved to safeties. The best i can think of is Rod Woodson.

I don't get why some people on this board seem to pimp that idea so much. Like when Landry posted a 4.35 forty. No thanks to the moving them to CB idea.

theres a reason why he's at safety. keep him there

Why take a great safety to put him into place as a who knows what CB.

Isn't there a question over his speed anyway??

no, his speed was fantastic... when he ran his 40 at the florida pro day he dissappeared after 30 yards and it was reported that he ended up in 1955!

I'd leave him at Safety...

I think he'd make the transition to corner better than Landry would though.
