I'd be curious to read about McCree being better suited at SS. He's basically the same dimensions as R. Walker, and I could be wrong but from what I've seen, he doesn't seem to have the SS makeup or mentality, especially when it comes to run support or getting physical with guys over the middle. I'm sure he could fill in there in a pinch be he seems like a little more of a finesse guy than my image of an ideal SS.
I remember reading the SS thing as well, although it struck me as odd as well because his coverage skills seemed better as well. Then again, I was surprised to find that he was a LB in college so he has to have some run support skills. Walker though was turning into a special teams monster--in the Patriots game he had something like 5 of 8 or 9 tackles on kick coverage and blocked both the field goal and punt.
