Re: Sean Taylor dominates preseason game vs. Broncos
Taylor was very impressive in his NFL debut - too impressive to be relegated to
the safety position. A lot of people don't buy this argument, but the truth is there has only been 'bout 4 or 5 players drafted in the first round over the last 4
or 5 YEARS that played safety. And there is almost that many CBs drafted every
YEAR (on average) in the first round. And if safety was such an important, strategic position, some of these great young corners would be moved immediately to safety when they enter tne NFL. They never are, only when they age and lose a step or 2 do they move to safety.Are we moving D. Robinson to safety. No. He's got the natural sprinter speed to play corner in the NFL and excel because he can match speed with the WR speed guys. Coleman dosn't, he's too vulnerable on the deep routes against these same speed WRs.
But this Taylor kid looks special. He's got size and real speed. Shut down corners are far more valuable to a team than a mere safety.
But if we had him, he'd be a freak at weakside OLB. Yea, he could be the ultimate OLB in the 3-4.
