I think this is where the game is evolving. Glover Quin was a corner who played well against the run. Even before the move to safety, he kicked inside & we put McCain outside. Quin played like a LB with coverage skills, but he's too small to be considered a LB, which makes him a safety.
Now we've got that guy you were asking about last week on the practice squad. A safety who got too big, so he was moved to ILB. If he can cover like a corner (most safeties can't) then he may be what we're looking for.
Tony Gonzales, Antonio Gates, Jason Whitten, Dallas Clark, Owen Daniels, Vernon Davis, Jimmy Graham, Gronkosky, Jermaine Gresham, Jermichael Finley, Matellus Bennett......... These big WRs are becoming more & more the norm.
