Default Could Jacoby Jones move to secondary?

This guy has all the tools, except one. He was drafted as a developmental player and the thing that he seems to lack is good hands. Would he be able to make the switch to defense as a corner? He certainly has the speed, but what about the rest of the skills required of a corner?

Hell no. The guy barely got to break in at the college level playing the position that he plays (loose term there), what makes anybody think that he could now switch positions? In all honestly if Harry Williams (a real football player with heart) didn't get hurt, would he even make the team?......he's actually on the bubble this coming year. (and was last year also)

Andre Johnson can be a Wideout, the DB covering him, the QB passing to him, and the fan freaking out all at once if he wanted to be.

Yes, but he can't be a linebacker, because they're not supposed to intercept 40+ yard bombs to wide-outs.

I'm thinking free safety. He's got all the tools. He's a certified ball hawk, has incredible hands, fantastic speed, & great size (6'3" 223lbs.). He's extremely strong, has great instincts (ie, he knows where the ball is going), & no one can beat him deep. Let's move him to free safety. That would solidify our secondary for years & we can always find an average WR to replace him. Lol j/k

On a more serious note, I doubt JJ makes it past this year, & he might not even make it out of camp. There's a player by the name of Johnny Knox that could replace JJ. He has similar size & speed (4.34 forty), but he has great hands, which JJ doesn't have. From what I've seen, he'd be an upgrade over JJ.

Default Re: Could Jacoby Jones move to secondary?

He was taken on the basis of his speed for returns. Furthermore, during his stint with the Texans, no one would accuse him of being "tough." As a receiver, given the plays, he has a difficult time running routes and finding the ball..........I can only imagine him in a defensive position where he is not given the play, and needs to figure out where the offensive player and the ball might be..................well, maybe outfitted with the right equipment.

If Andre Johnson were a LB, he'd intercept 40-yd. bombs

On a side note, AJ is about the same size as Xavier Adibi. Just sayin' ......

Yeah, it was a pretty stupid idea i guess. He sure as hell isn't working out as a receiver or returner. Guess he was just a waste of a 3rd round pick.

I don't know if he's as "on the bubble" as we think he is. When he actually fields the punt he's extremely dangerous.

I would argue that when thrown to he made catches. I don't remember him having any drops last year. I only remember him being thrown to a handful of times but he made the catches. I don't know if that's the knock on him.

I think he's be a tremendous WIL. We know the guy is not afraid of contact and he's very aggressive and there's no question about his qickness and foot speed which is superior even among WRs.
But my biggest question about JJ is simply what's the most we can get for him from another team if we'd try to unload him ?
