It seems like every year GMs draft guys who at CB who might have a better shot at succeeding as safeties. Glover Quinn is a great example of someone that went through that process. I have two more well-known guys who I think would be better off switching to safety:

Quincy Wilson: He has great size and is solid in run support. However, he doesn't have the greatest feet in the world. He might be a decent CB but could be an awesome safety.

Marlon Humphrey: Has all the triangle numbers that you could ever want in a CB. He is really good in run support. However, he is not great at preventing the deep ball. Can he play well outside against NFL receivers? He has been torched by first-round receivers and has allowed fair number of long completions.

Thoughts?

Desmond King is probably the mascot of this topic.

Good call. He will probably have to move to FS.

Quincy Wilson is not moving to safety. He sucks at tackling. I like him as a prospect but if he's your safety you're going to get run over.
