This guy is a LB from FSU who doesn't want to move to S but some teams want to move him there. We interviewed him, possible "in the box safety guy" ala Quincy Black (that was for you Ryk) to let EB29 play a lot more deep stuff...

What you guys think?

I think he needs to set his pride aside and move to safety. At 6'3" and 218 lbs. he's too small to play LB in this league. And with the popularity of monster safeties like Kim Chancellor (who outweighs Smith by 15 lbs. as it is), it would be within his best interest to make the adjustment. Don't be like Tebow and insist on playing your original position. He's talented and athletic enough to play the position and he's coachable enough to learn the position.

If we are looking for a developmental strong safety prospect, I would prefer we target prospects that have more experience handling the position along with the projected ability to handle safety coverage assignments. Smith could be a very good coverage linebacker and still end up being a liability when asked to handle more safety-oriented coverage assignments.

I think there are some solid strong safety/hybrid defender prospects that also have upside in coverage like Ahmad Dixon, Dion Bailey, Deone Bucannon, Calvin Pryor, etc. to name a few.

If we are looking for a nickel linebacker to handle more linebacker coverage assignments, Smith could fit the bill but I think there could be some better overall prospects that could potentially handle fill more of a diverse role in our defense.

Don't like his attitude, only a LB? Well you better hope the right team drafts you.

Compare that attitude to Dion Bailey, a guy who's seen adversity, and he's just happy he's still playing football and will play anywhere for any team.

Now, I wouldn't mind converting Telvin into that Nickel-Backer role. Have him put on about 10 pounds, send Berry into the secondary.

Could work. Then again, would rather just find that elusive 2nd all-around ILB.
