    Re: Jimmy Smith lost 15 pounds, and apparently looking really good in OTAs.

    In this day and age, with the athleticsm and speed of WR's, it is so important for corners to be agile and fast enough to cover them, especially down field (which is where Smith struggled a little in 2011).

    I agree with GOTA, McPhee is our next Geno Atkins.

    Lots of times these guys exaggerate on stuff like this, I wouldn't get caught up with the numbers too much.

    Guys come in claiming best shape of their lives, lost x amount of weight all the time. Who knows what the exact numbers are.

    So we're really have a legitimate discussion about moving a freakishly talented prototype career Corner to a position he's never played before, and also moving a pro bowl caliber, proven corner to a position he hasn't played in the NFL ever......................

    I don't understand it either.

    If you have an elite CB, you keep them there. CB's are more valuable than FS.

    Now if the question is if they should move there in their 30's as their skills erode...ala Rod Woodson/Ronnie Lott...that's another story. But that's 6+ years away for both.

    I understand things are a little slow, but the idea is a tad too ridiculous right now, even for offseason speculation. There isn't a snowball's chance in hell that the team makes moves like that.... On madden i'm sure Jimmy smith would be a legendary safety, but in real life, keep him at corner, let him develop into his potential.
