interesting take on DK as a centerfielder....

Quote:
Desmond King

Ironically, King is earning his stripes as a CornerBack, despite the expectations of all ~ including me ~ that he profiled best as a CenterFielder. The Lightning Bolts took'm in the 5th Round at #151. I gave'm a 2nd/3rd Round Grade. What's amusing is that King had a 1st Round Grade before his 4.60 40 at The Combine sent his Stock plummeting. If it wasn't for that, my 2nd/3rd Round Grade would've had me calling'm "overrated." King's future may quite possibly be as a ball-hawking CenterFielder, as I prophesied, but as a CornerBack, King is already rapidly ascending towards stardom.

Take an All-Pro Slot CB, and move him to Safety.........................

we can move a star slot CB, and not have a star there anymore, and have him play an unnatural position because we Just made Addae do it this year for an experiment in grand failure........................................... ............

.......................................give me a minute or two to ponder all of that, I'm slow, don't pick on the slow just because I am not as smart as you guys.............................................. ..............................................
.................................................. .........................

ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, No.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

It is broke.....and fixing it is needed.

Chris Johnson.... from what i've read he can tackle well and drop into coverage easily. A lot of pass breakups and the ability to help in the run as well as be a functional slot CB.... can play both safety spots...

Sounds like a perfect compliment to DJ... either could play both spots and keep QBs guessing as to whom will drop back and who will step up....

I like it.... i'll add him to my list.

Of all the things that this defense needs fixing.... I don't think any portion of Desmond King is anywhere near the top of the list....

Or even middle....

Honestly... wouldn't even put him on the list.

But to each his own.

I agree, King is a very solid player. Does moving him to another position suddenly take all his talent away ? Nope..... There are only so many players available on the roster, finding that synergy is the key. Not saying I move him, but certainly not afraid to try.....

haven't given it too much thought, and.... one thing that pops out is that it in theory gets King on the field more as a starter (I know we play a lot of nickel 4-2-5).

Can cover in man when asked and has the ball-tracking skills and anticipation that should allow him to thrive in two-deep and single-high situations.

don't think it hurts to try him out there, as am fairly certain he is an upgrade over Watkins and/or Addae, 'specially if we draft a developmental prospect out of the draft.... (can Facyson play slot corner ?)
