Could be trying him out in different sub packages. 

Honestly S has a lot more questions and concerns than CB right now, so I wouldn't be shocked to see them look at potential position swaps.

During the Browns game, Venturi said S was one our strongest positions.  Not saying i agree, but i dont lose sleep over it either.

depth wise, S, OL, and iDL are my biggest concerns. if folks were grading positions ( starters and depth), i'd be surprised if many graded safety in the top half.  outside of Hooker, lots of questions, at least to me. i definitely don't agree with Venturi. ESPN doesn't either. Hopefully the starters stay healthy, and Willis grows into a stud.

I see the safety depth as really good among those likely to make the roster: Willis, Odum, and Farley.  But after that, it’s a big step down: Milligan and Johnson, and previously Kindred.  I wonder if Tell could be kept on the roster and be given back-up Safety duties.  He probably needs more work before he’s ready to contribute too much at CB...

We have solid depth at safety, not superstars outside of Hooker and if/when Geathers is healthy. The other guys are solid depth. I’m not losing sleep on safety. I’d lose sleep on the oline depth of anything

 The way our D is set up Moore and Wilson will filter in to snaps at safety.
We should be in very good shap at the position compared to our peers.

Even if he is a safety that can easily be a slot corner. The only reason I brought him up is I heard Zach hicks mention how he looks like a guy who could be Moore’s backup. Even Moore played some safety in the KC game. He seems really physical like Moore.

It's midway thru pre-season but I wouldn't sleep on the Kai Nacua signing - he's got real talent and ball skills. 

 

Sometimes it just takes the right scheme, the right coach or the right teammates to flourish....

 

As far as depth is concerned, I like Odum and Willis as our primary back-ups. I think Fairley (whom I love as a ND fan) to be cut in favor of a 6th CB (likely Tell).

I love our safety room currently, when a player of Farley's caliber likely gets cut thats a positive sign. Willis may start much sooner then later, Hooker another year removed from injury should bounce back to early rookie form. Odom showed a lot more than anyone expected last season and if Geathers stays healthy quite the 4 some. Not high on Milligan or Johnson, not familiar yet with Nacua so cant say if he may make the p.s. Hope he brings that level to the table.

Not losing sleep, but it is concerning  a bit simply because of the increased quality of QBs/passing-Os we're going to see this year. I'm less concerned about FS than SS. I do agree OL depth is a concern. We were all concerned last year, and but it turned out pretty good.

After 2 preseason games;

I've noticed Taylor in a positive way in both games.

It looks like I'm in the minority liking Farley more than Odum.

I like Tell more than Hairston.

Wilson's poor tackling, poor coverage and poor effort is visible.

I think Ya Sin starts week 1.

EDIT: I really like Khari Willis too.

But, what do I know honestly....
