Post DB Jimmy Wilson is focusing solely on safety this season
I like Jimmy Wilson a lot, but when he played at safety he didn't seem to get to the ball quick enough on the deep stuff. I hate that they keep bouncing him from CB to S as I would like to see him develop some consistency. He's been a very good 7th round pick for us.

PALM BEACH POST (Andrew Abraham) -
Wilson, a seventh-round pick in the 2011 draft, was initially converted to safety last season but returned to corner due to injuries. Wilson is expected to play a reserve safety role this year, and he said Wednesday that he’s naturally a cornerback but is developing into a safety.

“I played corner all my life, so I’m naturally just comfortable there,” Wilson said. “But at safety, I get to be more physical. I can help a lot more on the run and use my physical nature to help the team in creating plays. It’s really a toss up, but I feel like I’m forming more into a safety as I get more years into the league.”

ROTOWORLD -
Wilson entered the league as a cornerback out of Montana in 2011, and he rotated snaps between both defensive back spots last season. With the additions of Brent Grimes, Will Davis, Dimitri Patterson, and Jamar Taylor over the last eight months, Wilson can focus on one position. He'll fill a reserve role behind starters Reshad Jones and Chris Clemons, while playing special teams.

He looks lost playing safety. I remember him totally getting out jumped on a poor underthrown pass.

Hopefully he's a killer back there...
