Jason Allen was moved around because he couldn't grasp how to play either position and coaches were just trying to figure out how to get him on the field.......
Wrong. Coaches moved him around out of necessity.
Thanks for the correction.......
Putting Smith at Safety is not a good idea. Even as a cover safety.. He would still be called on, a lot, to make tackles in the run game. Sean Smith has a problem being physical against the run. He does not tackle well at all.
The Safety that is supposed to come up in run coverage is the SS more often than not. I believe Bell handles that job just fine. The FS may have to help in run coverage, but that does not happen a lot unless your front-7 stinks. Plus he is a better tackler than your boy Wilson who played FS last season and is terrible in coverage.
I believe Smith would make a better FS than CB because he seems to track the ball better when the ball is in front of him. Again it may take another season or so because as the FS he may be called upon to be the leader of the secondary and I'm not sure if he's ready for that?
