One of the guys that has piqued my interest in this years draft is Jairus Byrd. Oregon's corners were special last year and it allowed them to run a lot of unique packages and plays on defense. Byrd was one of those corners and he was extremely productive. Not that it's something the Hawks need but he was also a pretty good punt returner.
At the pro level he's projected as a tweener between corner and safety. A bigger name thats projected as a CB/S is Malcom Jenkins and he's been discussed at some length around here. It seems like every year between the draft and training camp theres talk of different DBs moving to the safety spot but there are only a few players I can think of who've actually done it. Springs played some safety this year with mixed results, Rod Woodson turned a hall of fame career at corner into a productive twilight at safety, Dwight Smith moved from corner to play several up and down seasons at safety.
I'm pretty sure this list is far from comprehensive and I'm curious about the general success rates of players who make the move to safety, particularly out of college. Does a slow corner make a good safety?
