This is interesting to me. I don't think I would look at him as a CB. But the fact that it is discussed he *can* play it suggests to me that he has to be decent enough to cover a guy.
One of the great things about having Woodson was that he cover a guy like having an extra CB on the field.
So, I'm intrigued about him as a prospect at safety in the 2nd round (if he falls that far).
Just take everything said by the coaching staffs at the Senior Bowl with a grain of salt.
They'll only say positive things about every player. Much like former employers now refusing to give recommendations, coaches actually open themselves up to all kinds of legal issues if they give any negative remarks.
