Should we move Parker Orms to safety?

    With the incoming talent at CB, it seems logical to assume that maybe one or two guys that are currently at CB might make the move to safety. Orms would be at the top of that list.

    Orms is a playmaker and needs to be on the field. Don't care if it's at safety or CB. Wherever he's the best fit.

    Id like the move to nickle as well and getting him some snaps here and there at safety. Being able to afford to put him at nickle puts our secondary in a pretty decent position. Its certainly a luxury we didnt have last year.

    Are you saying all four of these players would be options before Orms or something else?

    I think people should have some patience with Yuri Wright. Not sure he is going to be ready to contribute day one.

    My idea for a dime set (2 safeties, 2 corners, 2 nickels) would be:

    Safeties: FS Harrington, SS Polk

    Corners: Henderson & Wright/Crawley

    Nickels: Orms & Crawley/Wright

    TSmith and Orms provide Safety and Nickel depth. Can't count on either as primary safeties though. Bell is good CB depth and will play a bunch I'm sure.

    Jared Bell was thought to be the best on the team until his injury. He came in rated as the #34 CB in the nation(highest possible 3*). I think he wants his starting job back that he earned last spring and it will be interesting to see what happens.

    Should we? I didn't know we had voting rights on position changes.

    Orms is a proven playmaker when healthy. Frosh are just that, frosh. They gotta take his job away.

    Let's 'em duke it out in Spring and Fall. Bell, depending on how healthy he is, may start just about anywhere.

    I do think that Orms will eventually earn the #1 Nickle job.

    I'm pretty sure teh "consensus" (if you can call it that) is that Yuri, while extremely talented, is still relatively raw. His ceiling is through the roof, but maybe not completely ready just yet

    To add to this if he stays healthy I think Parker will eventually be the starting free safety as an upperclassman. He is a very smart player, reads well, and is a good leader. The only hitch to this is that he is not a big guy physically and seems to be injury prone.

    Matt McChesney agrees with you

    @Allbuffs Yes. He doesn't flip his hips well enough to play corner & we have some 4 Star CBs comin in. Thinks are lookin up!!

    Does he stay healthier as a safety or corner?

    What would McChes know about making a successful position switch?
