I can link you to forums where Wolfpack diehards say the same thing and even dozens of them saying he would be best at FS.

As I said, he will go to a heavy zone team or end up at FS. Just watch. I'll leave the forums for the year if he doesn't.

I think the thing to keep in mind though is that he's fast, he's big, and he has ball skills. I don't see any reason at all why a good DC couldn't teach him how to play press man. For example, the Jags' new coach. He has all the skills required to be good. Maybe it takes some time, but once he ran a 4.4 at 6'1, 205, it shows he has the size and athleticism to play any scheme.
