Default Chris Harris eventual move to Safety

This guy is cut out more in the mold of a safety. A wider frame and not as quick as the smaller Cb's. I bet he's right under 200lbs today. I like his tackling and he seems like a smart dude with good ball skills. He played the postion his last 6 games at KU. There was a guy named Tyrone Braxton who wasnt touted coming out, about the same size (5-10 190), and who started out at corner and made the transition flawlessly..

I thought he was a better safety, but I really think he's emerging as a good corner. A lot of safeties have issus with slot players. Chris plays the slot well. He's a corner.

If Adams continues his questionable cover skills I could see the eventual switch.

Cornerback is a much higher priority position than safety, if he is a good corner he has to stay there.

I agree with this but if moving him to Safety means Denver can move Carter to slot this might work out pretty well. It would most assurdly be a faster unit that what is on the field now.

And let's move Champ to safety as soon as possible too, we're wasting valuable time with him as CB.

Harris replaces Adams. Bolden/Carter to corner. Adams to the Bench. Whats not to like. Best players on the field.

Neither Carter or Porter can play slot very well. It's a bad idea for that reason.

Some act like Harris has NEVER played the safety position before. This thread is for OPINIONS. Just cause you don't agree with it doesn't mean you need to bash others opinion.

Personally I want to see Harris on the field all the time. Not just in sub packages.

Porter would play CB, Harris SS, and Bolden can play the slot...or shoudl I be considered an idiot by the likes of the all knowledgable Action?

Better yet, Decker replaces Adams, Quentin Carter replaces Woodyard at LB because he can cover, Champ plays WR/PR/KR/ and moves to S so we can get Carter on the field and Von Miller plays LB and FB.

They brought porter in at a hefty price which tells me they couldnt count on harris being the starter. Only a dope would compare Champ to Harris.

Corner is a much more valuable position than safety. Chris Harris is playing well at corner. Therefore, move him to safety...?

Exactly. I really wonder what some of these people do in their daily lives.

Someone is excelling at what they do and you want to completely change what they do. Harris is a cornerback that excels in physical man to man coverage. He hasn't been playing the technique of safeties at all in the NFL, and people want to talk about moving him there?

It's just disgusting some of the thoughts people have on here.

Harris is good, he's not great. I dont see the pure speed or athleticism like your model champ/revis type corners. I see a burlier guy whos a sure tackler and smart player. I see a safety.

It's an opinion about a football player playing football - I think the word disgusting is definitely not the correct word you were after. Frustrating maybe is something more to the liken.

I for one would like to see Harris get some "time" at SS. I love him in the slot right now but he's not the starter, Porter is. He comes in in nickel and dime defenses. I'd like to see him get some reps at SS just to get on the field more and to see how he does there. He can still play dime/nickel CB.

They brought Porter in for 4 mill on a 1 year deal... a 1 year deal for a 26 year old player... hefty price?

No, they needed DEPTH at that position for situations just like against the Chargers. Had nothing to do with Harris, they obviously wanted to keep him in slot and Broncos had no depth.

They didn't know who their 3rd 4th and 5th CB's would be before the signing of Porter. So no, it really has nothing to do with Harris.

Only a DOPE would move someone doing so well at a young age at what they do that they've doing their whole NFL career... instead of letting them continually get better.

How about go get a safety that's been playing safety for their whole career and actually has a TRUE build and technique of a safety?

They brought Porter in for 1 year, which to me says, they liked Harris and Carter but didn't think they were ready to start. I really don't understand the notion of mocing a corner to safety when they are still working out as a corner.

I got to think Harris has better long term potential at Safety then Corner based on his body and athleticism. He's not a 4.4 guy and I bet he's barely 4.5. they should look into this offseason

He actually ran a 4.48, so yeah, he's a 4.4 guy and comparable to most starting CBs in the NFL.

He may not have the prototypical speed for a corner, but he has really good coverage skills. I think unless the team has someone who can be an upgrade from him, it makes no sense to switch his position.
