I applaud you for thinking outside the proverbial box, but come on.
That was my reaction when Tampa took Lynch in the 3rd round.
Lynch isn't an ideal comparison, considering he actually made the switch from QB to safety going into his junior year at Stanford, giving him 2 years of DB experience before being drafted. Not to mention, then Stanford head coach Bill Walsh made sure that then-Bucs coach Sam Wyche knew what kind of player and leader Lynch was, so in his mind, Wyche felt like he was getting a steal in the 3rd after Bill's recommendation.
The better comparison would be Scott Frost, who went on to have a decent NFL career as a safety after playing QB at Stanford then Nebraska.
