What's the scouting report on this guy? Those are some pretty athletic numbers. How was his career at the U? Was he on our practice squad all season?

"The San Francisco 49ers have changed the position of CB Cory Nelms to safety, after he put on about 10 pounds during the season."

Nelms was actually originally considered to be a safety prospect coming out of college. I think we were going to try him at corner first. Now that we have depth there, I think it makes extra sense to develop Nelms at safety -- a place where he is not only probably a better fit, but also a place where we could use the competition and a player to develop as depth.
