Also, just thought I'd throw this out there, even though it's been a few years.... Dude had a very good Combine and Pro Day. 4.5 40 and good agility drills. He actually performed much better than Goldson while being half an inch shorter and 10 lbs. heavier.
Some people needed to get their facts straight.
He's played both. I guess we're referring to him as a FS because that's where our need is.
His combine results indicate he'd be a good special teams player. There is also some physical talent there.
23:16 The news cycle is back on track as Pro Football Talk reports that safety Craig Dahl is visiting the 49ers. San Francisco lost free agent FS Dashon Goldson to the Bucaneers this week, so Dahl represents a possible replacement. He played 96 percent of the Rams' snaps last season, grading at -6.1 overall for the year. Dahl is a true free safety who played "in the box" a league-low 11 percent of the time. Goldson ranked third in that department, so on the surface, it appears that Dahl will be good fit for the scheme. If there's a concern, it's Dahl's tackling as he was seventh-worst among safeties missing one out of every 5.7 tackle attempts.

There 3rd last ranked S. (Out of a crap load). And I'm not sure why everyone thinks he's like this crazy good special team'r he's not in the top hundred for special-teams tackles last year. Don't like it at all. Oh but wait, I forgot I'm not allowed to have a different opinion, I'm just supposed to say in Baalke we trust
