Which would you prefer at FS?

Which would you prefer at FS?

Personally, I would be comfortable playing Cully at FS. He has experience there in college and this would allow Nnamdi to play outside with T Brown with Rodgers in the slot. My second option would be to let Nnamdi play there and then groom a rookie
I'd prefer drafting a FS in rounds 1 or 2. Moving Cully to FS would be a mistake IMO. He has legit man coverage skills. Finding guys with his size, speed, and fluidity can be difficult. Don't let the SB make you forget about all the games he ran stride for stride with any receiver he was matched up against. He's a young player that will continue to improve.
I'm willing to bank on the fact Culliver starts the season at FS.

RonnieLott moved to S after 2 years at corner if I'm not mistaken. Safeties shouldn't be just guys who lack coverage skills. Plus he would have versatility because he can play corner. Drafting a FS and making him the starter right off the bat would be what's difficult IMO.

He's good at covering but he is not as good finding the ball. I have to agree with you, though

Well he was one of the best safeties in his conference in college. Didn't play corner until his senior year also if I'm not mistaken, so it's not like he would be new to the position.

Well he was one of the best safeties in the ACC. Didn't play corner until his senior year also if I'm not mistaken, so it's not like he would be new to the position.

Was he really that good? I didnt know anything about him when he was in college

He was actually in the SEC. Not sure why I thought the Gamecocks were ACC.

This all day. Thank you, finally someone with common and reason. It drives me crazy that you get people who don't watch any of the Niner games all year and then watch the playoffs or the Super Bowl and then decide that Culliver is terrible. (Especially the media). Culliver is a budding star and will be one of the best corners in the league that doesn't hold.
Well, if the Niner's want to go more physical (like Baalke alluded to and backed by CB's we've looked at in FA and Draft) they could go:

Culliver (LCB) - Brown (slot) - 1st round (FS) - Dahl (SS) - Nnamdi (RCB)

Whitner is cut to save 4M this year alone. Rogers' renegotiates and baks up both CB spots.
