...always talk of him moving to free safety? I just don't get it. It's like with Antrel Rolle of the Cardinals. He played well at cornerback in 2007, and they moved him to free safety. Also, I hear talk of Vontae Davis moving to free safety. If a guy can cover, then he can cover. Just leave him at corner. Am I wrong about this?

He had 5 interceptions. That's pretty good in my book.

Usually it's because a heavier guy won't have as fluid as hips and as good change-of-direction skills as a lighter guy. Remember, in college corners can be much more physical with the receivers. They can make contact all the way down the field until the ball has been thrown. This really helps the bigger, more physical corners at the college level. Their game doesn't translate nearly as well to the NFL - which is becoming basketball on grass.

Rolle mostly played the Rolle of a Nickelback and a rover last season for the Cardinals, which is why he came up with 5 interceptions (3 of which were in 1 game). Rolle has always done a horrible job matching up with receivers on the field and played better this season at FS (albeit, I still think they can use an upgrade over him).

And playing CB is all about INTs, right?

Brian Russell had 9 in 2003, so he's better than ALL THREE!

Ed Reed had 9 INTs this year. They should move him to CB.

You obviously didn't watch Arizona last year. Antrel Rolle had three interceptions against Cincinnati, meaning he had two if you took those away. He was bloody awful all last year, and it really hasn't been much better this year, although it was a start. He benefits from Adrian Wilson so much it's not even funny.

I understand what you are saying, and I agree with it because there are good big corners and there are good smaller corners in the NFL. But using Antrel Rolle as the basis of your argument was foolish. You must not watch many Arizona games, because he is simpyl not a very good NFL corner. And this is coming from a HUGE Canes fan.
