With Woolfolk moving over to Cissoko's corner spot and our safety play being (let's face it) abysmal, is it a good time to shift Cissoko to safety. This could potentially provide several advantages.
Currently our safety play has been decent against the run, but just awful against the pass. Cissoko has the experience of covering recievers and the ability to read plays, but lacks both the necessary height and speed to be an elite corner. If he plays at safety he's be playing farther back, keeping opposing recievers in front of him and allowing him to utilize his coverage skills. At the same time this would also, to a degree, keep opponents from taking advantage of his size/speed (see: ND and Floyd).
In my mind this is an obvious move, helping improve our secondary while allowing Woolfolk to continue to play corner (which I feel he does better than Cissoko at this point).
What do you think?
