His best year came at playing FS in 2010 while Barron at SS. He struggled mightily last year as the SS. He's also not a great tackler. Unless something happens (injury), its a terrible idea. Especially when we already have good depth at LB and Safety is the one who needs depth.

If anything we probably should try Kuechly at SS. :cool:


Lester has ball-hawking abilities but let's not get ahead of ourselves. He struggled in coverage while being a Free Safety too because he plays stiff. Keep in mind, Lester was great in coverage during his college tenure but that doesn't mean squat when you arrive in the NFL. The Golden Calf of Bristol didn't exactly light the NFL on fire with his passing abilities.

Yes, he takes bad angles but that's coachable. His tackling technique is surprisingly very good but his angles and aggressiveness make Lester appear worse than he truly is as a defender.

Agree, TD was an in the box safety at UGA, if Lester can't stick at S there's no reason to not give him a shot at LB. He has the size, is a good tackler, would have great speed for a LB and is a thumper.


Bingo!

Let's just stick him at Safety especially when he's doing well there. Let's not try going over board moving him around when we dont need to.

It's merely an option if he struggles at safety this year.

@SteveReedAP: Panthers coach Ron Rivera says rookie Edmund Kugbila tweaked a hamstring in practice. Unclear if it's related to knee issue in OTAs.


At least we have a lot of quality depth at guard.
