So who is most likely going to fill Trey Boston's role as a true Free Safety in our defense this season?

- Burris or another SS will take it on

- A CB will be converted and assume that role (if so which one)

- We will sign a veteran option before the season (who would you want)

- Kenny Robinson (the closest thing we have to to a true FS) will step up and actually take over the role

Burris with either Sean Chandler, Kenny Robinson or Myles Hartsfield backing him up. I don’t think the Panthers are gonna go out and get anyone as much as I want them to.

It's probably gonna be Burris and FS will be high on our shopping list next off-season. We weren't gonna solve all our issues in one off-season but I did expect some competition to be brought in at FS.

Got to be Malik Hooker at this point. Low risk high reward. We could get him for peanuts. Kenny Robinson won’t be the answer. Most likely won’t make the team. People forget that the kid was cut last year and then brought back. There were 31 other teams that could’ve had him when he was cut. No one bothered to sign him.

With the additions of J. Horn, AJ Bouye and K. Taylor- The thinking is we will be playing more Press Man Coverage which in many packages use a Deep Single High Safety (FS). I really don't see anyone on our roster that has demonstrated that ability. To be as versatile and be able to "show all the looks," We kind of need someone to do that I'd think. Last year we played a lot of split safeties and 3 safety looks, with mostly zone concepts I think. 

I don't think any of the current safeties on our roster really have the range to play FS, especially in 1 deep looks. Chinn is actually probably our best option as far as range/speed- but he is so valuable playing closer to the box. Hartsfield is probably the next best option as far as Range/Speed of the guys listed as S or DB on our roster.

I think this will be a very interesting position to fill in Camp. It may not be a big deal, if our line and corners play better (more pressure/better coverage) then opposing teams may not be able to expose Burris, or another less rangy DB playing the FS roles as easily.
