Panthers moving Chinn to safety. Thoughts?

Yeah, this staff seems to not really differentiate.

Same thing with Fox and Rivera and a lot of teams. Even ones that do differentiate between the two will cross-train and prepare the two. 

Responsibilities all boil down to about the same during the game anyways depending on the offensive attack. Cover center field and watch the run. Both guys need to be good in coverage and both need to be stout against the run.

Emergence of the spread offense has pushed safety in this direction even moreso.

Drafting Horn makes Chinn that much better in the back of the defense. 
 

the secondary just evolved with the addition Horn + Chinn playing his natural position. 

 

the defense will have 4 blue chip pieces. Brown, Burns, Chinn, Horn 


you can def start to see the picture Rhule is painting now with what he had and what he’s building.

Y'all do remember Thomas Davis bouncing between LB and SS, right? He found his spot. Chinn will do the same.

Yup, that's what I was thinking too. He'll ultimately end up where he provides the most impact

I don't think they've specified that Chinn would be a strong safety.

I know Person said a while back that they were planning on trying Chinn at free safety.

FS doesn't make sense at all. LB/S hybrids usually play SS. You want him closer to the front 7 to be able to lay the wood and cover the TE underneath. Having him back peddle away, which will lessen his chances of doing that, doesn't seem like the right move.

I wouldn't worry about FS vs. SS. there's not a whole lot of difference between the two jobs and abilities anymore. Just think safety. Both guys back there will largely do the same job.

Sure it makes sense. With big tall receivers who are tough to bring down you need a safety who is big, tall and fast as well. I hope he can be our version of Ed Reed in the secondary.

For those who say Jackson is too small to play nickel slot, the two top ranked slot defenders by PFF were Kenny Moore who is  5'9" and 190 lbs. and Bryce Callahan is 5'9" and 188. Compare that with Jackson who is 5'10" and 180. He is surely big enough and fast enough. And if he isn't a good tackler I would rather have him miss a tackle closer to the line where he might have help rather than putting him on an island as an outside corner or at free safety where he is our last line of defense. The only reasonable place you play him if you start him at all is at nickel slot.

Don't get too caught up in the delineation between FS and SS. Quite often there's very little difference between the two. It's essentially a meaningless designation. Responsibilities will be the same for both safeties.

 

IMO, if you want the ability to disguise your D, you need both your safeties to be versatile. So yeah, FS,SS, it doesn't matter.
