Jenkins, Vaughn or Young

I don't think there's any wrong opinion in the debate bc Williams likes players who can play multiple positions anyway.
im sure jenkins can play both.....as im sure vaughn can be a decent safety

are you saying that since jenkins flashed a tiny bit at corner that means he can transition to safety?

anybody that gets drafted can play in the NFL, or they wouldnt get drafted

jenkins is a corner moving to safety.....no matter how you spin it

vaughn is a safety.....regardless of which safety position he plays, hes still a safety......and at the safety position, jenkins hasnt shown anything more than vaughn

there really isnt much of a debate because there isnt any reason to really believe either will be better unless you base it off college

Re: Jenkins, Vaughn or Young

lets let vaughn hit the field before we give chip the mvp. if jenkins would have studied and played the safety position all last season and chip has played nothing but safety in his career then the compitition would be on. if jenkins is moving to safety like all the experts said after the draft, it looks like its going to be a fight. unless he goes to strong, heck i don't know. help?

Re: Jenkins, Vaughn or Young

I voted for Vaughn just because he's a natural safety and I think he's got the size and speed to be a player in the NFL.

That being said, Malcolm Jenkins is going to be one heckuva player for years to come. He has great instincts. My only concern is that he hasn't played safety in the NFL, and in several years.

I know who it definitely would NOT be, and that's Usama Young. Dude is awful.

Sharper had a once in a lifetime year last year. It won't be as good this year, but he still has soem playing left. I am glad he is resigned.

Vaughn

said it before we drafted him. he is better off at SS.

Jenkins belongs at FS.

I'm saying that I've seen more on the field from Jenkins than Vaughn at this point. And the coaches discussed him playing Safety before he was even drafted.

Wrong. Sharper was the active leader in interceptions even before last season. He's a HOF player.

It's very possible Usama gets cut this year. He was burnt toast on many a passing route this past year.
