Steve Gleason at SS?

TSN SCOUTING REPORT: Safety/special teams ace Steve Gleason is in tremendous shape after a strong offseason of strength and conditioning work in Arizona. Gleason is a Steve Tasker-like force on special teams. He's a sure tackler who plays with great intensity. As a safety, Gleason is a bit of a 'tweener. He's somewhat undersized at strong safety and not quite fast enough and athletic enough to man the free safety spot. Gleason dedicated himself after an injury-filled 2004 season in which he missed time because of a broken hand, concussion and pulled hamstring. The hand injury prevented Gleason from weight-training his upper body, and his weight dropped below 200 pounds. This season he's already at 215 and all of the new weight is muscle.
I wonder if lil' Stevie is making a push to perhaps get some playing time at SS?

I think he is above average on ST, but would\'nt say great. he\'s got potential to be tho. As far as SS, i say give him a chance, who knows. But i doubt, he\'s to small, and if he did put all that muscle on, i agree sounds funny. Might be saying bye bye for 4 games. And remember how bad our ST was when they thought he could be the new ST ace. Thats right we had to go resign the real ace Fredy mack. I like him in the long run tho, just needs to get a little better is all.

If he plays as well at SS as he does on ST, I\'ll take it.

Sorry, I get a little tired of the draft speculation. Nothing wrong with it - it\'s just not my thing. Too many times in the past I got excited about what I thought the Saints could or should do, only to find that it was exactly what they wouldn\'t do. Too many Sullivan over Trufant picks. Too many Ricky Williams trades.

I\'ll be happy when mini-camps start.
