Kyle Wilson could be a very good FS. If the Jets don't trade away Revis or Cromartie, I hope they move Wilson to safety. He really could be a great fit there.

I'd love to see Eric Berry or a prime Ed Reed play a bit of RB. They'd have to train a bit differently to hold up, I'm sure, but they both have that kind of instinctual vision with the ball that you just can't teach.

Not sure if you are talking completely different position or just utilized differently. But Ziggy Hood would be a stud if he was in Wade Phillips 3-4 or a 3 tech in a 4-3 defense. When the guy is allowed to penetrate he is disruptive, but we try to use him like Aaron Smith...and there is only one Aaron Smith.

Julius Peppers would rewrite the record books anywhere else.

At his current weight I agree. If he added some weight he'd be the prototypical linebacker.

*Insert player who has put up elite numbers in their prime and claim they could play any position* Laughing

In all seriousness though, I think Julio Jones has a shot at TE since he's proven to be an effective blocker as a WR (although he'd be more of a pass-catching TE)
