Now primarily linebackers in the NFL

    Both Bucannon and Barron, now primarily linebackers in the NFL, were safeties at Washington State and Alabama, respectively.

    Finding the next generation of speedy, hybrid linebackers probably means continuing to look behind the front seven."[It’s not that hard to] find guys like that in college," Walker said.

    "Getting them and teaching them, because they’re like baby linebackers, run fits and how to play certain runs is the challenge. In college most safeties are space safeties, so you don’t see these schemes in college a whole lot."

    What can be especially dangerous is that teams can’t really know how a player will react to an entirely different position until they’re thrown in the fire."
