My candidates for Free Safety includes:
Chris Horton 6-1, 211: Is a Great player who had a great rookie season in 08 and started 10 out of 14 games. He leads all safeties in interceptions with 3, along with LaRon who also has 3.
Kareem Moore 5-11, 218: Started with the first team doing the second mini-camp, and is more of a Free Safety then the rest of the Safeties on the Redskins rosters.
Reed Doughty 6-1, 205: Is a leader and a hard worker who gives it his all. He emerged as the Strong Safety after the death of Sean Taylor in 2007. Last season he posted 91 tackles, 2 sacks, and 1 interception
LaRon Landry 6-0, 210: Is the most athletic Safety on the Redskins, with all the tools to play either Safety position. Landry can be great, and he can be great at safety. He wants to hit, has good size, and only needs controlled space and responsibility to be a productive member of the Washington defense. This is why coaches is moving him to Strong Safety which is his natural position. But I still think he can be a great Free Safety.
Kevin Barnes 6-1, 188: This is my choice for Free Safety. Kevin Barnes in college, developed his reputation as one of the ACC's hardest hitters. He is the best Cornerback who can emerge as a Free Safety. In 2007-08 as a Maryland Terp, he recorded 85 tackles, including 5.5 for a loss, six interceptions, two forced fumbles and 14 passes defended. He was drafted third round (80 overall) in the 2009 Draft. I just would like him to pick up weight, maybe 20 pounds, so he can be around 210.
Tell me who you think should play Free Safety and WHY????
