The 2014 recruiting class has a great group of cornerbacks, as many college programs are looking for athletes who can cover to help stop today's revolution of spread offenses.
After looking extensively at this year's class of cornerbacks, a trend was noticed: Several could become safeties in college. Whether a cornerback is on pace to outgrow the position, lacks elite speed or has better vision from the middle of the third level, playing safety is an option for several 2014 prospects.
A cornerback in Texas could play four different positions in the secondary at the next level, while another prospect from the same state already could be too big for the perimeter. Also, a prized recruit committed to a Big Ten school will start his career at cornerback, but could leave as a safety.
