Brandon Meriweather plays strong safety, but I believe that he would be better suited for free safety because he shows good instincts in coverage.
The only knock on Meriweather is that he has not bulked up since being in the NFL and is still 5'11", 200 lbs., which is small for a strong safety (sorry Bob Sanders—you are tiny).
Meriweather makes some big plays in coverage, and that was evident last season when he recorded nine pass deflections, five interceptions, and one defensive touchdown that he made off an interception for 56 yards.
Again, this is a wish list and not a projection/prediction, so the likely starter will be Brandon McGowan. :(
