Looking at Nnamdi the last two seasons it was clear to me that most of his bad play was due to confusion in the secondary. Although I did witness him flat out get beat on several occasions, but every corner gets beat at times ( Champ Bailey ), it doesn't mean he's not good. At the right price I would bring both corners back under the new system and draft a corner in the late rounds since CBs are deep in this years class. I'm apsolutely against reaching that high for Dee Milliner, when we need so much on defense ( LBs, NT, S, CBs ) and still have to address the OL. The whole defense was a mess, not just the corners. Give them another shot. Chip Kelly will bench players and give someone else a chance to step up when a players performace falls off. And I don't see Nnamdi playing safety because he's not built to dish or take the kinds of hits we need for a safety to do. Brian Dawkins was built like a warrior out of 300 and played like one, most corners shy away from contact as much as possible. Deion Sanders was one of the greatest corners to play the game but wouldn't or couldn't tackle. Even though he was a ball-hawk, all safeties have to tackle and Nnamdi didn't tackle well and is built simular to Neon Deion. He just better focus on being the player we thought he was coming out of Oakland and let us find a true safety. Rumor has it that Laron Landry is going to be free soon, we tryied to get him before and failed, we might want to give him a second look. After all he did make the pro-bowl which is more than I can say about anyone else on this roster.
