Can we stop with the Carter to linebacker talk? The dude isn't a sound tackler and would be worse at linebacker than what we trotted out this year.
Also safeties have to tackle the shiftiest guys out there in slot WRs. Guys are not only moved to LB from safety because they cannot cover, it’s also open field tackling. Carter fills like a mad man, so naturally he would work well at LB because if he hits you before you get a full head of steam you go backwards. He doesn’t have to tackle the guys that can make you miss in a phone booth as often at LB. he doesn’t have the hips for safety but is good near the box in line tackling. Would’ve been a good LB

It's probably because most of them never played a down of organized football.

Go Canes!!!!
What? Players switch positions all the time at after HS. Colleges often put players where they think they are best at. Safeties to LBs and corners to safety and LBs to D-line occur often. DE to DT as well. Positions are not set in stone

Baltimore starting fullback played nose tackle his whole career, including when he first started in the league. And that dude can catch!

Hall barely has speed at S and u going to put him at corner? Seems legit
He’s got speed. At safety he just seems to lack the cognitive ability for the positron so it slows him down. Put him at CB where he’s in man or simple zones he will ply faster. He’s always hesitant at safety

Yall even bringing this up is crazy. If you think Hall is a CB your football IQ is 0. Go on youtube and watch Hall play CB at a camp. You'll never bring this up again. Yall tried the same **** with Avante Williams.

Not true at all
You obviously have never played football
It’s much harder to tackle in the open field than in the box. It’s easy to chase plays down when they run away from you at LB as well. The most sound tacklers on the field are safeties, no doubt
I played safety in college my man, Killians own Bobby Washington was a teammate of mine. Anyhow, Carter is fundamentally unsound when it comes to tackling, he's always going for the big hit. He doesn't fill the alley well and is constantly overruning plays. If you think the most sound tacklers on our team are the safeties then you need to go back and watch Bolden and Carter in all our games this year and see how many times they missed the ball carrier.

Thanks King. Your logical rant doesn't change the fact that most of the people that are constantly barking about players switching positions as if they're chess pieces, probably haven't played a down of organized football in their natural born life.

Go Canes!!

Carter has enjoyed success in the pseudo-linebacker role as a blitzer dating back to 2017.

With our struggles at LB and with the influx of talent at safety, it may make sense for he and Hall to try something new.
