The Bengals have been looking for a capable safety to play alongside Reggie Nelson for years. This post is by no means an overreaction to his poor game against the Dallas Cowboys. How about moving Dre Kirkpatrick to safety.
Watch his tape, highlights etc. you routinely see a guy willing to mix it up in the run game and a guy who lays the wood in the passing game. What you rarely see is a play on the ball from his corner spot or even tight coverage. Most of Dre’s highlight plays are of him tackling the ball carrier. Maybe the Bengals have found their answer at safety, Dre possess tremendous ball skills (for a safety), he is long and rangy and he comes to play in the run game.
When I look at Dre Kirkpatrick is see a pro bowl/all pro safety, I don’t see a pro bowl corner.
