S Damarious Randall, Cleveland Browns

Not every player is afforded the luxury of playing the position for which he’s best suited. Take Damarious Randall, for instance, who spent the past three seasons playing cornerback after the Green Bay Packers chose him with a first-round pick in 2015.

Randall played safety for the Arizona State Sun Devils, but his lack of size (5’11”, 196 pounds) and previous cornerback experience made him an intriguing option to change positions. However, he was never fully invested in the switch.  nfl nike jerseys cheap china

During an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio (via Dawgs by Nature’s Chris Pokorny), Randall said he didn’t enjoy watching tape as a cornerback, as he had to focus exclusively on wide receivers. Instead, he said he “likes to see the whole play.”nike jerseys nfl cheap

In March, the Packers traded Randall to the Cleveland Browns, who have already moved him to free safety.

Randall’s sideline-to-sideline speed and ball skills will allow Jabrill Peppers to move to strong safety. That will give defensive coordinator Gregg Williams a highly athletic duo to utilize in numerous different looks.  cheap nike nfl jerseys from china

CB Eli Apple, New York Giants

Eli Apple floundered under the direction of former New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo after the team selected him 10th overall in 2016. His career with the organization appeared to be over after a suspension for conduct detrimental to the team ended his 2017 campaign.

A new staff brings a different approach.nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap

“You hear things,” new Giants head coach Pat Shurmur said in May, per Newsday’s Tom Rock, “but I’m sure glad that I truly believe in a clean slate. He’s been nothing but professional, he’s been out here competing, he’s one of the guys that has been nike cheap nfl jerseys here almost every single day and I haven’t seen anything that somebody might have thought I heard. He’s been great.”

While Apple’s maturity has been brought into question, his natural ability hasn’t. At 6’1″ and 201 pounds, the 22-year-old defensive back is fluid in coverage and has the size to handle bigger receivers.

“In terms of his stature, his skill set, yeah, nike nfl cheap jerseys he’s what you’re looking for,” Shurmur added.

Apple came into the league at 20 years old and seemed to be overwhelmed by the transition. Now heading into his third season with a more understanding staff, his play could help overhaul his reputation.
