Joe McKnight to see extensive time at CB

quote:

Joe McKnight to see extensive time at corner
Jets RB Joe McKnight is moving to cornerback "in a near full-time role."
This is apparently the Jets' plan to offset the loss of Darrelle Revis. "He’ll have a role on offense, but we’re also teaching him how to play corner," coach Rex Ryan said. "Not quite a full-time capacity, but he’s going to be over there a ton in the meetings and everything else. ... He has the necessary skills to be able to play corner. He’s got the speed, the size, the athleticism, the ball skills." McKnight was a star corner in high school, but that was over half a decade ago. The move speaks to both the Jets' increasingly flawed roster, and McKnight's disappointing production at running back. He's officially off the fantasy radar for good. Bilal Powell is locked in as the Jets' No. 2 back, and a major threat to Shonn Greene's workload.

He should have done this from the start, in college. Could've been a dynamite corner.

I agree. This is what he started out as in HS and was dominant as a Soph.

He'll most definitely have some growing pains at corner at first.

Yep he could have had a way better career at CB, versus on offense

Last year yes. 2 years before when they were actually good no. This year, i'm surprisingly ok with Tebow and the way everyone within the organization has been working. To me its just funny and embarrassing that the Jets backup to Revis is the 3rd string RB.

I don't believe he ever graduated from USC. After being made ineligible for the Emerald Bowl vs. BC, I don't think he stuck around long enough. He declared for the draft and that was that.
