    When has Frazier done that before? I know Childress did it with Ryan D'imperio... but that's the only one that comes to mind.

    Frazier has played Webb at KR/WR would be my best example.

    That, Trying Sauce at FB, realizing he's playing quite well then moving him out of the backfield for no apparent reason, Harvin on the outside, Charlie Johnson at T,

    Sauce played FB during the Mike Tice years too.

    Harvin was used as a RB a lot in college. Their are interviews with Urban Meyer where he said thinking about using Harvin at WR/RB would keep him up at night. In 2011, Harvin averaged 6.6 ypa - so not that bad of a move.

    Charlie Johnson was a T when we got him from the Colts.

    What you're describing is more moving the pieces (players) around the field. A little different than changing positions from a DB to a WR (or LB to FB).

    That was also Childress.

    Well, now that all of our DB problems are solved, what other position should we throw a lot of low-to-mediocre talent guys at to fix? QB? DT? LB? WR?

    Oh...wait...we already "fixed" our WR problems too.... I forgot.

    He was draft as a wr by Childress but during the ota's they thought they'd keep him throwing.....may be Jackson should have be rotated in as a wr/kr during his tenure with the vikings

    Green moved Saucer to fb as well as Robert Tate a wr to corner when the Vikes had a shortage and he ended up staying for the rest of his career with stops in Baltimore and Arizona
