New Orleans Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins admits that when he was growing up, he thought the safety position “was for the slow guys, the guys who couldn’t play corner, or the guys who could just hit.”

And it’s hard to blame him. Pro Football Hall of Famer Rod Woodson, who played in seven Pro Bowls as a cornerback and four as a safety, said the perception was always that “it seemed like you moved somebody to safety just to get him out of the way.”
