1) Rumor has it that Caleb Farley is moving back to defense.  Is this true? – YBYSAIAHokie

Chris Coleman: Apparently so, at least for the time being.  There is still so much about Farley that is unknown that I don’t really have an opinion on which position best suits him.

If you recall, he spent the first 12 or so practices of last spring as a cornerback.  Then he spent the final three or so practices, including the Spring Game, as a wide receiver.  Obviously he showed a lot of flashes in the Spring Game with his speed and his ability to high point the football.  Unfortunately, he tore his ACL very early in August and was forced to redshirt.

What we really don’t know about Farley is how well he can consistently catch the football.  He was a high school quarterback, and there were reports of some drops during practice in the week leading up to the NC-SC Shrine Bowl. 

Here’s a line from my scouting report on Farley…

“If Farley shows he can catch the football consistently at the college level, I think he’ll be a wide receiver.  If not, I think he’ll be a corner.”

I don’t have any idea whether or not a move back to corner is an indication of his hands or lack thereof, or whether it’s a reflection of depth at both wide receiver and cornerback.
