You would figure that this is an option for the team. They have so many wideouts it's not even funny.
Chris Buckner is a decent example but he wasn't in their top flight of receivers anyway. There are other guys who would make great safeties or cornerbacks just based off pure athleticism.
I think that Mumme believes he really needs all these weapons on offense to have a legitimate shot at winning. They are just so deep here it's silly. The secondary had problems last season and didn't really add anyone of significance. You would have to figure that they would have the same problems yet again unless the new coaching staff is simply filled with miracle workers.
We'll see how Buckner does in his transition to the secondary. Apparently, they are trying him at safety. It's not an issue of athleticism for Buckner. He has the talent to cover people. But will he tackle? That's always the question for receivers making the move. Good defenders seek contact and love hitting. If Buckner has that passion, he could make a legitimate DB for the Aggies.
