What a great problem to have. Seems like he'd have even more value on offense. The slot position has been key for us over the years and a big gap the last few. If Strong is even close to what he showed, and Thornton develops, we got ourselves some speed!If they're not going to use him as an "inside" corner to cover slot receivers -- which is what I thought he was drafted for -- I think he should be permanently placed at slot receiver/punt returner a la Welker, Edelman, etc. That has been a position of need for three years now. Then let him play defense occasionally in emergency situations.
