Lots of folks think Ifo Ekpre-Olomu will play safety, though he's small. I still love him as a nickel corner as long as his knee is fine.
I recently got onto Damarious Randall from Arizona State, who played both in college. Better safety than corner. Could be a very good safety, I gave him a 2nd round grade.
Eric Rowe is another guy who played safety but moved to corner as a senior. He's a top 30 talent for me and a personal favorite. Probably better at safety early on but he has the tools to be an elite corner.
Anthony Jefferson of UCLA is a good candidate.
There was a guy from Navy at the Shrine Game, Parrish Gaines, who has great size and has played both
Jacorey Shepherd from Kansas, more because he's lousy at CB
Justin Cox from Miss. St.
I haven't seen him yet but I know someone who is quite bullish on a thick corner from West Chester named Shabazz.
