RICHMOND — When Su’a Cravens was drafted a year ago in the second round out of USC, defensive coordinator Joe Barry and coaches saw him as a linebacker, despite Cravens playing safety in college. Cravens wasn’t a big fan of the move, but did what he was asked and played linebacker his rookie season. This offseason, Cravens made the switch full time to safety.
“It doesn’t feel like I left safety,” he said. “It feels like I’ve played sort of a version of the position throughout my college career and a little bit last year.”
Make no mistake about it, he’s happy to be back at the safety position.
