Parcells used a 3rd rounder on an option QB, with the intention of turning him into a safety. If he'd used a 6th or 7th on Frost, it wouldn't have been a big deal. But he used a 3rd. That's the issue.
That's what I meant. Although Tanny also did it with Vlad. But you aren't asking them to change positions. Even then, going from guard to tackle, or corner to safety is one thing. QB to safety is tough, and you don't do that with a high 3.
