Nate Starks – RB to DB
Another guy who made our Most Underrated player list, Starks should have a more than viable role in the offense this year as he leads a young pack. He’s tough, has a good burst and has soft enough hands to make the catch when he needs to. Those skill sets would translate very well to the back end of a defense.
Starks is also a guy that doesn’t necessarily avoid contact and will seek it out to give his devastating effect on tacklers.
That fearlessness combined with his athletic ability would make for one hell of a box safety. He could be the mini-backer the Bruins experimented with seasons ago and not be a liability in the passing game. Mora has turned runningbacks into defensive monsters before, why not again?
