All things considered, Tyrell Lyons' (Jacksonville, Fla./First Coast) transition to linebacker has been a smooth one.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder, who was a safety a year ago, has moved down into the box into a more natural playing position. And even though it isn't a finished product, there has been plenty of progress made.

"I am very versatile," Lyons said. "Anywhere they put me, I am going to go there. But I think I am doing pretty well at linebacker. It is very fun. I am making my reads. I would say that it would be going pretty good."
