For those of you in the football business, I'm hoping you can share some insight as to how kids are slotted into the positions they fill as players. It would seem the same body types could be slotted as offensive or defensive players, i.e. WR or DB. By the time kids get to college, their positions are generally set. How does that happen? For instance, why DL or OL, WR or DB, LB, QB, or RB, or any similar scenario? As youth talent evaluators, how do those of you who are coaches place kids in the positions that determine their futures?
