I don't think there is an answer here. It really depends on what he wants to do with his life, where his priorities are. If it were me, I would certainly try out at as many positions as I thought I had a chance at. However, Trace has a degree to fall back on and aspirations of doing broadcasting, and seems to value that over playing DB in the NFL. If he doesn't want to, then he shouldn't I guess is my point.
"Maybe I'm just a dumb defensive coach"
I definitely think that if QB falls through, and someone wants to pay him money to let him relearn and try at safety, he should do it. Probably beats being an accountant by a long shot.
Never forget Virginia owes us a home game. Michigan State is our biggest rival.
But does it beat doing color commentary on BTN?
At his age to get a shot at any position in the NFL should be a dream come true, but it's his decision.
