The Redskins are grooming No. 51 overall pick CB David Amerson to play on the outside.
Amerson (6-foot-1, 205) has the size and ball-hawking skills to play safety, but he lined up almost exclusively at right corner in rookie minicamp this weekend. He has good speed (4.44 forty) and long arms (32 5/8"), and he's a very aggressive corner who likes to jump routes. Amerson led the nation with 13 interceptions in 2011 at NC State. The Redskins tied for third in the NFL with 21 interceptions in 2012.
