This is a really good question that I probably need to put into the help section.
My intention is that you will be able to move players around to a realistic extent. If you move someone who has played RT his whole career to a demanding position like LT, there is going to be a downgrade in performance. If you move the same RT to G, that may not be such a stretch. If you have a finess pass blocking LT and try to put him at RT, your power running may be affected. Eric Berry can clearly play either S position, but Lewis would probably get a downgrade if you move him to SS.
A light pass-rushing DE could probably move to rush OLB.
You get the idea. We may not do this perfectly in year 1, but that is the plan.
