Hosick is such a beast athlete it's hard to imagine sitting him on the bench for 3 years behind Mauk. He could be a high level safety or LB. He's fast, strong, has experience playing D (early in his Staley career) and likes contact.
I could see them using Hosick at QB in some Wildcat style packages, maybe in short-yardage or goalline situations. But I expect he lands at S or LB pretty quickly. Too good an athlete to leave him sitting behind Mauk for that long.
Makes a lot of sense given our struggles in the secondary. Though with as much depth as there is in the LB corps and with as much weight as he'd have to add, LB seems less likely.
