Play them at nickel, keep the corners at corner and the safeties at safety. Hamilton can be the first man in after Gilmin or Elliot and be in line to start in year 2.
I agree, moving Harrison Smith around certainly hurt him.

Arguably it did. Guy is now an all pro with crazy athleticism and was a mediocre starter for much of his career at ND because the coaches tried to move him around a bunch and hurt his development until he began to put it together his senior year.

Or you could say they moved him until they found his perfect position. If only they would have realized he is a down hill safety from the beginning.

Smith was recruited as a safety and spent freshman year as a scout team safety per his ND bio. Then he moved to linebacker for his sophomore season. Starting out his junior year he was again a (starting) safety but halfway through the season was moved back to linebacker. After that season he moved back to safety and stayed there.

ND was lucky he stayed for a fifth year and became a standout player. If he had played special teams instead of red-shirting his freshman year then his fifth year never happens at all.

Anyway, Smith probably wasn't moved to find his best position. He was moved around because the defense was terrible.

EDITED to include info from a more careful reading of his bio.
