Tips for playing safety?

I'm pretty sure if I come back to semi pro football a coach would line me up at safety (SS or FS) because of my size (5'8" 195-200). I used to play cornerback 4 years ago but I was a lot smaller and had more speed (160-165 lbs.). I can cover and play the deep ball very well but I want to know some other things about the position because from what I've seen its like you're the QB of the defense. Can anyone give me some pointers for playing strong safety or free safety?
