If you listened to the interview with Farke where he spoke at length about Godfrey he explained quite clearly why he saw him as a future centre back and also that he went on loan last season as a midfielder deliberately because Farke felt that experience would be important for his development into a top class centre back.
Now you can disagree with Farke's reasoning but it made much more sense to me than your throwaway assumption that he doesn't know what he's doing!
Time will tell of course but I think there is already a fair body of evidence to suggest that Farke knows exactly what he's doing when it comes to involving young players in the first team.
