4-3 DE doesn't necessarily translate to 3-4 OLB
While I certainly agree with you. Everette Brown's biggest knocks (that he was an undersized "tweener") are all traits that actually make him better suited in the 3-4 at OLB....
How our front office graded Everette Brown as a "third round value", yet saw Manny Lawson as a top 22 pick value is absolutely beyond me... whoever scouts pass rushers for the 49ers needs to be fired ASAP. It is absolutely unacceptable how terrible of a job they've done...
the 49ers are to scouting runningbacks as the SF Giants are to scouting pitchers ... but we are also to scouting pass rushers as the SF Giants are to scouting power bats (and trades/free agency for that matter")
