Even though, I'm not sure he can play OLB in a 3-4, I think of him as a Andre Carter type DE, pure 4-3 DE IMO.
Romeus is a 4th until he can prove he is healthy. Combine will be very telling. If he doesn't show good mobility, I predict him staying around a 4th round grade despite his production early in his career. Injuries really hurt him, and some scouts knock his change of direction ability because of his height, but also general tendency to stand tall and get washed out, losing leverage.
Jabaal Sheard blew him out of the water this year. With Romeus out, Sheard shined, so it was ever so apparent that any success Jabaal had before was all his own talent, and not the help of Romeus. Some people think it might be quite the opposite -- that Romeus was the benefactor of Sheard's play.
