he isn't seeing that much action right now


There's probably a reason for that.
his ability to cover is not better then the current starters, which I would expect and why it takes time
What i wonder about is continually moving Aldon around, almost like an elephant or rover back, Rt, Lt, middle, split wide, but always moving. I think seeing that guy out there moving around,even during the snap would make a lot of guys really uneasy as to what exactly their blocking job was. I can envision aldon being able to cause that kind of terror for their OL. As for coverage, just take him out of it, and wherever he finally attacks from , have D cover his area. That I would really like to see.
